• Pipe Interlock Management

    With the multitude of machines working on and around the drill floor, accidents can easily happen due to operator error or fatigue.
    Description

    Critical situations exist during handover of a pipe or stand between two machines or when two machines are actively working with the same pipe. To help manage these challenging situations, we have delivered the Pipe Interlock Management (PIM). Our PIM is a software-based product that continuously monitors all activities of selected drill floor machines working in a common zone. When operating machines in either auto or manual mode, PIM will stop a machine from performing an action that will damage another machine working with the same stand.
