The founding partners established LUDECA in 1953. In 1982, LUDECA became exclusive representative of Prüftechnik AG for the United States, the Caribbean and Venezuela. Today, this 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 the legendary OPTALIGN® system, manufactured by Prüftechnik in Germany in 1984. OPTALIGN’s then newly patented reflected-laser technology was years ahead of its time, revolutionizing the field of shaft alignment and saving plants untold thousands of dollars in downtime and repairs.
Today, LUDECA remains America’s leading vendor of laser shaft-alignment technology, headed by ROTALIGN® ULTRA and OPTALIGN® SMART and their SHAFTALIGN® entry-level tool. In addition, LUDECA offers geomet-ric 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 VIBROWEB® online condition-monitoring systems.
The company provides alignment, vibration and balancing training, onsite and at its state-of-the-art Miami Training Center, as well as repair, NIST calibration and high-end engineering consultation services.
