Any information on manufacturing spark plugs?

Hi guys, I was just browsing Flickr and happened to come across this series of photos of a spark plug factory in China. I'm curious if there are any good technical books on spark plug manufacturing? I couldn't find any in my search. I was thinking of visiting a spark plug plant, but I don't know of any in the US other than the AC Delco plant that was torn down last year. Does anyone have a book or photographic essay of how spark plugs are manufactured, or maybe have a friend who was an assembly line engineer who could share how they are made?

First link that came up when I searched for "spark plug manufacturing".
http://www.madehow.com/Volume-1/Spark-Plug.html

There was a sequence done for the television series "how its made" that shows the entire process from beginning to end.

Here's the link to the video.
