VIDEO: How we mill our racket handles

Behind the scenes

How we mill the handles for our table tennis blades

A large part of our production is done by hand – but real HiTec is used for the racket grips.

In this video, we show you how we mill the racket handles for our table tennis blades and take you on a ride with our CNC milling machine.

We are often asked why we don’t also make the handles by hand. Quite simply because it really is all about precision.
We fiddled with our handle shapes for a long time – taking off 1 mm here and adding 2/10 mm there – until the handles were perfectly shaped in our opinion. And because half a millimeter can make a big difference, the whole thing has to be reproducible – and that simply cannot be done by hand. After all, we want each of our table tennis blades to fit perfectly in the hand and for our customers to get an equally perfect grip, even if they order a second table tennis bat years later.

Have fun driving our milling machine

P.S. A little warning – the video is a little long. But that’s how long it takes to mill out a pair of handle scales!
