The Process

Send us your image along with a map of your site and we’ll do the rest.

Our technical staff can work with you to print your design specific for your desired location.

Send your graphic image file along with any desired specifications. Our staff will optimize the graphic and convert it to TurfPrintFXTM code. Any mobile devise will download the file into the TurfPrinter controller. It’s then ready to print.

Take a few minutes to set up Topcon’s base station and link to the TurfPrinterTM

The ultra-precise positioning system provides graphic placement and repeatable re-printing

A base station and mobile (TurfPrinterTM) receiver work together outdoors while a similar laser based system is used in confined locations. Set up the Hyper GPS/Total Station laser base system and use the mobile receiver to (3D) map your entire site and graphic position with centimeter precision.

Drive the TurfPrinterTM to the starting corner, choose image, hit a start button and begin printing

Printing paths are dynamically displayed on the driver interface screen.

TurfPrinterTM is based on a tractor known for the optimal straight line performance, so manual steering and visual tracking produce straight, consistent rows of precisely printed information. Dedicated, bidirectional control software allow printing in both directions so an entire image can be efficiently printed in less that 1 hour

How it Works…

Directed air and GPS positioning train the reflective surfaces of turf to produce striking contrast

The TurfPrinterTM, position system and optical principle above work in concert to behave like a super-sized dot matrix printer.

The dramatic contrast stripes seen on sports fields is simply reflected or redirected light coming from individual blades. The TurfPrinter system gently produces slight changes in turf angle (as shown).

Controlled streams of air delivered into a ventilated roller creates high definition imagery where only simple forms were possible before
