iPhone Plant in Zhengzhou China Gets a Video Tour

A new report from a Chinese television network gives us a rare opportunity to see some of the main production facility for the iPhone.

Covering 5.6 square kilometers (2.2 square miles), the Foxconn plant in Zhengzhou, China employs 115,000 workers and produces 70 percent of all the iPhones for Apple.  If those numbers aren’t big enough for you, it appears that Foxconn will be expanding the facility in the near future.

In the video you get a peek at the motherboard facility area that stretches for 148 meters (485.5 feet) and produces over 10,000 units a day.  The video also moves into the camera assembly room where everyone goes through a refreshing air bath before entering to remove any dust particles from their clothes.

It is projected this one plant will produce 200 tons of shipping cargo per day this year.  Just this one plant, not all of the Foxconn plants … just this one.  That is a mind boggling amount of production.

The video is in Chinese, but it is still worth a look if you’re curious what goes into producing an iPhone.
