An integration mindset

Using a philosophy of process-based ergonomics, Hitec shifted the focus from individual machine control to integrated drilling systems, paving the way for modern drill-floor automation. Cyberbase™ replaced gauges and manual switches with modern joystick controls, keypads, and computer screens that have become industry standards.
