Chinese Stamping Press Load/Unload System.. On the cheap

This is an older video but I searched and have not found it ever on LL.
Was filmed by EU and USA manufacturers on a tour of factories best practices in China. The press the workers are sitting in is about 600 - 1,000 tons of pressure. Normally, there are metal guards/screens all around the press that would prevent you from getting close enough to get hurt and the parts are removed either by machine or by hand only after the press has stopped and is locked in the up location.
This answers the question of why the Chinese can make parts so much cheaper than the rest of the world. And if a worker gets hurt or killed, there's a line of 50 waiting to take his place.
