Summer 2014 Ski Crafting

August 09, 2014

This summer has been an exciting one! We have brought in some new equipment, namely a dual head CNT Motion CNC mill/router that we have have custom tooled for producing ski cores with the highest precision. Another change has been bringing topsheet printing 100% in-house, we have gone about this process in a somewhat slow manner to ensure we are putting out a top-notch product, not just something we are just getting into. The challenges of keeping print heads unclogged, color management (sublimation printing/pressing really skews them), and correct heat and temperatures for different materials have kept us busy for quite a while, but the result was 100% worth it!
