Eight Giant Presses for Tesla Berlin and Walmart Canada Triples Tesla Semi Order

• by Brian Wang

Giga Presses are the largest high-pressure die casting machines in the world, with a clamping force of 6,100-tonne-force (60,000 kN) die casting machines for Giga Berlin. Elon Musk at Battery Day said that Tesla developed new Aluminum alloys so that the Tesla casts would not need heat treatment after pressing. The press is about 14.4 feet tall and 39 feet long. However, there appears to be more equipment added to the top and front so the whole structure looks 20 feet tall and 50 feet long.
