Whoever knew that watching a robot stamp frock could be so satisfying?
Tesla just recently showed a pair of short videos (below) shot at their factory in Fremont, California, stamping metal sheets for their Model 3 and Model Y electric cars.
Tesla’s factory for manufacturing vehicles for North American customers works around the clock as the cyclic sound and speed make for a stunning display of advanced technology.
Watch as heavy hydraulic presses dip inside-out with sheets of metal and down to form the front and bottom parts of the hydraulic frock (for the front trunk, who doesn’t know).

The footage follows a long video (below) from Tesla a few years ago, showing a Model 3 at the same factory together. The car is seen moving along the production line as a series of robots and humans build the Model 3 piece.
In keeping with the robot theme, Tesla recently kicked off its battery-making process in an artistically produced video (below) aimed at people applying for jobs at their upcoming Giga Texas and Giga Berlin factories To encourage is to do.
Tesla’s Fremont facility includes 5.3 million square feet of manufacturing and office space and employs more than 10,000 people in various roles.
The site was home to General Motors from 1962 to 1982, then GM and Toyota’s new United Motor Manufacturing partnership from 1984 until the end of 2009.
Tesla purchased the facility in 2010 and two years later it was ready for Model S production, the first vehicle to come from the line.
According to Tesla, the site also includes an employee training center, cafeteria and food truck, gym, 24/7 in-house medical center and outdoor patios.
Tesla’s latest Fremont factory videos came on the same day the company slashed the price of the Model S and Model Y’s 17-inch touchscreen upgrade from $ 1,500 to $ 1,500.
Earlier this month, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration asked Tesla to recall about 158,000 vehicles, including the 2012–2018 Model S and 2016–2018 Model X. The company has not yet announced whether it will proceed with the recall as it is trying to fix it with an over-the-air software update.
