Capabilities & Technologies
Lufkin is a company with a commitment to constant quality, service and product development. From project inception through final product delivery, we have the ability to handle all aspects of design and production in-house, enabling us to provide faster turnarounds, enhanced quality and products that meet or exceed both customer and industry specifications.
Our vertically integrated manufacturing process enables us to consistently monitor each phase of the product development, so customers benefit from quality that is assured. By integrating the design and manufacturing process, we eliminate potential problems before the gears are actually produced, resulting in gears that deliver maximum uptime. Additionally, Lufkin uses high quality materials such as high nickel chrome carburizing steel to produce the most durable products on the market.
A Technically Advanced Approach
As a technically innovative company, we utilize the latest in 3D CAD design software to develop reliable high performance products that provide smooth initial start-up and years of trouble-free operation. We leverage proprietary gear engineering software tools to assure tooth geometry, meshing action and more. Each gear units receives a Rotor Dynamics Analysis to assure smooth operation under all conditions. As well, every unit undergoes finite element analysis to verify that the proposed design will be able to perform to the client's specifications prior to manufacturing or construction.
