One of the most widely watched international cable TV channels, the Discovery Channel, has published a new documentary series called “Machines, how they work”. The series explains the inner workings of common mechanical objects - revealing both how they work and how they are made.

One of the featured machines is an escalator, more specifically a KONE escalator. The episode shows the process behind how we manufacture an escalator and also showcases the work of amazing employees at KONE US Coal Valley plant.

The series was filmed at KONE Coal Valley plant and the London subway during spring 2016. As a result of great collaboration with the Discovery Channel, including a 3D animation revealing the inner workings of escalators, the film has now been published for millions of viewers worldwide. Discovery Channel and Discovery Science have altogether over 450 million subscribers making the film one of KONE’s biggest PR events.
