• Auto Driller Control

    Simplifying an operator’s task reduces the risk of human error, lessens work load and allows you to focus on the entire drilling process.
    Description

    Our auto driller controller (ADC) software system provides better payout with enhanced weight on a bit control, ultimately optimizing rate of penetration. Your drilling processes will not only be faster and more consistent, but usage of power and carbon footprint will decrease. Similar to your car’s cruise control, once the operator has entered a set point, there is no need for continuous steering from the driver. Reductions of drilling costs will decrease with less downhole vibration occurring, and your projects will be successful with our ADC software system – a crucial technology for every downhole operation.
