Here is an interesting video (2001 but some parts seem older and in German) from Mayser (see below). I am not sure if they still have this department in Lindenberg (they moved production to Slovakia in 2011) but it's interesting to see the process plus making metal machine forms (this is for women's hats). Wood Blocks used by machines had to made to a different standard. Now most Felt Hats are machined formed. I know someone that can tell me more about the current situation.

Stetson Excellent "Woodlawn" made by Mayser Ulm under license, 58cm, Triple Stitch Over Welt, probably late 1950s. Notice the crease at the front and top of the crown (second photo). This style hat was popular in Germany in the late 1950s and worn without side dents.
