Introduction

 

Get ready for a strike in the evolution of bowling! String pinsetters are a revolutionary technology that's changing the game. But what exactly are they, and how do they work?  

This blog post from Flying, a leading bowling equipment provider, dives deep into the world of string pinsetters.

 

What is a Bowling String Pinsetter?

 

Unlike traditional free-fall pinsetters that rely on gravity to reset pins, string pinsetters utilize a sophisticated network of strings and pulleys. Here's a breakdown:

String System: Durable strings are attached to each pin's top.
Lifting Mechanism: A computer-controlled drawbar raises and lowers the strings.
Pin Resetting: After a roll, the system lifts all pins. The computer determines which pins remain standing and lowers only those for the next frame.

 

Benefits of String Pinsetters

 

String pinsetters offer several advantages over traditional models:

 

Reduced Maintenance: Simpler design with fewer moving parts means easier and faster repairs, minimizing downtime.
Cost-Effectiveness: Lower maintenance and operation expenses translate to savings for bowling alley owners.
Improved Efficiency: Quicker pin resetting allows for faster gameplay, increasing customer throughput.
Quieter Operation: String systems generate less noise, creating a more pleasant bowling experience.

 

Are String Pinsetters the Future?

 

While string pinsetters offer undeniable benefits, some debate surrounds their impact on the game itself. Here's what we know:

USBC Certification: As of August 2023, the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) has certified string pinsetters for competitive play with specific regulations.
Potential Scoring Differences: Research suggests a slight decrease in strike percentages compared to free-fall pinsetters.
A Different Bowling Experience: The overall feel of the game might differ due to the nature of string pin action.

​What equipment do you need for bowling?​

The most essential equipment is the fairway boards, pinsetters, and string pinsetter machines. In addition, the ball-up section and ball-return section are also extremely vital.

​How wide is the bowling lane?​

We have four types of bowling lanes. The width of the 4 standard bowling lanes is 6.9 meters. The width of the 2 duckpin bowling lanes is 3.05 meters. The width of the four mini bowling lanes is 5.66 meters. The width of a single children's bowling lane is 0.9 meters.

How a bowling ball return machine works?

A bowling ball return system uses a combination of gravity, belts, and sometimes lifts to bring your ball back to you after your roll. Here's a breakdown of the typical process:

  1. Ball Exit: After rolling down the lane, the ball exits into a channel at the end. This channel might have a slight incline to help guide the ball towards the return mechanism.

  2. Transfer Tray: The ball rolls into a shallow tray or trough. This tray might have a diverter at the end to ensure balls from adjacent lanes don't collide.

  3. Elevator or Incline (optional): In some setups, the ball might be lifted to a higher level before entering the return system. This creates a steeper decline for the ball to travel down, helping it gain momentum.

  4. Belt Conveyor: The ball reaches a conveyor belt with a textured surface to prevent slipping. This belt carries the ball up an incline.

  5. Gravity Channel: Once at the top of the incline, the ball is released onto a long, U-shaped channel. Gravity takes over, pulling the ball down through the channel.

  6. Ball Deflector: At the end of the channel, there might be a deflector that diverts the ball slightly towards your lane. This ensures the ball ends up in the correct return slot.

  7. Ball Return Tray: The ball finally reaches a tray or cradle positioned in front of your lane, ready for your next roll.

Here are some additional points to note:

  • Modern systems might have sensors to detect the presence of a ball and activate the return mechanism accordingly.
  • Some higher-end systems use quieter materials and designs to minimize noise during ball return.
