Transocean decided to partner with FANUC’s Authorized System Integrator, ARC Specialties, to design an automated solution to handle the drilling riser connections, which was the most labor-intensive operation. Before automation, this hazardous job required team members to carry heavy bolts and use brute force to manipulate torque wrenches for each bolt on the riser.
By partnering with ARC Specialties, Transocean has successfully implemented a robotic solution that keeps their workers out of hazardous red zones and improves the overall safety onsite. The two FANUC M-900iB/280 FoundryPro robots offer enhanced rigidity for superior precision even in tough environments; unlocking maximum efficiency gains by allowing team members to focus on different tasks!

ARC Specialties has always worked with us closely to develop new equipment to streamline the process and try to automate and eliminate variables as much as possible. ARC Specialties is a partner not just a vendor.
ARC Specialties offers excellent training facilities, on-site and off-site, for all of their equipment, which walks the operators through the latest techniques and so forth that they have to add to the machines.
By integrating ARC Specialties' process, each stage of production stays in balance, and the plant is able to run without interruption. That's been a huge improvement in operation.
ARC Specialties has provided us: training, communication, and installation despite our location. Whatever problems we might have with operations, they are always available.
The products and equipment that ARC Specialties make are vital to this company. There are others that integrate robotics that try to make cladding equipment, but none of them do it quite like ARC.
