Robots from TinyMobileRobots are spreading around the world
Medway Norse (UK) using TinyLineMarker for automated sports line marking

Big future for TinyLineMarker at Medway Norse

Medway Norse, Facilities Management Service Provider, United Kingdom

The prospect of at least 30% time savings by using a robot line marker compared to manual line marking – plus the resulting additional benefits in costs and labour resources – proved irresistible to Medway Norse, as the Kent-based grounds and facilities management specialist has become one of the first users of the TinyLineMarker.

Doncaster Council has big plans for TinyLineMarker

Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council, United Kingdom

The extraordinary levels of savings in time, resources and therefore money forecast by the investment in the robotic TinyLineMarker (TLM) line marking machine will not only see Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council’s Street Scene team achieve a return on investment measured in months, but the new-found efficiencies will also enable the operation to offer ultra-competitive line marking to sports facilities currently outside of the council’s remit.

TinyLineMarker a ‘no-brainer’ for Parkway Ground Maintenance

Grounds Maintenance Contractor, United Kingdom

Not only does contractor Dean McDermott know that his purchase of the TinyLineMarker robotic line marking machine will make a big difference to his current operation, “but I know the machine will also enable us to further expand by offering cost-effective line marking to a multitude of new customers – councils and contractors alike,” he says. “Its purchase, to enable us to be more efficient with our current line marking let alone future expansion, was a no-brainer,” he claims.

Adur & Worthing Council can bank on the TinyLineMarker

Grounds Maintenance Contractor, United Kingdom

“With around 72 regular line marking operations on sites having full-size football and rugby pitches, plus mini pitches, as well as summer sports like cricket (we mark the boundaries at six pitches) and four running tracks, the potential for savings – in terms of time alone – are enormous.”

Vejle Municipality in Denmark service many different sports areas for schools and sports clubs in the municipality and the TinyLineMarker allows them to save a lot of time.

Team Lead Heine Clemensen says, “While the robot is working, the groundsman can perform other tasks during the 20 minutes that it takes to mark a football field. He can collect waste, maintain the grass and perform other different tasks around the field (…) We have now used it for little over a year and as it turns out, the numbers that we were hoping for are actually a lot better than we’d expected.”

Vejle Municipality use their TinyLineMarker for soccer fields, American football fields and athletics tracks. We met with groundkeeper Jonas Lindsted to hear about his experiences with the line marking robot. See how he uses the robot and tablet on a daily basis to create, copy, move and align fields on sports grounds throughout the municipality.

Customer case story for sports line marking

Vejle, Denmark

Interview with Heine Clemensen, Municipality of Vejle in Denmark.

Heine Clemensen from the Municipality of Vejle was overseeing the first marking of pitches in Vejle by the TinyLineMarker robot. He said:

“Basically, I am a very sceptical person, and I don’t have much faith in new systems. However, both the engineering of the machine and the quality of the work has surprised me quite a bit. The compact dimensions and the low weight of the robot is impressive. For daily use and handling, it is very important for us to be able to move the robot in and out of vans and down stairs. When marking the field, I was expecting the robot to move at a snail’s pace, but watching it, I was surprised to see how fast it was operating. The tablet for setting up fields looks to be very easy and user friendly”.

Interview with Knud Madsen, Beder-Malling

Knud Madsen did the layout and marking of the fields from beginning to end at his grounds. When asked about his experience working with TinyLineMarker, he replied:

“It is like being in heaven. For the past 20 years, the first marking has always been a hassle. Five or six people from the area and the municipality would work hard and spend many hours measuring with cords and tape measures, calculating angles to premark the pitches. It was a nightmare. With TinyLineMarker you just select and place the pitch on the tablet. Then you start the robot and within 20 minutes you have a marked football pitch. And the markings are straight.”

Madsen also talked about using the tablet: “In the beginning it was an ordeal. I am by no means a computer geek. But seeing how easy it was to place a pitch was a fantastic experience. It is a whole new way of working. New layouts, because of puddles or damaged areas, give you much more flexibility in designing the best layout for the pitch. Even today we had to change layout due to damage from moles. With the GPS tablet, it was quite easy to see on the satellite image where the pitches would fit. If in doubt, you do a test run around the outlines to see if there are any problems with trees or bushes. It is a very clever system. The size and weight of the robot impressed me. Even one person can carry the robot to and from a van. It is compact enough to fit in any van or trailer. Thank you for letting me use the system. I hope that many others get to experience your robot.”
