Video of Chinese Marble Making Factory

Sino Sales in China produced this video of their marble making factory, which features an incredible shot of an array of machines making marbles in tandem from what must be multiple kilns or some very large kilns.

The video clearly shows the blade mechanism shearing the molten glass stream at rapid and precise intervals, resulting in a small "gob" of glass that drops into the rollers that shape it into a round marble.
