With the BenchREMOTE you can simultaneously remotely control up to three Epiroc Smart surface drill rigs from a distance of up to 100 meters. This enables operators to be highly productive without even having to enter a dangerous/hazard zone. The result is both a safer and a more effective mining operation.
- BenchREMOTE increase productivity, it enhanced safety and it provides the operator with better working conditions, says Mattias Hjerpe.

The fact that BenchREMOTE is also available for SmartROC T45 LF, SmartROC C50 and SmartROC CL is an important step for Epiroc.
- We know that our product is highly appreciated and it feels good that we could provide this updated version with the opportunities it offers for Epiroc customers, says Mattias Hjerpe.

BenchREMOTE is a remote operator station designed to control SmartROC rigs from Epiroc. Up to ten rigs can be pre-programmed into each station.
