Groundwow product benefits
Below are just some of the benefits that GroundWOW has to offer. If you have any questions or need further information then please just get in touch.
electric ground printing vehicles
Our ground printing robots are fully rechargeable, electric vehicles giving you up to 28 hours of printing time. This means you do not need to have large teams of people using petrol / gas powered spraying equipment to apply the paints onto the surface. GroundWOW is out of the box and printing in under 10 minutes.
Dynamic printing capability
Our intelligent robots spray paint by the pixels. Perfect images are created using the best pixel size needed for the size of the print. This means if images need to be viewed from different distances our technology will use the required pixel but keep the image quality. This providing two great results.
1. Large sections of block colour or grand scale prints can use 20 to 40mm pixel sizes. This speeds up the print time but keeps the intended quality. Smaller print sizes can use lower pixel sizes such as 10mm creating a high definition appearance and can control finer detail in designs.
2. By adjusting the pixel size this not only speeds up the printing time but it massively reduces the paint usage.
NO PLASTIC STENCILS
Our GroundWOW's print management software makes printing on ground as easy as printing on paper. Upload your graphics, set the dimensions and print directly onto the surface. Print up to six different colours in any one print file, and if needed make any last minute design changes just before you print!
Stencils are mostly made from plastic, costly and have long lead times. Multiple colours require multiple stencils. And if you require a size change then the cost and time frame starts again.
Furthermore our print capability is simultaneous allowing you to print images that stencils can not achieve. Thousands of pixels with up to six different colours can produce photo realistic faces or even billboard style graphic campaigns.
paint reduction & time
Our robots only apply the paint you need and by removing the over spraying that is traditional seen by stencil hand spraying methods provides two very positive outcomes.
1. Only the very tops of the grass surface is sprayed. Paint will not settle and submerge into the lower areas of the grass or soil, allowing the grass to grow and not become blocked with paint.
2. We reduce paint consumption by up to 90% using this technology, which improves cost, drying time and ease of removal.
Once the paint is dry the images will withstand any ground maintenance required including water irrigation and grass cutting.
PAINT AND IMAGE REMOVAL ON NATURAL GRASS
Removing paint from anything has its problems, add that onto a textured surface like natural grass it then becomes even harder. Removal or "pitch turn around" is always the question we get asked because its been an age old problem in the industry for decades.
Which is why we have focused on how the paint is applied to begin with. Our ground printers will only apply the exact amount of paint needed to create the image. This allows the based of the grass blades to grow and push up the painted grass tips. After a few days of growing and daily mowing it will remove the image cutting off the paint. Weather conditions will play a factor into this process but well maintained professional sport fields perform better.
"But I don't have time to wait for that!! We have another tournament with different sponsors the following day!"
And we can help with that! GroundWOW robots have the ability to print over and existing image or print area with a different image. Or speak with us and our team will advise the best practice for your requirements.
print on subscription or managed service
Technology will win or lose based on ease of operation. Our intuitive technology has been designed for anyone to operate. Full training is provided and comes complete with our print management and event planning software.
If you are looking for additional support, GroundWOW’s activation team can deploy technology on your behalf and manage logo applications as per your brief.
