The patented AirPrint system relies on a gentle stream of air to precisely bend small “pixels” of grass. Minimal layout and groundskeeper interference are realized. 2 simple points, commercial, laser or GPS technology delivers repeatable, centimeter positioning.
Ideal conditions for high contrast graphics are qualified by the presence of existing mowing stripes. Basically, any field surface that can be striped will accept printing and deliver brilliant results. Uniform (stadium) lighting, used during night games can degrade contrast, again observe mowing stripes.
The result is fast, grass friendly detail with daily or weekly re-print capability. Weather concerns are no problem as the printing process and desirable contrast are enhanced with reasonable precipitation.
The system prints at a rate of approximately 1 square yard per second. Large, 30 x 30 meter graphics are printed in about 15 minutes. A second pass can be swiftly executed for added contrast and extended duration and require a couple of on-field hours and are immediately playable or erasable.
Graphics are surprisingly durable as the printing “lay” is further embossed by compressive foot traffic. Hill sides offer premiere opportunities so our low center of gravity equipment is designed and capable of 25 degree slopes. Removing the graphic can be accomplished by mowing.
It’s a simple process… tell us your project ideas such as; type of event, desired imagery, print size, type of turf and specific field location for the final print. Email us your logo or photos and our design team will create an exceptional promotional piece for you.
On print day, the final optimized artwork is then uploaded to the TurfPrinter using our mobile technology app and then the magic happens! Get ready to engage your audience and sponsors with stunning hi-def imagery on turf or pitch.
