Tesla Buys The World’s First 8000-Ton Die-Casting Machine For Its Cybertruck

Idra announced that it has received an order for an 8,000 ton die casting machine — the world’s largest foundry machine. The order presumably comes from Tesla, who wants to use it to manufacture part of the Cybertruck.

It is important to mention that Tesla has not yet made it official; however, the machine manufacturer announced that the first order was already secured for a “world leader in vehicle manufacturing.”

On the other hand, Elon Musk had announced in early 2021 that Tesla wanted to afford such a monstrous casting machine to make the Tesla Cybertruck a reality.

We will soon order the equipment needed to make the Cybertruck work. In fact, we are going to use even bigger machines for the rear body of the Cybertruck, because it is obviously bigger and has a longer pan to support a lot of loads. Therefore, we will use an 8,000-tonne casting press for the rear body.”

Tesla is already using a gigantic die-casting machine to produce part of the Model Y. Tesla wants to build the Cybertruck in Texas. The machine for the Model Y, however, is located in Fremont, California.
