Welding and Fabrication

Welding and fabrication is a big part of what the Western Drilling Tools machine shop is all about; welded products are regularly certified. Western Drilling’s staff include a number of certified welders including B-pressure certification available to fabricate tools and equipment to your needs and specifications.

The machine shop at Western Drilling Tools offers a large welding area and various welding services.  We have the capability to perform arc, MIG, TIG and B-pressure welding. We have experience welding a great number of different materials. In addition to welding, we offer brazing and hard facing on many products including rebuilding and re-tipping drill bits. Western Drilling Tools also often provides third party non-destructive testing and certification on the welding services we provide.

Some of the non-destructive testing we can provide include x-ray testing, magnetic particle inspection (MPI) and liquid penetrant inspection (LPI). Western Drilling Tools looks forward to providing our welding and fabrication services to your company
