How Much Thermal Energy Gets Produced with a Hydraulic Press?

We've featured a lot of hydraulic press videos, but this one is definitely a change of pace. The minds at the Hydraulic Press Channel used a thermal camera in addition to their normal camera to document squishing steel objects in the press.

We knew the steel would get hot, but we didn't know it would get this hot. The first steel object gets over 122 degrees Fahrenheit immediately after being pressed.
