The company uses only the highest quality components, assembles them with great care and workmanship, and provides a ten year structural warranty on all of the bodies it builds.

Beyond functionality, the company also offers a full line of aesthetic services. Indeed, Texas Wireline has the ability to completely customize the look of a customer’s truck to fit their brand. From the exterior paint job to the logo decals, Texas Wireline is committed to helping its customers present the right image with the best equipment for any wireline job.

The quality of the equipment extends to comfort and convenience as well, as the interior layout is also completely custom, including cabinets, countertops, racks, and more. According to product information available on the company website, coffee pots, microwaves, monitors, ground reels, intercoms and more are all available components to make the operation of the equipment as comfortable as possible.

The truck bodies available from Texas Wireline come in two types: open hole, and cased hole. The general purpose for a wireline logging truck is to take well logs. A well log is a log of measurements related to the geological properties of a well at specific depths, and these well logs are taken in two different ways. Open hole logging is done when the bore hole of a well is still open, before it has been completed. This means that the measuring instruments have direct access to the surrounding geology all the way down. Cased hole logging is a form of well logging that occurs after a well has been completed and the bore hole has been encased. This procedure uses gamma rays and neutron pulses to analyze geological properties through the well casing. Texas Wireline offers equipment to handle both open and cased logging. Apart from truck bodies, the company offers a broad selection of additional wireline equipment. This includes electronic skid units, flat-backs, and trailers designed for every aspect of the wireline logging industry.

The combined experience of the Texas Wireline team has given the company a unique advantage in the marketplace, enabling it to have a keen understanding of the pitfalls and fail points of the equipment that’s available. The company’s equipment is designed to overcome these challenges and as a result, it is recognized as some of the best equipment on the market.

Throughout the company’s lifetime, it has worked diligently to assemble a team of experts from every corner of the oil and gas industry. This team has collaborated to create wireline logging truck bodies and equipment perfectly suited to the ever-changing needs of the marketplace. Through a commitment to quality and service, Texas Wireline will continue to serve as a leader in the industry.

A key goal of any successful manufacturing operation is a continual drive toward improving the efficiency of the manufacturing process. Traditionally, this has been accomplished through the adoption of lean production principles, waste reduction using the Six Sigma approach, and similar productivity solutions. These systems have been widely incorporated throughout the manufacturing industry and have significantly improved product quality, production speeds, and perhaps most importantly, the safety of those working in manufacturing plants.
