Punny Factory Pinball Machine
Oh no, there’s been an explosion at the Punny Factory and all the Puns are loose! We need your help to gather up all of
the missing and broken Puns. Along the way you will have to collect all the nuts, bolts, gears and springs
that have been littered over the factory floor from the explosion. Help Casey get the Punny Factory up and running again!
For the back glass of all our pinball machines, we use a unique technique for printing on acrylic called reverse screen printing, (also known as silk screen or serigraphy). This allows our art to be printed on the backside of the acrylic, and then a white layer is printed on top of the art. This allows our art to really pop! We allow the ink to dry for ten to fifteen days in order to maintain the integrity and durability of the print. We also pay attention to the little details when it comes to back glass: prior to printing, the sides of the acrylic have been wet sanded and heated to give a smooth and clear finish. Strategic front handles that blend into the background are used in place of a bottom lifting rail. Overall, these finishing touches leave your back glass a work of art to envy by all players.
High End Wood Cabinets
Depending on the version, engraving or direct art is printed onto a hard thick Russian Baltic Birch. It’s then sealed with several clear coats or a black stained finish adding a unique look to one’s machine.
Engraved Editions: 12 units will feature engraved cabinets and back boxes on a hard thick Russian Baltic Birch clear coated. Engraving of game’s logo and gears on both sides of the cabinet and back box. Black wood ebony wood stain will be used allowing the wood grain to show through. Inside of the cabinet will have full graphics.
Full Interior Artwork
We wanted to go the extra mile… so not only do we do a direct-to-wood printing on cabinets and back-box artwork; we feature full-height interior artwork, adding to the full immersion of the theme and eliminating the need for side artwork blades.
Unique Playfield Wood
Pinball Adventures playfields are made from our very own Hard Canadian Maple known for its combination of strength and durability. We use the toughest and fastest-curing seal finish on all of our products, and include clear coat that has been sanded in-between each application, protecting your pinball playfield. We finish off with a wax that’s buffed between coats, adding even more beauty and protection to the playfield. With this new coating process based in thorough research and best industry practices, we’re sure our new pinball machine owners will be happy with their playfields durability.
Hydro Dipping Toys
Adding to our company’s attention to detail, all of Punny Factory playfield toys are hydro dipped. Hydro dipping, also known as water transfer printing, is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces. The resulting combinations may be considered decorative art or applied art. This process allows us to give our toys and playfields that factory exploding look. As an added bonus, this process ensures that each game is unique and different in its own way.
The Punny Factory is built with mostly in-house designed and manufactured parts. The control module uses a single IO board that runs on the newest edition Raspberry Pi computer, ensuring smooth and consistent gameplay. Our platform comprises of a Raspberry Pi 3 and a single electronic board (R-board) with through-hole components. The Raspberry Pi 3 runs the game software, interfacing with the machine through the R-board. All the direct switches are connected to the R-board and are scanned at a rate of a thousand times per second. The CPU responds to the solenoids in less than 3 milliseconds giving sharp feedback with no gameplay lag. The software is custom-built and the software stack has been designed from scratch, written in C++ guaranteeing the best performance. Essentially, this means we’re offering top-of-the-line service, game speeds, and more, making our platform the easy choice in comparison to our competition!
Inside the Factory
The playfield layout was created by Dave Sanders, known for his previous Full Throttle creation and much of the Alien design for Heighway Pinball. Punny Factory has a relatively-simple single-level layout with two flippers, a Vari-target, three drop targets, three pop bumpers, a kickback, an up-kicker and seventeen stand-up targets.
Sitting in the centre is the Punny Press – the machine which presses all the Puns back together. Underneath the molded Punny Press model is an up-kicker saucer which is guarded by a drop target.
The overall target is to press all fifty Puns, with your progress shown by a circle of inserts above the flippers. This process is great fun for that first time pinballer, and a real challenge for the experienced player!
For our machine’s accents, we apply a free-flowing, dry powder that is applied electrostatically and then cured under heat with ultraviolet light in order to give our games an easily color-coordinated look. We’ve chosen a Vibrant Silver Vain powder coating color to accent the Punny Factory’s metal and gears. Add in the Pinball Adventures own newly designed Apron, Logo Hinges, Logo Side Rails, Lockdown Bar and Legs, and you get one color coordinated game.
Optional: Smoke Machine
To spice up the fun factor, you can add a smoke machine to the Punny Factory. A tube from the smoke machine would expel the smoke through a 3D chimney on the top of the machine whenever a Punny is being pressed. This killer option is a unique feature that can elevate your customer’s user experience and fun-factor.
