Detailed Explanation of the Customized Soccer Ball Production of 16 Processes

Soccer ball production is divided into machine stitching, hand stitching, and seamless pressing. Machine stitching is the lowest price, hand stitching is high-end, and seamless pressing is only done by a few brands. There are two layers: inner bladder and outer skin. The specific production process is as follows:

1. Laminating

Laminating is the first process in the production of customized soccer balls, and it is also a more important process. The fitting process is completed by modern professional equipment to ensure that the material of the product has a best start.

2. Leather cutting

Leather cutting is the process of tailoring the material of the product. It is a very important step in the production of good quality soccer ball. Quality inspectors have been involved in the leather cutting process and supervised to ensure that the cut leather is accurate. At the same time, the leather trimmers have rich experience and multiple guarantees to ensure the best material of the product.

3. Leather cutting and inspection

In order to ensure the best quality of product materials, a process is also added to the production: leather cutting and inspection. From the supervision of the leather cutting process to the quality inspection after the leather cutting is completed, each production process will be the most meticulous, because we pursue the highest quality and the best quality.

4. Cutting and warehousing

Dry the cut leather, collect it, and check the quality one by one again. Only after it is qualified can it be put into the warehouse.

5. Leather printing

After soccer ball leather is printed, a variety of different patterns and colors of leather will come out.

6. Quality inspection and warehousing after printing

After printing, quality inspection must be done to ensure that all printed leather materials are qualified. Then it is  stored in warehouse.

7. Hand sewing

Sew 18 pieces into a new ball by hand. The general soccer ball is composed of 32 pentagons, and this customized soccer ball is composed of 18 pieces. There are fewer pieces, there are fewer splicing points and splicing lines, so there is less friction surface during exercise, and less resistance. The trajectory is more stable and accurate, the sphere shape is rounder, the elasticity is higher, and the process requirements are higher.

8. Closing

Closing is a skill-testing task, and the fine craftsmanship has a great influence on product quality. In the process of closing the product, employees are given plenty of time to make every good quality soccer ball.

9. Quality inspection

Quality inspection is never a missing step. To produce a good product, quality inspection is essential.

10. Inflating and printing

With inflating and printing, the basic shape of a soccer ball forms.

11. Cleaning and weighing of the ball

Clean up the dust or residual latex, and then weigh it to ensure that each customized soccer ball is kept at a certain weight.

12. Inflating and printing

After 24 hours, recheck the appearance, air pressure and weight of the ball.

13. Test gas

After a new ball is made, the new ball must be inflated for a test.

14. 72-hour air inspection

The ball will be placed on a shelf and kept in the factory for 72 hours. The second inspection will be carried out after 72 hours. This is to eliminate all possible human factors to ensure that the final products are all good quality soccer balls.

15. Quality inspection, such as circumference measurement.

After the air test, the soccer ball must undergo a comprehensive quality inspection before it can be packaged, such as measuring the circumference of the sphere. The goal of the ball for the match is accurate to 690mm, and the ball between 685mm and 695mm is recognized.

16. Packaging

The customized soccer ball package is completed.
