How Ravensburger Puzzles Are Made
Ravensburger follows a watertight seventeen-step process for designing and developing their puzzles to the high standards that they are known for.
Puzzle editors start by looking for the ideal puzzle image. Several factors, in addition to the picture's topic, determine whether it is selected. These include the sharpness and depth of the picture, the colour brightness, the contrast, and the level of detail in the image.
Once the ideal image has been selected, a few adjustments are required to make it the ideal puzzle image. The most frequent changes are to the contrast and colours. These modifications not only provide a visually pleasing image, but also one that is simple to solve.
Following image editing, the manufacturing process starts. The puzzle image will then be printed using the offset printing method. Ravensburger produces their own special linen-embossed paper, which is used to print all of their puzzles. This material helps to reduce light reflections and glare on your puzzle.
Quality control checks the puzzle after the initial print runs to see if any alterations are required before mass production. Quality control makes sure that colours are adjusted and all errors in the puzzle are fixed if the initial print run exhibits any indications of wrong colours or features in the picture.
For Ravensburger boxes, the same procedure is applied. The boxes are printed first. Prior to authorising the box for mass production, quality control inspects the box's top and bottom and makes any required modifications.
The printed puzzle image is laminated onto the cardboard at the following stage in the manufacturing process. Specially made for Ravensburger, their blue cardboard provides a thicker and more sturdy puzzle experience. Specialists utilise enormous press roll machines that glue everything together using water-based, non-toxic adhesive to join the paper sheet and the cardboard.
Ravensburger engineers will ultimately use the templates they produce to help them make the steel punching tools to cut puzzles into the required number of pieces. It takes an average of 160 hours to hand-draw each puzzle template. This guarantees that each puzzle piece is distinct.
Engineers created the punching tool out of razor-sharp steel bands using the hand-drawn puzzle template as a model. The engineers just use their hands and a hammer to bend the steel bands while utilising a fixed wooden plate. A 1000-piece puzzle tool takes around 210 hours to construct.
When the punching tool is prepared, one of Ravensburger’s punching machines is used to install it. A technician then places the cardboard picture into the press machine, which uses the pressure of several hundred tonnes to cut the image. They now have a puzzle with separate parts when the cut is finished.
Following the initial cut, quality control does the second set of inspections to check for precise cuts, any portions that are still adhered to the punching tool, or any pieces that are still attached together. Quality control checks are conducted repeatedly until the puzzle is faultless.
Automated equipment separates and directs the individual parts of the chopped puzzle into a bag as it travels down the conveyor. After being heat sealed, the bag is prepared to go into the box.
Now that the printed box pictures are ready, Ravensburger may laminate them onto the cardboard boxes. The box top and bottom are first folded by a machine, which then laminates the box image to the folded sides. Each puzzle bag is manually inserted into the bottom of the box.
Then a worker ensures that every bag that was placed is pushed down and distributed equally inside the box. The box tops will fit neatly and uneven packing will be prevented thanks to this.
A unique device places the box top over the box bottom that contains the puzzle bag to seal the box. Shrink wrapping is done after the package has been sealed. As a result, the box is kept safe throughout shipping and a genuine, perfect Ravensburger puzzle is sent.
The puzzles are then put on pallets and stored in one of our fully automated high-bay warehouses following one final quality check at the conveyor belt. The final puzzles will go from Ravensburg to shops and customers all around the world.
