Achieve superior performance in vertical drilling applications.

  • Description Description
  • Resources Resources

Our VectorEXAKT vertical RSS is designed for high performance in vertical drilling operations. The VectorEXAKT system is set apart by its high rate of penetration, precise verticality control, and robust design.

The VectorEXAKT RSS stays on course through continuous steering—when there is a deviation from vertical, the system will autonomously steer back on course. You can also run the VectorEXAKT system below a motor for performance drilling applications.
