The founding partners established LUDECA in 1953. In 1982, LUDECA became exclusive representative of Prüftechnik AG for the United States, 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 US 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, saving plants untold thousands of dollars in downtime and repairs.
Today LUDECA remains America’s leading vendor of laser shaft alignment technology, headed by the award-winning ROTALIGN® ULTRA and OPTALIGN® SMART and their new SHAFTALIGN® entry-level tool. In addition, LUDECA offers 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 VIBXPERT® and VIBSCANNER® vibration analyzers and balancers with the powerful OMNITREND® software as well as VIBNODE® and VIBROWEB® online condition monitoring systems.
The company provides alignment and vibration training on site and at their state-of-the-art Miami Training Center as well as repair, calibration and high-end engineering consultation services.
LUDECA representatives provide additional support across the entire USA—including Alaska and Hawaii--as well as in the Caribbean and Venezuela
