Introducing Pipe to Floor

• The trough begins to move up as the skate initiates the pipe measuring sequence. The trough automatically stops at the work floor height. The pipe will not move past the end of the trough until the operator tells it to.

Pipe Tally

• The automated tally system keeps track of every joint. The pipe tally can be downloaded onto a flash drive or be accessed remotely by logging on to a website.

• In all of our testing, the glider has not returned one incorrect pipe length.

LED Display and Pipe Tally

• Bright LED display that shows the current joint number and depth. The LED display can be read up to 300’ away.

• The pipe is measured and presented to the floor, after which the automated tally updates. 

• The automated pipe tally saves the current pipe length and adds it to the tally.
