News Update from Hacker International - Hacker has added a third threading line and has expanded its pipe yard. A new CNC hollow spindle, double chuck machine is scheduled to be operational the first of November complete with special software to pick up thread lead to help minimize thread loss. The addition of this new threading line will enhance turn-around time providing our customers with precision threading for High Torque and all API connections all at one location. By utilizing our storage yard, trucking expense is drastically reduced by avoiding double shipping expenses. Hacker now stocks integral one piece API Kellys in a variety of sizes and lengths. Hacker also offers API drill collars and downhole assemblies including spiral integral blade stabilizers. Grant Prideco XT and other proprietary connections are available at our Henderson Texas facility. We will thread it, store it and ship it.
