It's some sort of press with a heavy wheel that spins back and forth and
presses on the work using a heavy screw.

No audio needed, just watch about 10 seconds

What's the history of these, any is it something uncommon in the US?

I'd call it a "rotary inertia" or "worm gear inertia" press and it
is not common in North America from what I've seen.
