I can't imagine how they produce plastics.... must have been great to watch... but like Barbara says: I guess they have to work hard to make some money.....

Not plastics but pieces of elastic (elastiekjes) Anna-Maria. They get rubber tubes from elsewhere (presumably via Yangon) and with these machines the tubes are cut into pieces.
