Numbers matter in Season 3 of "Manufacturing Explorers," which premieres on September 28th on IMTS.com. This season promises an in-depth look at the ever-evolving world of manufacturing, and viewers will be captivated by the fascinating facts and figures encountered by the show's dynamic hosts, the father-son duo Max and Travis Egan, as they embark on thrilling journeys within the automotive industry.

In the first episode, they delve into the intricacies of automotive production, unveiling a staggering revelation - the Tesla Model Y's rear underbody section now comprises just two parts, a remarkable reduction from the Model 3's 70 components. This demonstrates the relentless pursuit of innovation and efficiency in modern manufacturing.

The second episode takes them to Magna Electronics, a hub of cutting-edge technology where millions of sensors are manufactured. These sensors play crucial roles in modern vehicles, contributing to features like cruise control, parking assist, object detection, and tailgate cameras. Max and Travis also explore Magna's latest innovation, the Toyota Tundra trailer back-up assist, and get an up-close look at the intricate process of producing printed circuit boards.

In their third adventure, Max and Travis venture to 6K Inc. in North Andover, Massachusetts, where they uncover a game-changing technology called the UniMelt® system. This revolutionary production-scale microwave plasma process synthesizes advanced materials for EV battery components. Operating at temperatures as high as 6,000°F, UniMelt® offers a green and sustainable alternative to traditional material sourcing, bypassing geopolitical risks and environmental harm.

Season 3 is not only a thrilling exploration of manufacturing but also a poignant farewell to Travis and Max. The journey began with Max as a young mechanical engineering undergraduate, guided by Travis into the world of manufacturing. After weathering a pandemic, earning two degrees, and embarking on ten transformative road trips with their camera crew, Max now follows his dream career as a lead analyst in the renewable energy sector.

"Manufacturing Explorers" Season 3 promises to educate, entertain, and inspire as it reveals the magic of manufacturing and the innovations shaping our world.
