What types of Line Marking Machines are available and how do they differ?
Dry Line Marking Machine
In the case of a dry Line Marking Machine, also known as a chalk car, the marking is done with a sports field chalk, lime or plaster. This spreading material is distributed using a brush system or a vibrating screen. This method is suitable for lawn and gravel tracks and lasts up to several weeks. The marking paint used is harmless and environmentally friendly.
Wet Line Marking Machine
The marking with a wet Line Marking Machine is applied using a liquid paint. The color distribution takes place via a pump or roller system and is applied with a color pressure roller or a spray nozzle. This method is suitable for lawn and hard courts, but also for synthetic tracks.
How is a Line Marking Machine cleaned?
With a dry Line Marking Machine, the marking material can remain in the trolley in a dry environment. Complete emptying is not recommended until autumn, due to the increased humidity. Cleaning with a wet Line Marking Machine is more complex. After each use, the paint must be removed and the pipes flushed with water, otherwise the systems can become blocked.

Areas of application for Line Marking Machines
The Line Marking Machine on a sports field is part of the basic equipment. Because without marking the playing field or the running track, no sporting competition is possible. This applies to stadiums as well as the numerous hard courts. The individual player or athlete must know whether he is in the penalty area or running into another athlete's career. The spectators can cheer when the ball lands behind the goal line. Accordingly, the specific field lines must be applied with a Line Marking Machine for each sport.
In the case of lawns, usually only the markings of the most practiced sport are attached. This is often dictated by the local clubs, so most sports fields in Germany are equipped with a soccer field. But of course there are also other lawn sports such as rugby, American football or field hockey. Since a lawn grows back and the structure changes continuously, sports field markings from lawn areas have to be traced more often with the Line Marking Machinet. There is also a choice of special lawn marking paint that glows more strongly on the green.
Hard courts of schools and municipalities are often equipped with field markings for several sports. Due to the hard surface and the mostly smaller playing field, the courts are suitable for several sports, for example also for basketball or handball. To enable multiple use, the lines are applied in different colors with the Line Marking Machine, which stand out better on the granules of the floor thanks to the higher contrast compared to a lawn.
