Upcoming MACHINES: HOW THEY WORK episode features Hoshizaki’s Flaker/Cubelet Ice Machine

F-1001MAJ-B700Peachtree City, GA (February 23, 2015) – Have you ever wondered what’s going on inside the machines you use every day? How does an escalator haul hundreds of people up a slope as steep as Mount Fuji?  How does an ice machine produce hundreds of pounds of ice a day in a busy restaurant? Using CGI animation, MACHINES: HOW THEY WORK dives deep inside ordinary machines to reveal their extraordinary inner workings. You’ll never look at ice machines the same way after MACHINES: HOW THEY WORK premieres on Thursday, March 3 at 10PM ET on the Science Channel.

Each episode of MACHINES: HOW THEY WORK explores the secret workings of three different machines of all shapes and sizes; from parking meters and coffee machines to paintball guns and floor scrubbers. Immersive footage shot inside the factories where these objects are built and tested, reveals their ingenious mechanics alongside the larger than life characters who design and construct them.

“Viewers are used to seeing how mega machines like airplanes and trains are built, but just as brilliantly designed are the unsung heroes of the modern world- lawnmowers, chainsaws and even the household blender employ complex mechanical ingenuity that we use all the time without a thought as to how they work so well,” said Neil Laird, Executive Producer of MACHINES: HOW THEY WORK. “This show is a celebration of those unseen innovators of the everyday.”
