Kiteboard Production

Kiteboards made in Germany
Before the production can begin, office work is necessary. Starting with the selection of raw materials at first, we put great emphasis on the durability of the material. We prefer purchasing in the region and so we continue our environmental concept of a green production.

We always use water-based lacquers and if possible recyclable materials. Top priority
always remains quality and price, so that our final product remains affordable.

Joinery


In our own joinery we manufacture all wooden products ourselves. Just this way we can ensure that only appropriate wood is used.


Wooden Core


We always have a large selection of already prefabricated wooden cores in stock, so the cutting on the final size can be done quickly.

Wood Core with Inserts


When the wood core is finished, its V2a inserts are put in. The placement is precisely by means of a CNC insert milling.

Sidewall


To ensure that our boards fulfill a long lifetime, we use an ultra impact-resitant mixture of GRP, carbon and epoxy which is poured into.

Topsheets


To guarantee color fastness, we directly print all top sheets in our design department. For this purpose, we apply according to the material a specially developed color management.

Sublimation


With our fully automatic sublimation press the ink is directly printed into our newly developed CORETEX 9000 laminate within 90 seconds. The resulting sheets are cooled down and permanently bonded to the wood core by using a press.

Board Construction


Many different, matching materials result in a well-functioning board. Depending on the use and price, the materials and manufacturing processes vary. In addition to the sandwich boards, we also offer the more affordable version in terms of our developed RUGGED CORE.

Laminating


This process step requires a lot of fine motor skills and sensitivity. First, the two-component adhesive is mixed down to the last gram and evenly applied on the wood core. So that the laminate bonds better, small waves are “drawn” into the applied adhesive. Now the so-called sheet is precisely fixed on both sides.

Press


During the pressing process, all materials are joined together under heat and pressure, and the board gets its final shape. Due to the different setting of screws, each board gets its individual camber. Depending on the board concept, the components of time and heat also vary in addition to the materials.

Milling / Final Shape


In the end the prefabricated board gets its shape. With both of our CNC-controlled high-end milling machines the boards are being sucked and in a manner of speaking cut out” with millimeter precision.

Final Check


Before the boards get into delivery, the final check is still to come. Besides the optics, the workmanship is carefully examined. Only proper boards are placed on the market.

The prints are carefully fixed on the laminate and bonded or rather sublimed in the sublimation press under enormous heat and pressure. This process is called direct printing method. The final product is extremely impact- and scratch-resistant and will not lose its color intensity, even in total UV exposure.

Trans Kiteboard Production - Quality made in Germany During lamination, it is a matter of a very precise and conscientious workmanship. Accurate mixture ratio of the adhesive and the specific order decide on the later outcome.
At the so-called sandwich method, all parts are layered and therefore bonded.

Then the prepared sandwich is placed in the press. Using heat and pressure, the desired camber and shape is generated.

With the latest CNC milling the boards get their final shape. By using suction technology, the boards cannot slip and we achieve a precise final result.
