    Latest type of excavator digging clay for bricks. Clay is loaded into wagons which transport it to a mill. There is a rope line which pulls the loaded wagons into the mill and empty wagons back to be filled again. Clay is placed onto conveyor belt where the stones are removed. Clay is mixed, broken up into lumps and moulded and cut into bricks. Bricks are transported into large walk-in stoves and 'baked' to get finished product.
