The Forum Advantage

Experienced designers and engineers simplify and streamline your rig outfitting project, including design, equipment selection, and manufacturing.

Rig Floor Workstation

An integral component of consoles, the ADW 8600 Rig Floor Workstation displays a variety of important data, with a display that’s easy to read even in sunlight. And when you use the workstation as part of the Advanced Driller Monitor System (ADMS), crucial drilling information and office messages are instantly available in a single workstation — clearly displayed in graphical and digital formats. Customizable screens show trends, torque measurements, high/low fluctuations, pump counts, pipe tally, and much more.
