Manufacturer of artificial Christmas trees

We have known for a long time that Polish Christmas balls are in demand in the world. It turns out that Polish producers of Christmas trees are also doing well in foreign markets. Check how artificial Christmas trees are made and why they are such a good alternative to good-natured live Christmas trees.

What materials are artificial Christmas trees made of?

The materials used in their production prove that modern artificial Christmas trees are so beautiful and durable. Thanks to this, they can quite faithfully imitate spruce, pine or Tatra fir.

Foil twigs with PE tips

For that to be the case, foil twigs are used and then connected with polyethylene tips (PE). This material is very soft and pleasant to the touch – unlike the natural needles of a real Christmas tree. In addition, the foil twigs are flexible and resistant to deformation. They will lift heavier ornaments, and moreover, no dust, dirt or moisture accumulates on them. There is nothing to hide – artificial Christmas trees made of foil twigs connected with PE tips are of the highest quality.

PVC foil

Artificial Christmas trees made of PVC foil are much more popular, probably because they are slightly cheaper. In this case, a fairly faithful imitation of spruce, fir, thuja or columnar pine is also possible. Models made of PVC film are simpler, more minimalist and look more traditional.

Vein Christmas trees

Although string trees are not as popular as they used to be, they are still produced. Long, stiff needles imitated the real needles very well. Unfortunately, they had a tendency to deformation during storage during the year.

Manufacture of artificial Christmas trees

And how is the production process of artificial Christmas trees itself? It all starts with steel. The “skeleton” of the tree is made of steel pipes bent into arcs. When welded together, it becomes the skeleton of a tree. After welding, the frame is covered with polyester powder in any color matching the tree. It is harder than paint to prevent scratching and peeling. This is done by baking the frame.

Construction of Christmas tree twigs

The production of twigs takes place in another section. PVC plastic – usually green, after all, it’s about a natural look – is wound on a roller with many round knives. As the foil passes through it, it is shredded into ever finer strips. The result resembles the needle seen on real pines and firs. The tassels are wound on an automatic spool and held there until the next step.

Winding needles on a twig

This stage includes both the finished fringes and additional PVC, usually brown in color. The steel wire is unwound and connected to two sets of PVC. Then they are all screwed together by the machine. The brown PVC ends in the middle of the fringe, making it look like a stem. The cycle goes on endlessly, constantly pumping out the artificial greenery. It is simply cut to the correct length with huge scissors. If the branches are to appear snow-covered, the machine additionally sprinkles them with white latex paint.

Folding branches with a skeleton

The ring fastener is used to clamp the leaves onto the arm of the tree. Factory workers ensure that no gaps are left and adjust the branches to the right angle. If lights are included with the Christmas tree, they are also stretched at this stage. Each bulb is individually checked. Some artificial Christmas trees are already complete with decorations, for those who do not have time to decorate themselves.
