At Hardbanding Solutions (Europe) Ltd we’re absolutely determined that our customers get the most out of our products. That’s why we offer on-site training as standard with the purchase of any of our units, as well as free on-site technical presentations to bring you up to speed on the latest developments in drill pipe and casing protection.
We believe welders should be trained on their own equipment, in their own working environment. So when you purchase one of our units we come to you – no matter where you are in the world – for free.
Since we first launched in 2011, we’ve travelled extensively across Europe, Russia and Africa to train applicators in the fundamentals of hardbanding and grow the global licensee network for Duraband NC hardband material.
Training usually takes 4-5 days.

If you’re employed by a service company, a drilling contractor, a drill pipe rental company or an oil and gas operator, we can help you understand hardbanding better. Chances are, you’ll have a lot of responsibility and a good deal more to think about than hardbanding. We don’t, hardbanding is all we do. We live and breathe it.
Our offer to share all we’ve learned about hardbanding, with you and your colleagues, is a genuine one. We’ll fly over, provide free, on-site technical presentations at your office and not leave until you’re confident you know as much as we do (well, almost). We’ll discuss how you can get the most from your drill pipe, and the latest technical milestones from API/Mohr Engineering and NS-1 standards.
(Please note: although we don’t charge for our visits, tea and biscuits are always welcome.)
