How Its Made – 1245 Frying Pans

frying pans were first used by the ancient Greeks and Romans over 2,000 years ago these wide and shallow pans can be used to saute sear or fry food water release from the food during cooking creates that sizzling sound the shape of the pan allows steam to dissipate giving food a crispy finish a good nonstick frying pan is a must in the kitchen a frying pan can be made of any heat conductive metal in this case aluminum alloy ingots they melt the ingots a robotic ladle scoops up molten aluminum to be used for casting they use this two-part dye to transform liquid aluminum into a frying pan the robotic ladle pours the aluminum into the dye through a cylindrical port [Music] this high-pressure casting produces a very precise shape after about a minute an operator takes it out they cut off the excess using a computerized tool the table moves as the tool cuts the edge of the pan to specifications [Music] a worker sands the edges and rounds the rim of the pan a little more they cast pans in several sizes and thicknesses an employee keeps a detailed inventory of the pans next they put the pans in a sandblasting chamber the sandblaster cleans off oil and residue it also Ruffins up the surface of the pans to prepare them for coating an employee scrubs off the sand using an abrasive pad next the pans receive their ceramic coating each pan spins on a pod as the plasma flame melts three different powders onto it the coating protects the pan from corrosion an employee scrubs each pan with an abrasive pad to remove the residue this time the frying pans spin slowly as torches heat them to approximately 175 degrees this preheat preps the pans for the final coatings they prepare up to five proprietary coating formulations for each frying pan model each one contains dozens of chemicals and thousands of tiny diamond particles the diamonds increase their ability in heat conductivity they also make food less likely to stick to the surface of the pan the final coating contains a nonstick chemical known as PTFE they spray the different coatings onto the surface the spinning ensures even coverage as the coatings adhere to the hot pans now a primer is applied it allows the final nonstick coating to bond to the frying pan [Music] at the end of the line an employee inspects the finish and sprays a little more of the nonstick formula onto the handle fitting then the frying pans go through a furnace to bake the coatings onto the pans an employee checks the finish for bubbles scratches or color inconsistencies once the pans have cooled a robot transfers them to a lathe the lathe spins the pan is a tool shaves off a thin layer of aluminum this leaves a clean level surface on the bottom of the fan a suctioning robot moves the frying pan to the next station where a worker attaches a handle to the pan an automatic screw driver secures a technician he’s one of the frying pans on a cooktop as a mechanical arm rubs the pan thousands of times with a coarse piece of sandpaper there are no scratches so the entire batch of pans is approved thousands of nonstick frying pans are ready to leave the factory and cook up a tasty meal

    Switzerland – last country, where 50% of the manufacturing is done by humans and 50% by robots, meanwhile in other countries robots do 90% of the job.
