That's a bit harsh, I hadn't seen this before and thought it was really interesting.

Seriously, I don't get why some people get all bent out of shape when people bump old topics. *Oh my goodness, someone made a comment on an old thread! OMG!* It's silly...

Tin plated steel, eh? And it looks like they use magnetics rather extensively to hold cans on the belts. I wonder how different an Al can production line looks!

That's awesome! Also the way they wrapped up the cans in tape or plastic or whatever (at around 1:05) is awesome!
