BSOD 0x7f - what hardware or software driver is causing this?

The BSOD occurs randomly and has happened when the operator is not even running any programs (ie went to break and came back to see BSOD). This is a laptop used in manufacturing environment so no games involved, but lots of "manufacturing" software is installed (rockwell, automation direct). I have attached the zip file with minidump information from this computer.
