How Caterpillar builds a bulldozer

Оценок: 702 | Просмотров: 218453
We got a rare chance to peek inside Caterpillar’s state of the art Athens, Ga., facility and see a D5K2 dozer come together from cold, bare steel to finished product. (The factory also makes mini-hydraulic excavators, and D3K2 and D4K2 dozers as well). The process uses a combination of hand-tack and robot welding, CNC machining, robotic powder coat painting, a lot of logistics and the deft touch of 1,400 skilled workers.

Very choppy to watch, especially with obtrusive titles bobbing up and down. I turned off the sound.

How does Caterpillar build anything in Georgia? They use robots instead of skilled humans, and the ones they do use are cheese-eating rat scabs making a fourth of what a skilled Caterpillar employee used to make up north, with no benefits, long hours, and voting for the idiots that created this mess REPUBLICANS!!!!

How? The same way CAT builds machines in China and India. In today's 'Murica, employees are an asset like any other piece of equipment. Our workforce has been brainwashed to accept whatever our overlords are willing to provide, just so the masses can shop at Walmart, eat at Mickey D's, surf the web on a smartphone, and make a car payment. We had a strong middle class once upon a time, but, until this current economic paradigm collapses, and it will eventually, most of the wealth created will keep going to the top 1%.

This video missed the mark completely. Irritating music, sloppy editing, couldn't afford a voice over and the titles blocked the frame of view. Next time get a professional company to produce the video or ask "How It's Made" to do it. What a waste of time.

why makes these videos with stupid music instead of manufactoring sound. Video sucks
Jim Clarke (8 месяцев назад)
A bit boring to watch with the writing popping up like that, voice would have been much better, could have enjoyed the video

started working in1966, getting up close to HD machinery, even did OJ on a slip stick,.crazy. I'm retired; One fellow said why bother painting it, well goes hand in hand with the lady you might like to date, putting on her make up, makes it look good, other wise it be a pile of ugly rust. not the lady. we used to paint our iron with a solvent blow gun's, what ever it was that had to be repaired, welding or other wise, a good coat of cat yellow. a good way to hid the sins.

More annoying background music. What is wrong with a humanoid speaking so we don't miss the video while trying read the captions? Guess I'll buy a kubota mini.

Not a single hard hat with overhead cranes, and I get my balls busted not wearing one in an open feild.
Supaooze (2 месяца назад)
kroozman10 it’s easier for the bosses to say hard hat all the time instead of trying to decide if and when or not to wear the hard hat. Also you always have people trying to push the boundaries of when they don’t need it. So they just say wear it all the time then there’s no misunderstanding and folks trying to take the piss.

In the event of any accident OSHA investigators will ask if the employee was wearing full PPE. Make no sense to me but the is required. Its also employers protecting themselves in a lawsuit.
Scott Pankhurst (6 месяцев назад)
kroozman10 - because some fucking OSHA moron without a clue told them they have to, and now the company is shit scared of both liability and insurance costs not the enforce the ruling, regardless of the idiocy and futility of doing so.

In that situation if your under a crane with a load above you thats mistake number 1, second Its common sense that if you need a crane to lift heavy metal parts then it doesn't matter if you are wearing an indestructible hard hat your neck stills breaks and you possibly get squished depending on the weight, hard hats only protects you from small objects that hit you head but the also let the people around you know where you are i.e. crane operator

Parts assembled in US. Parts made in....pretty much every country in the asian or south American continents
Vladimir_Bone Spur_tRump (2 месяца назад)
TRPG pilot Duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Like our anemic automobile industry, it is not manufactured here. It is assembled here. Like a Lego toy. But you're too young and lack the knowledge and depth to understand when all those components were once made in this country.
Paul Christensen (6 месяцев назад)
Parts/components that are made else where in the world are assembled/put together to make a machine in the US. Then marketed as made in the US....got it now?

Why are they wasting money on painting the tracks and blade?
Cobb Knobbler (1 месяц назад)
Critter. The cost is negligible. In many cases the machines will sit for a time before purchase and put to work. And it just plain appeals to a customer. Deal with it. They aren't losing that much money. It's called a loss leader. It's about percieved value.
grumpybill (9 месяцев назад)
Critter87 not all paint will wear off, back of blade, inside of tracks, etc.
Critter87 (9 месяцев назад)
grumpybill why? What’s the point of painting surfaces that the paint will wear off from within the first hour of operation.
grumpybill (9 месяцев назад)
Critter87 not a waste at all

It didn’t look like to me any of these workers were really hustling. Maybe it was filmed that way but sure didn’t seem like anyone was in a hurry to get anything done.

Why would they be in a hurry? Have you EVER step foot into an assembly line?

' all caterpillars powers are uses alot of strong steels... dont have aluminum at all... aluminum caterpillar is better easily weight than heavy steel weight

I was going to let this die but your still pushing. Insult and bully you? I haven't even started, if you think that's being insulting you wouldn't last 5 minutes on any real job site I've been on. Say something stupid there and someone will immediately tell you your a fool. I'm not your Mommy or Daddy and I'm not the type to sugar coat the truth. Ego? No I simply stated my experience, what's yours? You still haven't "explained" a single thing to anyone. The problem here is you understand so little about how these machines are designed to work you have no idea how little you do understand. I was being nice and I don't ever use any comments I wouldn't say to a persons face. Except then I'd add industrial language. I strongly suspect engish isn't your primary and first language so up to now I've gone easy on you. But if you've got some detailed information or even Google links to support what your trying to say then post em. If you don't then anything FSAG's or myself have said is still valid.
bestamerica (8 месяцев назад)
hi F... thank... already reply to TP
bestamerica (8 месяцев назад)
hi TP... dont use 2 words - YOU / YOUR - on me... dont insult me bully words... be nice and respect... let explain about this cat power machine vehicle... remember that dont be ego selfie smart
Turning Point (8 месяцев назад)
lol, maybe not FSAG, or his Google link may have stalled on him and that`s why it`s still quiet. :-) But anyone coming up with that aluminum cat brain wave sure ain`t the sharpest knife in the drawer. Do these guys think real operators don`t watch videos like this because were all curious and interested about how the machines are made that we run. There`s some really knowledable people on some of theses comments sections, but my gawd theres a few others not quite up to walking and chewing bubble gum at the same time. I am gonna repeat his idea to every operator I know when a good chuckel is needed.
Turning Point (8 месяцев назад)
2 words, think I can do better than that. So do tell bestamerica, how about you èxplain this cat power machine to me hmmmm. Only one problem, what a whole lot of fools on youtube tend to forget is they have no idea just what the person there addressing there comments to has for experience. And you picked the wrong guy. I`ve been in the mining, logging, construction industry for over 40 years, have run cats from little JD bucket machines to D-11s, road graders to 16g size, 5500 hitachi hydraulic shovels, electric rope shovels from P & H 1900s - 2800s, hoes to 750 size, 992 cat loaders, haul trucks from tandem dump truck to 300 tonners, have a class 1 cdl with air endorsement, sand trucks, water trucks, road packers etc. So why don`t you go ahead and èxplain these cats to me huh.I`d love to hear it. Don`t shoot your face off about something you know less than zero about. An aluminum cat, lol that`s priceless. I gave you logic about why that aluminum isn`t used and you should have just paid attention and then used your 2 brain cells about why it can`t work but your still pushing it.

We have the perfect patented quick attach system for dozer blades that would turn the single use dozer into a multi-use machine. Cat? How do I introduce this product for implementation? https://www.youtube.com/user/swhitenight1
