Cotton Gin Technology - Bale Tracking Software, Advanced Gin Hydraulics, Seed Scales, Gin Stand Controllers, & Gin Consoles


Gin Stands in Cotton Gin

Serving cotton gins is our bread and butter.  Our mission is to prevent and quickly resolve downtime in your gin.

Data acquisition, master gin consoles, burners, hydraulic pumps, seed scales... Our solutions for cotton gins may seem different, but they all share common themes:

We design all of our controls around protecting and prolonging the life of your motors.  Cotton gins burn out motors rapidly during gin season, so we work to help you protect your assets.

We integrate our technology with your existing equipment, no matter what brand it is.  When all you want is a simple upgrade and other companies require replacing the entire system with their brand, you'll have a second, flexible option with Lubbock Electric.

We put the power of automation and remote monitoring in your gin, reducing your labor costs and increasing employee safety.  Plus, with more data in your fingertips, you'll have the power to take action that prevents loss and downtime.

BaleMasterII Press ConsoleIt's time for a hardened solution that eliminates the #1 point of failure in bale handling and data collection systems.  The new, streamlined BaleMaster™ II System does not require a computer inside the cotton gin.  This means that issues caused by software updates or dust in the computer fan are GONE!

The BaleMaster™ II will
