Meet the Anti-Decline Company Building to Keep the Solar System Free
Hi, I love your analyses, but here I don’t really understand why the perception that only if the US wins “Space Race ll” will there be peace? What do you mean that the solar system will be free? Free by who? And if the US wins this race, then won’t they own space and contradict the concept of “free”?
Sorry, but that picture of what the majority of machine shops look like is a joke. That is not accurate and that is problem with those who claim to be experts and are the best of the best. Being good at what you do doesn't mean you worry about a title. The best way to be the best is to just be yourself and let the work you do show you know how to do it. The greatest of musicians just let their instrument reflect their hard work and determination to master it. They let their creativity and soul come out in their playing. A good machinist does the same taking their experience and knowledge and bringing all of the things together to make the best part possible. Yes there is plenty that can be automated, but Hardrian keep making claims that beat the laws of Physics and that is what the investors want to hear, but in the background there is no way to beat them. Certain things will take what they take and no one wants to hear any good music butchered by playing it 10X faster because someone wants it done that way. The mastery of the time it takes and the effort it takes to play it correctly is appreciated by those who understand it. No different in the correct Manufacturing process. To take 7200lb of material down to 450lb still takes what it takes. The stress and movement of the material will still have to be taken into account. The real issue starts well before the manufacturing of part. It starts with the lack of understanding manufacturability as the design level that is not being taught at the universities. This is why your picture is a joke to anyone who truly understands and is doing precision manufacturing. It is really insulting because it shows the arrogance that the claim this article was making doesn't exist with this group is really at its core.
Are they making their parts for free? The fact there is an even mention about how they are going to build it in such a way that no other company will poach their people screams all about the money and not about the success of American Manufacturing. Sharing knowledge and teaching others is the true path to helping American Manufacturing. This article reminds me of the ones we saw when Elon Musk was first building SpaceX. Where has that information been shared and given to help others? Nowhere and why there is such a high turn over at his companies. Gain what you can from the numbers through brain drain then on the next group of starry eyed gradates. People see the light that life live doing meaningful things it more important than being pimped out for someone's way to become the next Billionaire.
Hadrian has clearly defined the serious problem with current manufacturing but this good vs evil story they paint covers up the real issue, that being they cannot explain what their core technology, ip, or scaling looks like.
What a joke. Everyone thinks machining is easy. Does the Chick-fil-a person know when to change their inserts before it breaks? Does the homemade ERP Flow system tells you when the material warp? Oh wait, their best engineers and scientist have everything figured out how to predict and fix everything. And by the way, the mom and pop shops are the ones actually building America... it's called small businesses, not corporate. Corporation gets all the tax write off, free investors money but it's the mom and pop shops that work hard and are actually building the economy. Anybody can build buildings with free money, but you can't build quality with no experience and no knowledge. Always love when people that have never worked in a machine shop always say, just push the green button and magically parts are done. What a joke. I would prefer to use Xometry at least they send parts to qualified mom and pop shops.
Isn't this Industry4.0 and MES (Manufacturing Execution System) software? Or am I missing something?
In Italy/Europe we have improved these technologies in the last two decades, any good medium/big modern industry implements this. We have a lot of software companies that develop MES systems and integrate them with industrial plants.
