Description: 
A Greek inventor has developed a patented tool for screwing and unscrewing earth drilling pipes faster and easier (ie drilling pipes used in irrigation networks, petroleum extraction platforms etc.). The invented machine is suitable for earth drilling pipes of any type or diameter and it can be used with the same efficiency for vertically or horizontally installed pipes without any addition or modification. Technically the system incorporates both right and left rotation modes for screwing and unscrewing respectively. It also includes a vibration mechanism and a hummer which hits the pipe repeteativelly with frequency 250 times per minute. The different operation modes of the machine can be either activated manually or automatically using sensors. Moreover the common hydraulic part of the tool may be driven with electric or diesel powered engine. The invention for the moment has been patented in Greece, whereas no relevant technological solutions have been identified in patent scope database yet. The inventor is interested in offering the specific machine to industrial machinery or agricultural machinery or petroleum comanies under licencing agreement.
Type (e.g. company, R&D institution…), field of industry and Role of Partner Sought: 
The inventor is interested in discussing with companies dealing with machinery (industrial or agricultural) as well as petroleum companies. The collaboration sought is licence agreement.
