Ever heard of “The Machine That Makes The Machine”?.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk just confirmed that the biggest casting machine ever made will be installed in Gigaberlin once the on-going construction is complete.
This machine patent titled “MULTI-DIRECTIONAL UNIBODY CASTING MACHINE FOR A VEHICLE FRAME AND ASSOCIATED METHODS” was filed in 18.01.2018, with the Publication Number 20190217380 is finally built and ready to start performing wonders.
Above features: Tesla Model Y one cast part: (70 parts ——> 1 part) “Multi-Directional Unibody Casting Machine for a Vehicle Frame and Associated Methods”
According to Musk, It “will be amazing to see it in operation!” being the “Biggest casting machine ever made“. He also adds that this world-class casting machine “will make the rear body in a single piece, including crash rails.”.
The single piece casting machine for Model Y has been spotted in Fremont, after installation. Gigashanghai and Giveberlin installation next!.
The benefits are unlimited. This will reduce the cost of producing the Model Y frame significantly, as instead of using several machines, a single machine will get the job done. Fewer materials, less waste, cost-effective, less footprint, the list goes on. The body frame will also be stronger as there will be only 1 part, instead of 70 parts. This will improve the car aerodynamics and perhaps makes it faster. This should also make the car lighter, compared.
At the end of the day, this will reduce the price of Model Y, which means customers can afford it better than before.
The fact that Elon Musk has already stated that Gigaberlin will be world-class whenever it comes to manufacturing electric vehicles, and the fact that he has also confirmed that the 1 part world-class casting machine is what Gigaberlin will be using is in itself satisfying.
Gigaberlin will be building a new kind of Tesla Model Y that the world is yet to see. Ofc Made in Berlin Model Y will look identical to the Made in China and Made in USA Model Ys, but if we dig deeper, Made in Berlin Tesla vehicles will surely be built using world-class technology, perhaps never seen anywhere else.
Investors must be pumped about what’s coming in 2021. We ain’t seen nothing yet!.
