Pics and Vids of factories

does anyone have pictures and/or videos of the factories for any major paintball marker manufacturer. Preferably showing their machine tools such as mills, lathes, and CNC machines

Exciting until you do the knuckledragger jobs for a few months...then boring

Not to say automation is trite. It's just no different regardles of what you're making....unless of course the machine makes another of itself and runs amok.

Automation making other automation has been around for years. It's the programming for "destroy all humans" that we're worried about.

ya true if youve seen one shop uve seen em all our family friends work building automotive parts...they have about 12 cnc machines that run 24 hours a day that pop out these parts and if one for some reason stops working during the night it automatically calls them and lets them know that the machine is down
