Arc Trainer on the Science Channel

I recently received a press release from Cybex saying its Arc Trainer is going to be featured this week on the Science Channel show “How Its Made” at 9 p.m. EST on Friday, Oct. 9. Cybex said a TV crew visited its manufacturing plant in Owatonna, MN, and filmed the Arc Trainers as they were being manufactured. It sounds all high-tech—the press release said it will show “welding and assembly of tons of steel for the product's framework and the processes used with robotic weld cells, tube lasers and a state-of-the-art electrostatic powder coat paint system.” While I have no clue what “robotic weld cells” are, I do know the Arc Trainer recently got its 10th utility patent—fancy! I've never seen this show, but I may have to check it out.
