How Apple Makes the Mac Pro

Greg Koenig (of LumaLabs) on the new Mac Pro manufacturing process:

What makes Apple fascinating is not that they are using some wiz-bang alien technologies to make things – even here in Portland, Oregon, all the technologies Apple shows in this video are in-practice across numerous local factories. What makes Apple unique is that they perform their manufacturing with remarkable precision and on a scale that is simply astonishing, using techniques typically reserved for the aerospace or medical device industries.

Go watch the video embedded above, then go read Greg’s post. What I really appreciate is that he covers off on the procedures; deep draw stamping, impact extrusion, CNC milling, polishing, anodizing & much more.

It’s really cool to read about all the little touches in designing & manufacturing a precise, high-volume product like this.
