Advanced production processes

Steel welding

Steel welding

Our products are characterised by the highest quality of welds and a precise finish, which guarantees safe use and durability of our playground equipment. A team of highly-qualified welders, supported by cutting-edge welding robots, ensures high-quality connections of the steel components.

Welding of stainless-steel tubes

The entire production process of stainless-steel tube slides is performed by highly-qualified Vinci Play employees. They design the tubes, then roll them with high precision, match all the elements of the device, and, finally, connect the components using durable and secure welds. At Vinci Play, we implement high-quality AISI 304 and AISI 316 stainless steel.

Welding of stainless-steel tubes
Steel cutting, bending and shot blasting

Steel cutting, bending and shot blasting

We prepare steel with great care to obtain components shaped exactly in accordance with the equipment design requirements. The steel is cut with high precision using 2D and 3D lasers, then it is bent using modern CNC benders and, finally, it is shot blasted to achieve the desired surface smoothness and to prepare the metal elements for painting or galvanising.

Galvanisation

We always galvanise steel components before applying powder paint. Galvanisation offers effective protection of the metal surface against corrosion caused by atmospheric conditions. We use two types of galvanisation: powder and hot dip. We store metal components galvanised with the help of both techniques, as this allows us to swiftly process orders of our customers.

Galvanisation
Abrasive treatment (shot blasting)

Abrasive treatment (shot blasting)

The steel used to manufacture the Vinci Play playground equipment is subjected to a shot-blasting cleaning process which allows us to obtain the proper surface, as well as even welds and edges. This ensures better paint adhesion, thus making the product even safer, more durable and even more aesthetically pleasing. We use professional shot-blasting chambers to process elements of different sizes. For hot-dip galvanised steel, we use electro-corundum shot blasting, and in the case of carbon steel, we employ shot blasting using broken cast steel shot.

Powder coating

Our products are aesthetically pleasing and are available in a wider range of colours thanks to the modern powder coating line. We use the highest-quality, child-safe paints which hold the QUALICOAT certificate. Our powder coating process complies with strict standards for the temperature of paint heating, coating thickness and adhesion of the paint to steel elements.

Powder coating
Processing ropes

Processing ropes

We use the highest quality 16mm-thick steel ropes with polypropylene or nylon braiding for the manufacturing of climbing equipment and components, as well as for bridges and interlaces. We link them with durable fasteners made of plastic, stainless steel or aluminium. The rope elements are dimensioned, cut to the appropriate length, and then connected using hydraulic presses with a pressure of 150 tons.

CNC

We purchase the HDPE and HPL sheets that we use for the production of our equipment from leading manufacturers around the world. This ensures that we use products of the highest-quality. The plates are machined using CNC milling plotters which guarantee precise cutting and milling. The desired shapes and millings – compatible with even the most complicated design requirements – are characterised by their high aesthetic and educational values and at the same time meet the highest standards of safe use.

CNC
Wood cutting

Wood cutting

CNC saws and industrial robots precisely cut and machine the wood used for the production of wooden parts of our playground equipment. Chamfering of the wood removes any sharp edges, and four-sided surface sanding prepares the wood for the impregnation process. The high quality of wooden elements guarantees the safety of the equipment, and the automation of the process ensures short manufacturing time and fast order realization.

Wood painting

For the production of our wooden equipment, we use pine wood which has been glued together in plies under pressure. The process of machining square timbers, which entails sanding, impregnation, painting, drying and hardening, takes place on a fully automated production line. The wood undergoes a multi-stage protection process, which guarantees long-term durability of the wooden parts of our equipment and make them resistant to weather conditions.
