Flying Alien Spacecraft

We fired up our new Corr-Vac packaging machine last week. After hooking up the compressed air, electricity, and nitrogen, we circled the machine a few times and couldn't help feeling like we were in a sci-fi movie evaluating an alien visitor. Tubes connecting various parts... sounds of life-like inhaling and exhaling... and an eerily human shape combine to give the machine an other-worldly presence. We'll brainstorm on names.

Our new employee is no friend of lingering oxygen in packaging. We dialed in sequence of vacuum/nitrogen infusion to displace any stubborn oxygen/vacuum again/nitrogen again/then a final vacuum. The dude is fast and thorough. I doubt I'll be able to keep up with him.
