CRS - Endoskeletons
T3 deleted scene
The first pic is in the movie, but shows you the area where all these scenes could take place.
The second and third pic are official promotional pics, with an Endoskeleton not seen in the movie. The following pics are from the same Endoskeleton, and these screenshots have been taken from the HBO Special about Terminator 3. It shows a small bit of an Endoskeleton being constructed by some large machine...
...and this large machine can be seen very clearly on pictures from Lenzkes Clamping Tools, the company that made the whole thing. The very last pic shows also T-1 Units, which are more detailed in the next deleted scene.
I think the Sgt. Candy video was longer, and that they cut some scenes. The novel describes a longer version of the promotional CRS video, in which more footage of the Endoskeletons and T-1 Units is displayed.
Lenzkes Clamping Tools reports they had to make tools for Terminator 3:
Only the modernistic clamping force of Lenzkes Clamping Tools can hold down Terminator 3.
The clamps holding down the Terminator are sold by Lenzkes Clamping Tools, and made in Ludenscheid, Germany, by its parent Lenzkes Spanntechnik GmbH.
“They’re holding a torso, one robotic head, an arm, a leg -– I felt as if we are working for a medical company,” quipped a source from Lenzkes Clamping Tools an interview at NPE.
The clamping system with the sleek look can be made in sizes up to a clamping force of 18,000 foot pounds and feature an easy release system using a torque wrench. The parts are aluminium or hardened steel and “ are not cast, but forged,” he noted.
The placement was not part of the company’s marketing plan, but rather an opportunity that arose from a chance meeting at a trade show in Anaheim, back in February 2002.
Two men walked in, looked over the product, and said they were interested in using the clamps on the Terminator set.
Both were engineers in the decorating sets and said, “We’ve never seen anything like this — it is really modern and the modernistic tool of the future,”
Within a week we had a request for trial parts. Eventually we shipped a pallet of the clamps to Hollywood.
“With lean manufacturing, quick release systems are changing companies. Anything that makes machines faster or the production of a person higher are sought after,” said Brocher. He said ease of use can cut the time of a mould change by up to forty minutes, but the average savings is 20-30 minutes.
Oh, and about that movie: The film crew has returned most of the clamps, but kept a few in case Arnold Schwarzenegger decides to do Terminator 4.
The official T3 novel mentions this part from the promotional Sgt. Candy video:
The video image switched to a chart that showed the evolution of robotics from the first primitive factory machines to the T-1's, to the skeletal Terminators, and finally to cybernetic figures in full battle armor and infiltration coverings.
