Technicians working on gas and oil drilling rigs from Xtreme Coil must keep their eyes on the work area, as well as on the computer monitors that graphically display rig parameters and performance. Until recently, this was a problem because the monitors were fixed in place and often interfered with the technicians’ view of the outside surroundings.
To solve this problem, Xtreme Co0il worked with Strongarm Inc. to customize on that firm’s ceiling mounted arms to hold monitors. The arms are counter-balanced and totally adjustable, so technicians can easily move or turn monitors to keep them in sight and away from blocking views of the work area. Strongarm was also able to add accessible keyboard trays and mouse ports, KVM extenders for remote locations, and customized arm mounts to streamline installation in operator cabs on drilling rigs.
