Skye Units Protect Drill Pipe on 4 Continents
At Hardbanding Solutions we just love it when customers contact us to say what they think of their new purchase. We began developing Skye Hardbanding Equipment in 2014, and this year we’ve become a truly global supplier. We now have units operating in North and South America, as well as in Europe and Asia. Skye is protecting drill pipe from the open plains of Wyoming, USA, to the hot sands of the Middle East. We thought we would share some customer comments, so here they are…
The new hardbander is performing well. We are extremely happy with it. We have been utilizing it full time in the shop …with the help of Darren and Dean with linear welding we have opened up a lot of new avenues. The unit is remarkable. We always find something new that impresses us. Thank you again for a great product and great people to work with. Kinda miss having those guys up here and hope to see them again soon
Service Company, North America
The Skye hardbanding unit, which was delivered by Hardbanding Solutions, is manufactured with the highest quality of components. Construction of the machine is very well thought out, with very low maintenance, easy access to all switches, and intuitive control. The high quality of this machine makes us proud to have it in our workshop. We were especially pleased that both the control panel and PLC displays were provided in our Language. An additional advantage to buying the unit from Hardbanding Solutions, is Durband NC training for our operators, and the certification of our Mechanical Workshop for using this method to repair and protect Drill Pipe Tool Joints. Delivery time of the unit was according plan without any delay, and allowed us to start work with our Skye Hardbanding unit according to schedule. The manufacturer of the unit also keeps enough Duraband NC wire in stock to guarantee fast delivery to our workshop.

We now have three Skye Hardbanding Machines working 3 shifts every day and we have had no problems at all with them. We only had to carry out general maintenance. in 5 years, we have never had a customer complaint about our application of Duraband NC onto their tool joints. We are very happy with the products and support from Hardbanding Solutions.
I must say, after my visit and seeing the unit I was very impressed. (Scottish engineering at its best) …… it will fit our needs perfectly.
Machine going great so far, when we can generate enough business we would be looking for another one.
