The Corporate Report 2012: Ludeca, Inc.
EP Editorial Staff | December 14, 2012
Its founding partners established LUDECA in 1953. In 1982, we became the exclusive representative of Prüftechnik AG for the United States, the Caribbean and Venezuela. Today, this representation includes marketing and support responsibilities for the entire Alignment and Condition Monitoring Divisions.
LUDECA pioneered laser shaft alignment technology in the U.S. market with the introduction of its legendary OPTALIGN® system, manufactured by Prüftechnik in Germany in 1984. OPTALIGN’s newly-patented reflected- laser technology was, at that point, years ahead of its time, revolutionizing the field of shaft alignment and saving plants untold thousands of dollars in downtime and repairs. Today, with a lineup headed by our globally respected ROTALIGN® ULTRA IS and OPTALIGN® SMART and SHAFTALIGN® tools, LUDECA remains America’s leading vendor of laser shaft alignment technology. We also offer geometric measurement systems, bearing heaters, shims and laser pulley alignment tools.
LUDECA services the vibration analysis field with state-of-the-art portable and online condition monitoring systems, featuring the award-winning VIBXPERT® II vibration analyzer and balancer with the powerful OMNITREND® software as well as VIBNODE® and VIBCONNECT® RF online condition monitoring systems. We also provide alignment, vibration and balancing training (onsite and at our state-of-the-art Miami Training Center), as well as repair, NIST calibration and high-end engineering consultation services.
It’s What We Do: ‘Keep It Running’
LUDECA proudly announces the recent launch of a new logo, slogan and Mission Statement backed by the same fundamental values on which the company was built.
According to Frank Seidenthal, President, LUDECA, Inc., “Our new slogan —‘Keep It Running’—is indicative of what our condition-monitoring solutions are committed to doing: keeping manufacturing running and productive. It’s what we’ve been doing all these years, and it was time to put it in writing.” But that’s not the whole story. As Seidenthal explains it, “We wanted a look and feel that was fresh and modern to reflect our growth and core company focus. Not only do we sell state-of-the-art cutting-edge products, we also improve our customers’ equipment reliability. Our new Mission Statement emphasizes this priority to our employees and our customers that, at LUDECA, we maintain a high standard of ethics, service and customer support by always striving to exceed customer expectations. The proof is in our growth and high rate of repeat business.
