On every drilling operation, tubular handling is essential.

Our standard type machine is able to fit any type of drilling and work-over rig.
THS dual pipe system able to run two pre-assembled range III pipe at the time.
In addition THS developed (patent pending) a new hydraulic remote controlled system to serve snubbing unit up to 30m. high for pipe up to 9⅝” size.


Radio Remote control and all safety devices eliminate the hazard associated to crane usage and swinging loads that might lead to major injuries or fatalities.


Very reliable, no break-downs with a proven track record. Can be used on bad weather conditions and strong wind. Other strong reason is the speed of operations and the capability to handle also D.C. and H.W. pipes. Can be coated to handle CRA material.


Save money by reducing time with 30% compared with conventional operations.


Easy to moveFits all in only one truck


Rig UpThe rig up time is very minimal.


Rig UpPositioned on existing catwalk, no needs to move or modify anything on the rig.

Mechanized Pipe Rack

To solve the problems due to different level of pipe racks in most off shore rigs, THS developed a mechanized pipe rack (patent pending) able to collect pipe from any level and feed directly the pipe handling machine without needs of any other device, included overhead cranes and personnel. The pipe rack will have the same performance and capability of the pipe handling system and will be operated by the same operator from the rig floor.


Rig Up & Rig Down Upper arm Single Lift

Rig Up & Rig Down Loader Legs Single Man Operation

Dual Pick Up & Lay Down Machine

THS Srl has also developed and patented a new machine able to handle two pre-assembled pipe to speed up operations with the same safety level. Running two pre-assembled pipes at the time reduce 50% casing running time.



No hydraulic motors no chains (40 Joints/Hr).


Unique Snubbing Unit Pipe Handler Machine.
