With over two million Cybertrucks ready for production, would that strain the supply of nickel metal. We might have a make the American five cent piece out of steel just like in World War Two?

Let me get this straight. Steel Dynamics will be supplying Tesla with flat cold roll stainless steel? And Tesla will be stamping the steel roll in Cybertruck chassis parts?

Not stamping, folding. Origami style.


Just wait until you see Tesla’s stainless steel crane.

Everyone is getting confused. We are thinking that Steel Dynamics will be doing the Gigapress and stamping?

Gigapress creates the front and rear assemblies which the drive trains, motors, and wheels mount to and which. These are made of aluminum. Has little to nothing to do with Steel Dynamics.

SD is producing rolls or sheets of steel for Tesla.

Tesla will take the stainless from SD, straighten it, and use some sort of process to fold it. Usually this is done with a brake.

Hope this helps un-confuse things a bit.

😊Thank you for clearing that up. The media likes to talk above our heads to show off.

Knowledge is power! Much appreciated!
You're welcome, this is what I believe - I didn't mean to state my assumptions so heavily. But, seeing as the extent of tooling Tesla has - and SD has no history fabricating car parts as far as I can tell.. Makes sense.

After some weird round and round where SD said they weren’t supplying Tesla “but would love to”, Tesla says they are indeed using Steel Dynamics.
