Master Hands (1936) Chevrolet Manufacturing
Classic "capitalist realist" drama showing the manufacture of Chevrolets
from foundry to finished vehicles. Though ostensibly a tribute to the
"master hands" of the assembly line workers, it seems more of a paean to
the designers of this impressive mass production system. Filmed in Flint,
Michigan, just months before the United Auto Workers won union recognition
with their famous sitdown strikes.
Selected for the 1999 National Film Registry of "artistically, culturally,
and socially significant" films.

I do not own the rights to this film. This is for fair use. Peter Graves is
the host of the show, so any Airplane! jokes will be interesting.

The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927, and was know by various
names including Tin Lizzie, Flivver, T‑Model Ford, or just 'T'.
The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile became
popular. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the
car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this
was because of Ford's innovations, including assembly line production
instead of individual hand crafting.
On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off
the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan.
Mercedes Benz Factory
Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen: Bremen plant to produce additional model of the
C Class model range as of 2011
• Development as a competence centre: Bremen plant expanding production
operations to include Coupé of the C-Class
• New variant to be produced in addition to the C-Class Saloon, the
C-Class Estate and the GLK as of 2011
• Flexible production: Coupé to be produced with three existing models
on a single line
Peter Schabert, Head of the Bremen plant: "Decision another milestone on
our way to becoming the C-Class competence centre and a clear sign of trust
in Bremen team's capabilities and standards."
Bremen - The Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen is gearing up for the production
of a fourth model of the high-volume C-Class model range. As of 2011, a
Coupé will be added to a flexible production line, which already produces
the three existing models. This will be a new addition to Bremen's current
production portfolio in the C-Class segment, comprising the Saloon, the
Estate and the compact GLK sport utility vehicle (SUV).
"The decision by the Board of Management to produce the Coupé version of
the current C-Class here in Bremen as well represents another important
milestone on our way to becoming Mercedes' competence centre for the
C-Class and is a clear sign of the trust in the Bremen team's capabilities
and standards," says Peter Schabert, Head of the Mercedes-Benz plant in
The Bremen plant is developed into the worldwide competence centre for the
high-volume C-Class model series. Allocating production of the new Coupé
to the plant is in keeping with this strategy. As announced in December
2009, the launch of the next generation of the C-Class at the plant as of
2014 will see production of the C-Class Saloon for markets in Europe
concentrated at a single location together with the production of the other
C-Class model variants.
The Bremen plant is already demonstrating the flexibility of its production
operations by producing three models (C-Class Saloon, C-Class Estate and
GLK) on a single assembly line. The vehicles are able to pass along the
assembly line in any conceivable order precisely as customer orders
require, irrespective of model, variant (right- or left-hand drive,
all-wheel or rear-wheel drive) and equipment. From 2011 the Bremen plant
will be integrating a fourth model into the production process in the guise
of the Coupé, demonstrating the plant's flexibility once again.
Production portfolio of the Bremen plant.
In addition to the models of the C-Class model series, vehicles belonging
to the E-Class are also produced in Bremen, with the Coupé and Cabrio
running in flexible configuration on a single production line. The
roadsters of the SL- and SLK-Class are also produced exclusively in Bremen.
With a workforce of around 12,600, the Mercedes-Benz plant is the largest
private-sector employer in the region.
Volkswagen TSI Engine 3D Animation
https://www.eurocarnews.com - Volkswagen AG - The most effective means for
reducing fuel consumption is so-called downsizing. By reducing displacement
and thereby lowering frictional losses, a lower specific fuel consumption
can be achieved, and this goes hand in hand with better efficiency. The
innovative path to the future is the combination of Supercharger and turbocharger. The Supercharger compensates for typical drive-off
weakness at low revs of purely turbocharged gasoline engines, while the turbocharger really puts out at higher revs. This
combination of two types of chargers is unique among engines mass-produced
