Choosing Genuine AMF replacement parts is choosing certainty over uncertainty. •You can be certain we manufacture parts to original OEM quality. In bowling, a pinsetter, or pinspotter, was originally a person who manually reset bowling pins . The is the general standard in most AMF-equipped modern bowling centers today. It features a microprocessor-operated chassis that is.

While humans usually no longer set the pins, a pinchaser, or in slang ‘pin monkey’, often is stationed near the equipment to ensure that it is clean and working properly, and to clear minor jams. Then the table descends and the respot cells close around each neck of the standing pins. The “arrows” were for the purpose of advising an inexperienced bowler to assist in spare conversion, by indicating where a second ball delivery should hit the remaining pins for a successful conversion, and were triggered by appropriate combinations of standing pins that helped the machine select which one of the eleven arrows to illuminate.

These animations show the difference. Most of these bowling centers use a string type pinsetter similar to five pin. There are three main pinspotter models, the aforementioned no longer produced, but still in common use, ever since the s US bowling boom and the early career of Dick Weber maf, the prototyped inand still in production, since and the newest versions, the and the XLI, both of which use the ‘s general mechanical design.

Other centers will only load the pinsetter with 19 pins. The cells that have pins in them complete electrical circuits that send scoring information to the display, and turned on one or more of ten “pindicator” lights — pioneered by AMF in May amg in an electrically illuminated triangular framed screen on the pinspotter’s masking unit in front of the machine, to amt remaining pins. The sweep is similar to the candlepin Bowl-Mor. The company claimed this technology reduces stops in play due to table jams amt out-of-range pins.

After the table lifts the remaining pins, the machine runs the sweep, clearing dead pins from the pin deck, then returns to the guard position. Soft belly or rubberband duckpin is played in Quebec.

The ball, being amff, travels to one of the side kick-backs where it enters the ball return, shared by adjacent lanes.

Akf elevator composed of a rotating rack of open frames similar to an industrial toaster catches the candlepins and hauls them towards the top of the machine, and then turns 90 degrees to bring the pins horizontally across, bringing the pins past ten conveyors each wide enough to hold pins in a lengthwise orientation.


Common part descriptions for just about all pinspotting units consist of:. They have changed little since the mass-produced version. Some of these units are 82770 in service, with at least one bowling center in Japan having continued to use them, with some design features similar to the Brunswick Model A units in appearance and function. The design of the machines varies, depending both in individual company’s hardware designs, and for the particular bowling sport’s playing rules and equipment specifications.

This interface reads the signal from the Qubica camera.

This will put an end to all the machine stops caused by respot cell wiring. The readout will display the switch actuated and a beeper will sound when the signal reaches the PC board. When a pin lands in an empty location in the turret, the turret rotates or “indexes” so that the next pin will land in the next empty location, with the 5-pin chute in the center of the turret being filled last. Subsequent models year of introduction is in parentheses: Archived from the original PDF on It converts the signal to an APS signal that can be read by the Maximum Technology control board and most other chassis and single-boards for the machine.

Gottfried Fred Schmidt invented the mechanical pinsetter and sold the patent in to AMF firm, which largely did away with pinsetting as a manual profession, although a small number of bowling alleys still use human pinsetters.

Maximum Technology – AMF

Several types of bowling make use of different designs for machines due to the akf size and shape of the pins and balls. As the table lowers towards the pindeck to set the new rack of pins, it is visibly protected with its attached sheet metal “deck shield”, visible to the bowler at any time the spotting table needs to either descend part-way to handle standing pins after the first ball, or to fully descend once loaded from the pin-turret above it to set the new rack of amg for the next frame.

September Learn how and when to remove this template message. With that, the machine lowers a guard, pulls up all 5 pins, and resets those that did not move. The mechanical portion of the pinsetter was originally manufactured in the Brunswick plant located in Stockach, Germany. It features solid state motors. After the bowler rolls their ball, and knocking down the pins, the ball strikes the pit cushion block. The later A2 and JetBack versions, otherwise each virtually identical to the original Model A design, were augmented enough to have much faster ball return action than the original Model A units.

Free-fall 5-pin pinsetters work in a similar way to their ten-pin counterparts, and requires initiation by the bowler pressing a “reset” button as a candlepin unit does to “cycle” it, when a ball is bowled or pin knocked down.


Beginning in Decemberthe units also became famous for having the “Sparemaker” version of the earlier triangular pindicator screen on their masking units as advertised by AMF and amff staff’s pro bowler Dick Weber, which added a set of eleven lighted “arrows” to the usual numbered ten lights for standing pins, triangular corner lights that indicated the first or second ball to be rolled, and separate lights to indicate a foul, or a strike.

There is a large Brunswick “crowned-B” their s logo on the front of maf deck shield of the Model A, “A-2” on the A-2 deck shield front, and “JetBack” on the JetBack deck shield front, unless these markings have been removed or covered by the bowling center proprietor. By pressing a button on the board, it can be put into test-mode. Maximum Technology Offspot switch mounted in the Back End controlbox of the machine.

It featured a flat magnetic pin table and magnets on the head of each pin. The AMF family of pinspotters, first marketed in [1] are the first ones used in quantity in the industry. It may be seated in the pinwheel head-first or base-first. Wedged in between, the ball is rolled upward. String pinsetters are more prevalent, and consist of machines attached to the head of each pin, by means of a cord.

In this test-mode you can actuate every switch in the machine.

Since there is no table, collision damage is not possible with a string pinsetter, but they can suffer from string entanglement when the pins are being picked up, that prevents a,f from aligning with the pickup holes.

Should the spotting cups not yet be filled with a full rack of ten pins for the 870 frame, the sweep bar pauses in its forward amff position after its rearwards stroke to clear any fallen pins, until the cups all have pins in them, with the table only descending when the cups have all filled, and are ready to set them onto the pindeck.
