How Badminton Shuttlecocks are Made

Badminton shuttlecocks, also known as birdies, are made using a combination of natural and synthetic materials. Here's an overview of the general process of manufacturing badminton shuttlecocks:

  1. Feathers: The shuttlecock's base consists of a bundle of feathers, usually taken from the left wing of a goose or duck, carefully selected for their quality, weight, and stiffness.
  2. Trimming: The feathers are trimmed to the desired length, typically between 62mm to 70mm, to ensure consistent flight characteristics.
  3. Cork Base: The shuttlecock's base is made of cork, obtained from tree bark, and shaped into a rounded or conical form. The size and weight of the cork base impact the shuttlecock's stability and flight.
  4. Assembly: The trimmed feathers are inserted into the cork base, evenly spaced and arranged in a circular manner, radiating from the center.
  5. Binding: A thin layer of adhesive or glue is applied at the base of the feathers to secure them to the cork, ensuring they remain in place during play.
  6. Finishing: The shuttlecock undergoes quality control inspections, excess feathers or glue are trimmed or removed, and the final product is packed and prepared for distribution.

It's important to note that there are different types of shuttlecocks available for different playing conditions and levels of play. For example, feather shuttlecocks are used in professional and high-level competitions due to their superior flight characteristics. On the other hand, synthetic shuttlecocks, which typically have plastic or nylon feathers, are more durable and suitable for recreational play or training purposes.

The manufacturing process may vary slightly depending on the brand and specific requirements of the shuttlecock, but the general steps outlined above provide an overview of how badminton shuttlecocks are made.
