1847 – Threshing machine

In 1847, Munktell designed Sweden's fist threshing machine. His master mechanic, Johan Thermaenius, left the company to start his own enterprise in Torshälla, Sweden, where he built the machine according to Munktell's design.

This was the start of a long epoch (until 1981) of threshing machine- and combine harvester manufacture.
