PETKUS on radio and television: accompanying MDR report on the exhibition


PETKUS will be part of the exhibition "Experience Industrial Culture – Innovative Thuringia since 1800". The exhibition takes place from 06.06 to 09.09.2018 in the Shedhalle in Pößneck and is to present the traditions of the industrial culture of Thuringia. Accompanying the exhibition, the MDR THÜRINGEN Journal will report about PETKUS on 31st of July at 19 o’clock. PETKUS will also be part of the MDR radio programme "Fazit" on 31st of July at 18 o’clock.

Therefore recently, editors and a camera team were guests at the factory and at the technical centre of PETKUS. Overall, five different exhibition tours are available in the "Experience Industrial Culture”. The main topic is "energy", which acts as kind of a linking element of the individ ual topics. Referring to the potential of "Industry 4.0", the Thuringian perspectives of the 21st century are illustrated - in comparison to production methods during the industrialisation of the 18th century. PETKUS is represented by a traditional Röber winnowing machine as well as the high-tech OS900i (fair Dummy), with exhibits of Zeiss Vision Care and Schott AG next door.
