In 1958, the paddle wheel of the mill was replaced by an auger in the same place as the paddle wheel, which can also be electrically driven. The head of the auger is 1.40 meters.

The former Albras bearing factory, located in the Dutch borough, was built in 1818 to reduce the size of the southern silkworm. The wedge mill burned in 1817 was replaced by a wheeled or signaled mill until 1881, when the mill was signaled to other factories in the region. A 5. 90-meter-diameter shovel mill grinds the water from the crusher. In 1971, the factory was officially retired. The factory is located in a densely populated area and cannot be visited. The factory has been owned by Simav since 1968.
