Technological developments that are now standard throughout the industry include the unique QuickTip hardfacing system. Our technical department has a close relationship with the department of Materials Science & Engineering at the University of Sheffield. This has resulted in a number of projects to research new hardfacing methods and materials to reduce wear and improve the cutting performance of downhole tools. We also offer support to our customers through training and technical support to solve hardfacing problems. Whether through setting up a new workshop, or expanding an existing facility, we have the materials and equipment available to produce world class hardfacing.
