Alter’s Fate “The Making”


how

Alter updated their Blog with a “Behind The Scene” look on how they actually mass-produced their figures in the factory, in particular the figure shown right now is the upcoming Fate T. Harlaown ^^

First is the “Metal Mold”.

how

how

Shown here is how the metal plate is used to mold a part of the hair. There are atleast 2-3 different types of metal plates just to mold one body part. Not to mention that they have to create new ones if some adjustments is needed.

how

They mentioned that the number of plates needed greatly affect the production cost ^^;

Next we have the “Tanpo Printing”.

how

Shown here is how the method is used to create the “Stamp Plate” for the eyes. A thin metal is used for the plate.

how

A special liquid is applied on the metal where a sheet with an image of the eyes is put on top of it. Then a special Light Ray is used to imprint the image on the metal.

how

The finished product will then have the “Eyes” on it, presented in white colour.

how

A brush with another special liquid on it then applied on the white part of the eyes for 1 minute.

how

It will then corrode the metal away and dented it to produce the “Stamp”, where the ink is applied on it and “pressed” together to produce the “Sticker” of the eyes.

how

…and that’s the end of it ^^;

More will be shown at later date. Via Alter’s Blog.

    Nice to see the inside story of how figures are made. I always wonder how they put the eyes on and now I know, it still is a confusing process though.
