People are talking about new tools in the process called trunnions. What do they do?

They speed the manufacturing process, increasing flexibility and future-proofing the plant for when it might make even more models.

In essence, a trunnion is a huge, five-sided rotating jig that presents parts to a robot, instead of vice versa. When everything’s working to capacity, we’ll make a car every 78 seconds.
