You have a great idea, but not sure how to develop it and turn it into reality. From concept generation to prototyping to full production, LTS will guide you through the process to bring your dream to life.

Computer Aided Design – the foundation of product development.  LTS will create 3D models of your idea, optimize the design in virtual space, and produce manufacturing drawings to make it real.

Your idea is complicated. You have to consider strength, moving parts, and tolerances. Leverage the technical strength of LTS to crunch the numbers and ensure that your idea works right…the 1st time.

If only there was a faster, better way. Custom Excel-based software solutions from LTS are the answer.  From sophisticated design tools, to stand alone macros, and anything in between, we will automate your processes to save you time, and increase productivity.

Gearing can be tricky, especially if you’re trying to push the envelope. You need a design that is reliable and robust. Whether it’s planetary sets, spur gears, spline drives…you name it, LTS has the solutions for your power transmission needs.

Your product needs a motor, and you need help choosing the best one for the job. LTS has years of pneumatic and DC electric motor design experience. We can even help you design a custom motor. If its sub-horsepower and spins, LTS knows all about it.

Designing an automated machine can be very involved. Hundreds of parts, motors and pneumatics, wiring and PLC controls. Everything has to fit and work together properly, not to mention be strong and durable enough to get the job done. Leverage the expertise of LTS to design your machine right, the 1st time.

LTS engineers are as creatively artistic as we are technically proficient.  The aesthetics of design are often as important as the mechanics, and we operate under a philosophy that form and function should always be in balance.  We use both sides of our brains.

Other products and services from Lucas Technical Services


CAD Designer and Consultant | 3D CAD Drafting and Design Services

We have a wealth of experience working in both SolidWorks and Unigraphics, and are pleased to offer both depending on your needs and preferences. Some projects require hundreds or thousands of unique parts to be combined in sub and main assemblies, resulting in a singular, cohesive design. A solid model is built out of operations a sketch that results in the creation of a solid body.


New Product Protoyping, Design Engineer and Development Services | Custom Products Designer

LTS can guide you through the entire process, or for just a few of the steps depending on your needs. All new consumer products have to go through some form of the following steps.


Mechanical Engineering Analysis and Consulting | 3d Mechanical Design Analyst

This can be a tricky matter, but LTS uses state-of-the-art, custom designed engineering tools to manage all of the tolerances to ensure that everything will fit together as intended. This tolerance has to be considered when designing mating parts…the Min diameter for the hole must not interfere with the Max diameter of the pin.


Planetary Gear Design and Optimization

Gear ratio selection tool- Multiple planetary stage design- Non-standard involute profile optimization - Stress and contact ratio analysis- Gear meshing animation- Automatic gear block creation- Gear design database utility- Automated gear design optimization. Most importantly, LTS will make deviations to the standard involute profile, and optimize the design to equalize and minimize teeth stress, as well as maximize contact ratio.


Custom Excel Macros | Excel Spreadsheet Training

An advanced technique is to do a manual regression calculation in the sheet itself…taking the sum of power terms and product terms of your X & Y data, constructing matrices in the sheet, and performing matrix inversions and multiplications using the MINVERSEand MMULTfunctions.
