Local companies are bringing technology into today's modern cotton gin.
Touch screens and computers are now present in all areas of ginning. Smart phone apps monitor gin operations, while service technicians troubleshoot machinery remotely via the internet.
In my career, automation has helped increase outputs ten-fold.
Come see the latest gin technologies at the Texas Cotton Ginner's trade show at the Lubbock Civic Center, April 6th & 7th.
