Tesla Factory Tour with Elon Musk!

Tesla Factory Tour with Elon Musk!


[Music] hey what’s up guys I’m cabby HD here and welcome to the sequel to the previous video so the part 2 which is the mini factory tour with Ilan I want to preface it just with the intro by saying first of all it is really difficult to shoot good video in that factory as you’ll both see in here it’s extremely loud and extremely busy so this is more of just like a walking around and having fun and checking things out it’s it’s actually probably just like 15 or 20 percent of the actual model S&X factory process it’s not the whole thing it’s mostly just Elon showing us around and in fact I didn’t even really say much during this interview is more just like I was kind of like a kid in the matrix just kind of absorbing everything and then it also kind of cuts abruptly at the end when Elon basically gets pulled into his next meeting but I still thought it was a ton of fun and worth sharing and also I should mention this entire video shoot this production would not be possible without my buddy John from the TLD channel and his crew who helped with audio who were the muscle with the Steadicam he has an entire behind-the-scenes video of this process on his channel I’ll link that right below so if you want to check that out after watching this in part one feel free but until the next one this is your mini tour of the Tesla factory with Elon enjoy gives us access to the Central Corridor yeah so it’s really just like lifting it up and over so the car that ends up here came all the way down this previous yeah yeah exactly so these robots are really just to give us act like through it through access okay yeah so so it’s gonna pick it up and transfer it to the other robot yeah but like I think like you know I could design improvement we should do is like really just the one robot just passes to the other robot just pick it up yeah there’s a third one I love it yeah it’s like it puts them on a table the table rotates it’s like like if it is if it does it’s over we just have that giant robot pass it to that giant robot there yeah handoff yeah it’s like a thousands of like little things like that that help improve production general assembly kind of operates them kind of a you so it goes close coming over there go all the way down here and then pulley that way and you see the car get progressively more complex as it goes down the general assembly line what does it look like when it starts this side of the assembly line oh we can go there alright oh there that’s true stop there so at the beginning here you can get a good sense for there’s like like general assembly is what I was talking about as being really well suited to people yeah because you got a lot of weird things that you got to put together like you know like look at some of these you know assemblies they’re like like it’s pretty hard for a robot to like connect this on that makes sense yeah it’s you know like depending upon how it comes out of the box it could be like in a little different position but it’s pretty easy for somebody like oh it’s it’s like I seem to move it like an inch you know bolt it in it’s probably really hard to write software – yeah kind of know to happen all these different ways yeah so you try to order if you try to have the robot do this you gotta have like a complicated vision system like a vision system faults out it’s like it’s not quite right all right part we we have a robot in our studio that moves a camera around and the hardest part is when it falls yeah you know person there to know what to do exactly so that doesn’t happen much like parts that are that are complicated and fiddly like wiring harnesses are especially difficult you see how like the wiring – kind of meets the snake we’re the car yeah it’s literally like flex winding like a snake through the car yeah you gotta like poke it through holes and do various things that’s super difficult for a robot see like then how they’re like putting the ignition system there right so you use like a little bit of mechanical assistance with the winch and whatnot but then it’s pretty straightforward for the guys to just like get that in there and they’re like if they see this an issue with the part then like the exhale of this process got a problem like we’ll put it over here for to you know to get fixed like this is like semi lines like moving slowly yeah so that grooves long and then if you know gets more like time to get things done like that you can extend on this and I think you mentioned like the the speed of the car coming out the other side is like one mile an hour or something like that yeah super slow you want to speed this up right yeah that’s nice not even one mile all right you’re just starting that right now won’t play or sex but or but three it’s like getting close to a mile an hour okay okay walking sees three miles narrow so it’s like anyone through walking speed at one motor all right you can see like when you look on the inside of the car you see like how many little complicated little pieces there are a lot um you know the things that are meant to for insulation corrosion protection air bags road noise that gets all this stuff that gets put in here yeah you can see like these are like the side airbags here I must be looks like pretty cool like most will never see like the inside of the car there’s a million things you never see yeah I’m in the car every day this is like sorry guys sorry to rep if you don’t mind being on like I’m like you know the internet and stuff they’re cool eat useful and actually don’t interrupt your work but you know it’s like you see like colleague there’s like a lot of tricky pieces and like if per person like this is like durable straightforward yeah you know it takes a bit of training kind of speeds ever but like once once you like basically it’s like like a pro human can do this super well and it’s like hard for the robots to do that connected when we go to the like the body welding I’ll show you like what’s like what’s a robot good at and mostly like there’s tons of robots like tons of people here at tons of robots there there’s so much complexity and variation here you’re gonna grab those wires when it comes through actually here yeah this door so like this is the qualified less stuff in it and then it goes it’s you know we’ll see the beginning of it right and then that goes all the way around gets more more stuff at it and there’s it end at the end it all general assembly ends probably somewhere down there yeah okay you can see the COG get progressively multiplex as we had more parts to it you know this place used to employ like about 5,000 people and I would got like we could we got 10,000 people just in this location yeah so what we do is we have like tons of shuttles and like recurse ride-sharing yeah we’ve got the ferry about the transit station finally like wet went up so just like trying to get people here is it’s not easy what is this oh this is actually like this is one of my favorite dumb robots okay yeah I’m a fan right now that’s pretty cool it’s like there’s a lot of fancy robots that like but they have like let’s say issues they break down all the time because these little guys are super great like they follow this magnetic stripe uh-huh see basically it’s like super easy to program you don’t need to be a programmer because just like lay down the magstripe and Obama it just follows the backstrap that is it perhaps so many sensors on the front so if if it sees an obstacle it seems like something in the way it just ups and then as soon as exciting moves out the way it just keeps going you know just like there’s a stuck little thing all day long like a little train like you’re talking about robust folks yeah and one of the it’s like that’s like we’re like actually doing things manually can connect to be more more efficient because if you have like a lot of complicated robots particular you have a 24/7 operation like we have with model 3 then if the robot bolts out you’re going to have 24/7 like advanced robot technicians thanks and if the robot like accidentally crashes and like breaks a fixture that’s like man okay now right now we’ve got the light we’re good line down if you have to red alert then I get pulled on my cell phone or 2:00 in the morning and it’s yeah not a lot to try to fly apartment from Germany it’s like we literally have that two days ago do you happen to it when you get new robots do you build the robots or do you order them in and program them so this like different classes that there’s many many different types of robots so the like the giant robot they were still lifting the car yeah it’s like it’s that’s that that is a catalog item but then we have to program the emotions for a hub and then and the end effector is that it’s custom so the in effect that picks up the car drops it off that’s a custom-made thing okay so it’s kind of like you can like buy just like powerful arm but it’s just like having an arm stuck in the ground and then you’re like okay what does the arm do you got to tell it everything to do yeah and then you got to put sensors on it and put fixtures but that’s like kind of like that robot over there that’s also one of the ones that picks up the car oh these look like named after x-men oh yeah just x-men I think bobble in experiments oh yeah that’s such a run out of Nate day yeah yeah okay so you can see like this is like quite a beast of a robot you can’t just buy that robot lay those cases to Phaneuf robot and by the robot for then the end effector that’s carrying the car is something that’s custom and they got through the programming and the like wire in the sensor isn’t that kind of thing to the the level of precision of this massive robot is it so like as far as repeatable action is it literally the same path every single yeah plus or minus an inch oh no it’s a centimeter it’s better than that for a bit robot there’s a little less precision than a smaller robot yeah but say a medium-sized robot will be exort two point two point three millimeters what is the most popular paint color coming through here that’s black black yeah it actually varies by country I like watch out there’s a dumb robot coming through oh yeah no this guy’s like pretty pretty cool like what [Music] you go wrong I don’t know you trust him more than I do yeah okay okay okay all right good job good job robot yeah I I see a lot of silver and I see a lot of white model eggs yeah this is New Jersey black and white are the two most colors – especially colors okay the one micro are like blacks light is is slightly more popular than white in the US but in like Europe it’s way more Populi quiet it’s a very rare color in Europe per car okay in the US it’s like it’s it’s about even with with black Beckham I have two more spam fellowship yeah yeah and here you can see battery pack this is like to be like a mating station for the battery pack oh this is literally connecting the battery to the car here you can see a second combination of manual automatic so it’s like they’re aligning and I was like yeah exactly it’s a it’s done primarily by the robot system why don’t want to made it the system but then you got a person just making sure that if the fine-tuning is there how do you feel about matte matte or satin colors that’s not about that letter I actually like the aesthetics of matte it’s really tricky to prepare match so okay yes you can polish it out with that if you get like a little thing it’s really hard so then rematch the so it looks like an even Matt yeah just like you know that’s their point yeah so it’s doable it’s so neat I sure would like to do that in the future but like right now for example like hey the paint shops really operating at full tilt so adding any complexity of the paint shop we’re definitely wise right now but right I think it’d be a cool thing to do in the future so these are sub assemblies so you can see like the front and rear drive units being both up ya sub assemblies then feed the main assembly line there’s a long and some of them well it’s it’s integrating SNS okay yeah it’s making about two guys in cars a week it’s model three entirely completely separate I guess inside the same building but separate create whole process the only place where model 3 and S&X come together is in the paint shop so the paint shop is processing s3x simultaneously down the same line but otherwise general assembly separate bloody separate yeah everything else is second so just the paint shop where they come together you’ve mentioned you’ve slept in the factory to be able to immediately like diagnose problems and hands on fix what’s not right what type of things happen that you can immediately fix or immediately take action on it actually less Testaments last year a mostly spent at the factory trying to help fix the battery production it’s a marginal production and it’s just it’s a lot of little things like looking at a tete each at each little little tiny part each process say is the process necessary like of course the best part is no part best part that process is no process and occasionally at the design level you think something’s necessary but then turns out it’s not so it’s just like making sure connect connecting between design and manufacturing make sure if make sure you’re close loop on that just saying like hey is is this if it let’s say it’s a it’s a lot of real simple stuff that’s like x times a thousand yeah so if we have like a automated volt driver going in like what’s the RPM to twelve settings for the boat driver and we make that go faster usually musicman unnecessary movements like for example I actually don’t really like the tech that we lift the cars over and back ideally that would be a robot hand off you’re getting rid of a middle stage yeah exactly the middle sorority was like putting it on a turntable and then the spoon tables rotating and there another robust picking it up is actually prom is like sometimes the student table breaks down and and so okay so it’s like okay that’s eliminate the turntable and just have a robot go to robot and then you don’t have like the turntable breakage to consider so it’s a lot of minimizing things that can go wrong and maximizing the efficiency of this simple thing is I go right it’s like there’s like design necessity of every part of at every process yeah this the speed at which especially the robots are going all there are there any is there any unnecessary movement of the brush in life that that isn’t value-added like we’re actually doing something yeah like we’re placing elements in the production system that are not not needed or redundant
