Ford Motor Company's Dearborn truck plant is back online.
The automaker stripped the plant to its bare bones to remake it for building an aluminum F-150.
The lighter truck will get significantly better fuel economy, as well as better hauling and towing capacity.
During a media tour of the new body shop, Chief Engineer Ron Ketelhut pointed out that some things are missing –sparks, for example, and a deafening wall of noise.
Instead of welding the body together, (noisy, dirty, and hot work), the robots use rivets.
