The company Robotic Drilling Systems started out as a Norwegian company, specialized into drilling automation. Their solutions was back in early 2000 totally new, and nearly unbelievable. But there were some early believers; among them Validé and industrial partners like ConocoPhillips and Equinor (that time Statoil)

Today Canrig is the name of the tool they produce in Sandnes, and the drilling company Nabors is the owner. Canrig manufactures a premier line of automated drilling equipment and rig components and is vertically integrated with Nabors. Canrig's product line includes 10 electric top drives, five hydraulic top drives, three casing running tools and seven automated catwalks as well as rig floors and tubular handling equipment.
