How Are Jigsaw Puzzle Made

how are jigsaw puzzles made

A jigsaw puzzle is a flat puzzle that requires the assembly of oddly shaped interlocking and exact fit pieces. Typically, every single piece has a part of a picture; when assembled perfectly, the jigsaw puzzle produces a complete beautiful picture.

 

Jigsaw puzzle

 

Most modern jigsaw puzzles are made of thick paperboard since they are more economical and eco-friendly than the original old wooden jigsaw models. An artistic painting or any other two-dimensional artwork is glued onto the thick cardboard before dying punching. This board is then fed into a die punching hydraulic press. The press forces a set of hardened sharp steel blades of any desired shape through the thick board until it is fully and neatly cut. This procedure is very time-consuming and dangerous. However, the forces involved are tremendously high, and a typical 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle requires a press that can generate upwards of 750 tons of mechanical force to push the steel blades of the puzzle die through the board. A puzzle die is a flat board, often made from rich plywood, with slots cut in the same shape as the blades used in it. These blades are set into the slots and covered in a compressible and cushion material, typically specialized rubber, which eject the cut puzzle pieces neatly.

Jigsaw Puzzle Scattering Machine

 

Next, the puzzles are forwarded to a conveyor, which takes the cut puzzle pieces on a short trip to the puzzle scattering machine.

The puzzle scattering machine has blades in it that rotate at incredible speeds to rip apart the joint puzzle. The scattered pieces are collected in a small bag that contains all the scattered pieces. 

The packed bag is put into the puzzle box, which is already made and kept to pack with its allies accessories like sorting trays, posters, box stands, and many other goodies.

After all the quality check is complete

At last, the boxes are shrink-wrapped cleanly to make them moisture-free and shipped in corrugated boxes to your doorsteps.
