Assembling 100.000 switches per day

u/Muilkinginuk posted a video of the assembly line at TTC(?) manufacturing 100 thousand switches per day.

Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

The video itself looks like recorded with a potato but it's interesting anyway:

u/Muilkinginuk claims he's working directly with TTC and will post more interesting switch content in the future.

This post gained a lot of attention on Reddit and one frequent question was: why does the machine press the switch a few times?

According to Muilkinginuk, the machine is measuring continuity and resistance.
