Overview

This series follows the technology used to make products we regularly come in contact with.
This edition of the series of programs explaining the technology used to produce items that are familiar in our daily life features 'Elevators'. An elevator incorporates various mechanisms to ensure that passengers and freight are carried safely. The four rails it runs on must be straight and distortion-free. The 'car' people ride in is an assembly of components made from large steel plates. The program introduces the rarely seen production process of electronic devices, such as the 'control panel' and the 'operation panel'.
