I'm wondering what types of machines/setups manufactures would be using to make the small aluminum parts such as the ones used for R/C cars. As you see in the link below, the part is very small yet quite detailed/complex. They would also be making ten's of thousands of these parts, just curious what they would be using to make all these small parts.
Or would something like that be cast aluminum?
However I know there are very small parts out there, that are machined and they are producing 10000's of them. I can't help to wonder what their production line would look like. 50 tiny mills with someone standing there changing work piece positions? I know a lot of these larger companies would have full automation and robotics, but there's plenty of small guys who are pumping out tons of product who wouldn't have the money for full automation machines.
Maybe i'm out in left field but i can't help to wonder.
