Survey IQ on the Frontline for Drillers
Mining-tech company IMDEX™ has simplified the data deluge that flows from modern drilling, negating the need to have multiple tablets to capture the information from individual exploration tools. IMDEX™ SURVEY-IQ™ allows efficient and simultaneous quality assured survey and gamma logging that can be completed by one member of the drill crew. Survey results are immediately available for approval through the cloud-based service IMDEXHUB-IQ™.
Using one tablet and interface with multiple tools at the same time reduces hardware costs, including tablets, and chargers, while increasing functionality. Lee Webb, Global Product Manger Downhole Navigation, says the latest iteration of the SURVEY-IQ™ focuses on streamlining the use of the tool and automatically populating key fields, which reduces the risk of errors being introduced. “We are trying to introduce as much automation in the survey process as possible for the end user while also recognizing that drillers want different data from geologists.”
