Globes with media playback
Giant GRP globe from the satellite view.

One of our specialties is the production of sophisticated globes in various diameters. The surfaces can be printed realistically like a satellite image or simply stylized.

First, a raw sphere with the desired diameter is manufactured from two hemispheres glued together using the GRP hand lay-up process. The surface of the ball body is then filled and sanded to prepare it for wrapping/gluing.

The particular challenge in foiling/gluing a sphere is to divide a 2D image into several elliptical segments in a complex conversion process, which enables the foil plot to be applied to the curves of the sphere.

Example of a foil sticker from Globus.

24 segments are glued onto a sphere with a diameter of 0.77m. The globe with a diameter of 1.91 m already has 32 segments.

Depending on customer requirements, some globes are then coated with a transparent matt varnish to prevent any reflections on the surface of the globe. The globe can now be projected onto using projectors.
