    DMG have been building linear motor machines for the best part of two decades I'm pretty sure. They were an option on our NTX, the cost was significant.

    WTAF is this?

    We buy a lot of different material from a lot of different sources and the certs ALWAYS state actual measured mechanicals and chemicals.

    I had similar expectations to you, but I also can vouch that it's actually good.

    That isn't a result I expected to be entirely honest! So it would appear that MC is capable of actually properly utilising multiple threads - that puts a different perspective on things.
