Footings for the Tesla Giga Casting machines at Giga Berlin are being prepared.
According to Tesla's Giga Berlin layout plan of the casting area, Tesla will commission 8 Giga Casting machines at Giga Berlin.
"If we take a look at the above layout diagram and compare it with the following drone photo from yesterday, we can see that the footings for the Giga Casting machines have almost completed," reports Tesla Oracle.
Tesla Oracle also says, based on the local reports from Jurgen and Tobias, that Tesla Gigafactory in Berlin will be the first automotive manufacturing plant ever to introduce full-fledged car production involving giant die-cast machines.
"These Giga Casting machines will first be used to make Tesla Model Y-front and rear single-piece underbody castings. The net result of Giga Casting will be less complicated, cost-effective, and faster car production. The single-piece die-casts will make Tesla cars more rigid and safer when coupled with the Structural Battery," reports Tesla Oracle
