In the demanding environment of the oil and gas industry, NTS Amega Global is proud to offer premier hard banding services designed to significantly extend the lifespan of your downhole tools.  Each hard banding project we undertake adheres to stringent quality control standards, resulting in highly durable and reliable tools that consistently meet or exceed industry requirements.

Our Approach to Hardbanding

Hard banding is a specialized process where a wear-resistant layer is applied to the tool joints of drill pipe or collars. This layer serves as a protective shield against the harsh abrasive conditions experienced during drilling operations. Not only does this process reduce wear on your drill string, but it also helps prevent casing wear, maximizing operational efficiency and reducing downtime.   At NTS Amega Global, our dedicated team of professionals utilizes state-of-the-art technology and materials to provide superior hard banding services. We adhere to a strict procedure that guarantees the application of a uniform, defect-free layer that effectively withstands abrasive wear and extends the life of your equipment.  We understand the unique requirements of each client and the diverse nature of drilling conditions. Therefore, our hard banding solutions are customized to meet these needs and conform to the highest industry standards.  The hard banding process plays an essential role in the overall asset life management strategy, ensuring your tools perform optimally and consistently even in the most challenging drilling environments.

Laser Hard Banding

Laser Hard Banding

Laser hardbanding employs concentrated laser beams to fuse wear-resistant materials onto non-mag collars. This technique ensures precise application, minimal heat-affected zones, and superior protection against abrasive wear and friction.
