While viewing a sports page, Founder and President of New Ground Technology Pete Davis noticed dramatic light and dark stripes on a sports field. Research revealed groundskeepers attempts at producing cryptic graphics using laborious and time intensive processes. With his background in ultra-precision machine design and micro-lithography (circuit printing) he thought;
“An intelligent machine could use air to efficiently arrange and deliver light and dark pixels onto a field without limitations to detail or size! “
Fast forward eight years, and two patents later and the TurfPrinter is now ready to transform fields around the world.
Pete’s original idea for the TurfPrinter took thousands of hours of engineering, testing, graphics interpolation and market vetting before it was debuted on the San Francisco Giants field for opening day in 2016. Since that time highly refined TurfPrinterFX systems would be coupled to robust, turf friendly chassis. This evolved technology produces high-definition imagery with better command over tough turf like Bermuda blends.
