    Not exactly sure what the endgame here is, but this one has 10 pressing arms, instead of the measly 9 for the pineapple.

    Hail Canookia!

    Looks to me like he may be testing the seam fold for a spot weld after forming. Notice the release of the first clamp then the tenth to fold over the seam in the corner (maybe .188 overlap). It also looks as if he's trying to figure out placement of the sheet metal for the seam flap in the beginning (:01).

    The more I look at these the more I wonder how the dies and clamp heads are cut. Wonder if they are cut with some fret/scroll saw type device or possibly some EDM process from a large piece of stock to get the match for the bend relief, then just grind the spacing relief for the clamp heads. Tried to do a search but Google thinks I want a set of cutters to buy. Finally found this engravers blog for automation bakeries and their cookie line of Roll Molds.

    These appear to be from CookieCutter...unfortunately MS was involved here. Family business in KC MO since 93.
