The technology behind modern day volleyball machines has an interesting story. It all started years ago when people started building their own pitching machines for baseball. As time and technology progressed, people eventually started developing pitching machines with spinning wheels that improved the performance of the machine and the quality of the practice.
With this new technology, the ability to create volleyball pitching pitching machines, otherwise known as volleyball serving machines, was created. Now, the best volleyball machines feature either air technology or 2 and 3 wheels, to create a consistent, accurate and powerful volleyball serve.
A Game Redefined
As Volleyball became more competitive and the jump serve became a standard move, the need for these sophisticated training devices grew. A good volleyball machine needed to be able to provide an adjustable release point - Low releases for serves and high releases for spiking. The machines also needed to consistently deliver high velocity, controlled spin and floaters. It also needed to be durable, portable, and most importantly, budget friendly.
And Sports Attack were able to achieve all of these things! Sports Attack has successfully designed 4 volleyball hitting machines, all with different levels of capabilities and price points.
How Volleyball Serving Machines Work
With the all new wheel design used on modern day Volleyball machines, the highest level or power, precision and accuracy are easily achieved. Because there are multiple wheels moving the ball, changing speeds and creating spin has never been easier.
How it works: The Volleyball machine has multiple spinning wheels that launch the ball. Each of these wheels has its own independent motors, and each motor has its own dial. If the wheels spin at the same speed, it will create a more even serve. If the wheels spin at different speeds, you can control the precision and the "arc" of the serve. Simply change the speeds of each dial, to create the desired serve.
When one wheel is spinning faster than the other, the served ball now has top spin on it, which creates a realistic and competitive serve. The spin that is put on the volleyball as it passes through the machine wheels, will create the arc that closely replicates a serve from a real player.
This "arc" on the serve paired with topspin is as aggressive as a jump serve - This will ensure your players are ready for any serve that comes their way.
This very same concept came from the baseball pitching machines, where engineers figured out ways of creating a machine that can throw curveballs, and pitches that have spin on them. The technology of the volleyball machine comes from years and years of research and development, ensuring your team has the very best training equipment on the market.
