Saturday is the last official day of Pinball Expo, although the tournaments continue into Sunday.

We are back in the Seminars Hall for a full day of talks. The first seminar was by Mirco Stefan from Mirco Playfields.

Mirco StefanHe talked about how he first got into making fully-licensed pinball playfields, with the first being Attack from Mars.  That router was pretty basic requiring manaul changing of the cutting tool, so it wasn’t long before he expanded and developed his own multi-tool router.

Now he has a fully-robotic system doing everything from playfield cutting, insert placement and gluing, direct digital printing and clearcoating.

He said they have a visual robot for the inserts which can sort through an assortment of inserts, detect the colour and shape of them and sort them so they can be inserted into the appropriate holes.

He said they have a new digital printer which can print onto all kinds of different materials using the same printing method to ensure consistency of quality and colour.

We’ll be back with live updates throughout the day along with recordings of the seminars.
