RODBOT™

The hydraulic robotic pipe handler.

DESIGNED FOR ALL APPLICATIONS

RodBot™ is suitable for mining, construction, the oil & gas industry—wherever rod handling is needed. You will find RodBots working in the field around the world, with more being commissioned for a variety of applications all the time.

SAFETY MEETS PRODUCTIVITY

RodBot is a hydraulic robotic rod-handling system designed specifically for the seamless loading and unloading of drill rods and casing. It eliminates the need for manual rod handling, a leading cause of on-the-job injuries, while significantly boosting production times. RodBot can be adapted to a wide range of drilling equipment including drill rigs, pipe tubs and skids.

MEDATech’s Borterra drilling division has been developing unique drilling solutions for over 10 years. You’ll find our drill rigs, rod-handling systems and associated equipment in mining, construction, oil & gas and other applications across North America.

SAFE & FAST

RodBot eliminates hand-bombing entirely and avoids obstacles, keeping workers out of harm’s way while handling sections of pipe up to 12” in diameter and 35’ long. Set the drill mast and rod storage positions once, then hit ‘repeat’. Just one operator is required.

User-friendly-8

USER-FRIENDLY & ADAPTABLE

RodBot is an easy tool for operators to master thanks to computer-assisted controls with embedded collisionavoidance. Controlling the robotic arm is less difficult than playing most video games. RodBot makes both new and existing equipment highly efficient. Choose from wired or wireless controls, install yourself or rely on Borterra for customization and integration.

3 MODES OF OPERATION

Step 1-8

JOINT CONTROL

Use joysticks to move each
joint individually

Step 2-8

TIP CONTROL

Use joysticks to move the gripper in the X, Y, Z axes. Path planning software moves each joint as required

Step 3-8

SEMI-AUTO CONTROL

Set points A and B, hit ‘go’ and the RodBot determines the path between each point using collision avoidance
