    I don’t know about working at the U.S. Mint, but the workers at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP), where our paper currency is made, must have it easy, with nothing too demanding.

    I say that, because I took a tour, and a guy had a sign in his work area that said, “I make more money in a day, than you make in your lifetime!” 😂

    Yes corect answer it is change the Dies. The average live of a die it is 50 minutes and those technicians has maximum 3 minute to change. In today days the change of the Die is done as holl assembly and an tecnician has in charge in average 6 to 8 presses. So him has 12 to 24 minutes to move from line to line.

    Fast die change. The die change procedure can be performed in three minutes. The gear unit and dial feed plate are moved as a complete unit for the changeover; the feed drum is moved separately. The coining pressure can be adjusted manually or automatically using the ABI-Plus control when the machine is running. The machines are equipped with an inching drive so that the punch setting can be checked following a change

    Thanks for participating.

    I’ve stood on a production line at the Philadelphia Mint with the presses running and I’ve seen what they have to do.
