BenchREMOTE offers increased productivity and efficiency. One operator can run up to three rigs from the same BenchREMOTE.


The best way to protect the operator is to remove them from unstable and hazardous benches. BenchREMOTE makes it possible to drill close to the wall without anyone needing to be in the drilling area.


BenchREMOTE dramatically reduces noise and dust levels for the operator. It's also possible to site several BenchREMOTE stations together, making direct communication between operators and management much more direct and effective.
