    Teaser shots taking inside the Rupes Manufacturing Plant in Milan, Italy

    Teaser shots taking inside the Rupes Manufacturing Plant in Milan, Italy

    Below are three teaser shots taken inside the Rupes Manufacturing plant in Milan, Italy. We toured about 75% of the plant and for about 50% of the plant I was given permission to take and share pictures. At least 25% of the plant is top secret with no outsider access. (Perfectly normal)

    Have to push away from the keyboard and do some work with Yancy out in the studio today but these three pictures should give you an idea of what's to come as soon as I get some time to go through and upload all of the pictures to create a really cool thread that for you will be like taking a virtual tour though the Rupes plant.


    Enjoy!

    Thanks but I'm back... travels for this month are over.


    Arrived back into the U.S. and then updated the thread about visiting Rupes in Milan, Italy in Post #38 here,


    Team Autogeek to visit Rupes in Milan, Italy



    Landed safely!

    Driving from Miami to Stuart at 5pm traffic...






    Did a little catch-up work after arriving here to AG at 7:00am this morning and then moved out to the studio with Yancy to dive into a new project. Should be done out there in a couple more hours and if I can I'll start going through more pictures on my Canon Rebel from the trip.

    Sounds like you had an incredible time Mike! I'm sure it was full of excitement.

    Looking forward to seeing a thread on touring an Italian tool company.

    Re: Teaser shots taking inside the Rupes Manufacturing Plant in Milan, Italy

    To me.... this is one of the more interesting things I saw while touring the manufacturing plant.

    Would anyone like to venture a guess as to what is taking place in the below two pictures?






    Sorry this picture is a tick out of focus as I was shooting through a Plexiglas window but I think you can get the idea as to which model tool this is inside this chamber.








    Tell you what, if someone can identify or accurately describe what this test is for you can win a prize off of Nick's desk.


    I'm offline till Monday to decompress and recharge my batteries so I'll check back with your guesses on Monday.

    Two Rules, please stick to them...

    1. First person to post the right guess wins.
    2. One guess per forum member.
