Remote controlled dowel drilling

Wireless remote control increases efficiency and safety for concrete dowel-pin drilling applications, company officials note, citing patent-pending technology to improve jobsite conditions by affording operator better vantage point for more accurate placement. By removing the operator from the drilling unit, the wireless remote control allows workers to avoid harmful dust and debris. Furthermore, the operator also has a broader viewpoint for avoiding obstacles, equipment, and other workers on the job site, and thus minimizing risk on site. — www.minnich-mfg.com
