Inside the 'LAPIZ' Factory: The Making of Pencils

A behind-the-scenes look at the pencil factory and the process of manufacturing graphite cores for pencils.

00:00:02 The process of manufacturing a pencil involves crushing rocks, mixing graphite and clay, and placing the mixture inside a steel drum. The resulting lead-like substance is then used to create the pencil's core.

The process of making a pencil involves crushing rocks to create graphite and mixing it with clay.

Pencils with a higher proportion of clay are more durable and create bolder lines.

The graphite in pencils is often mistaken for lead due to its dark color.

00:01:07 A behind-the-scenes look at the pencil factory. The process involves grinding graphite with clay, pressing it into molds, and drying it for two days.

📏 Different pencil numbers (e.g. #2, #4) contain varying amounts of clay in their core.

The mill works for 24 hours, adding water to the drum to create a graphite fluid.

💧 The graphite fluid is then transformed into a dry powder through a filtration process.

00:02:13 Inside the 'PENCIL' Factory: From grinding to molding, the process of creating graphite cores for writing instruments is shown.

🔧 The graphite mixture is prepared and compressed into a dense paste.

⚙️ The paste is molded and placed inside a pencil core.

🔥 The cores are then baked in a large oven to harden.

00:03:18 The video shows the process of manufacturing wooden pencil parts using high temperatures, clay, graphite, and cedar wood.

🔥 The high temperatures activate the clay mixture, hardening the cores and fusing them with the graphite.

🌲 Cedar wood is used to manufacture the wooden parts of the pencils due to its strong and straight veins that prevent splintering.

🖊️ The wooden boards are milled to create grooves for housing the pencil cores, and then assembled into eight pencils at a time.

00:04:24 A glimpse into the manufacturing process of pencils, from the placement of the graphite cores to the shaping and painting of the wooden casings.

The video is about the process of manufacturing pencils.

Glue is used to secure the pencil cores, while rotating cylinders distribute the pencil leads into each slot.

The pencils are then shaped into a hexagonal form and painted with a non-toxic yellow paint.

00:05:28 Discover the history behind the yellow color of pencils and the process of manufacturing pencils in the 'LAPIZ' factory.

📝 The yellow color of pencils was originally chosen to represent royalty and quality.

🚀 Rubber erasers are made by attaching a metal ferrule around the eraser.

✏️ The pencils are sharpened by a pencil sharpener before being packaged.
