How does this thing work?
That’s gnarly. I wonder what they made with it?
Wow, I didn’t know those K-cups required such heavy machinery…
God damn that is some impressive machinery.
What the hell is that for?
How do you get whatever you are pressing out… it’s got cranes holding the part up on both sides.
Fun fact, if you look in the center of the press you can see the Krupp logo, which is 3 circles intersecting. These circles are meant to be railroad wheels since that was one of Krupp’s original staple products. Anything with steel and heavy industrial stuff was done though. Krupp merged with Thyssen in 1999 to become thyssenkrupp (it’s no longer capitalized, as a symbolism of equality between all people and facets of the business. “No one and nothing is above anyone or anything else.”). They operate in a variety of business ventures today and their staple industry (in terms of profit) is now elevators.
Amazing how a company known for something today did something vastly different decades ago in Germany. Hey, Bayer…how ya doin’?
You can tell it’s an industrial press because of the way that it is.
