Since 1981 the name LUDECA has been synonymous with SHAFT ALIGNMENT. We introduced to the U.S. market the first pre-programmed dial indicator alignment tool, the Machinery Alignment Computer (“M.A.C.”), followed by the ALI 2000 in 1983.
We then pioneered laser alignment in the United States with the OPTALIGN®. This success was followed in the years thereafter by such recognized brand names as ROTALIGN®, SHAFTALIGN® and ALIGNEO®.
As of April 1st, 2016 a new chapter will begin in the evolution of Laser Shaft Alignment and Geometric Alignment Systems in the U.S. market, as LUDECA, INC. joins forces with the prestigious Swedish manufacturer EASY-LASER® for the sale and service of their highly accurate, logical, intuitive and easy-to-use laser alignment systems that expand your measurement capabilities with solutions that evolve with industry. The name behind the product says it all: EASY-LASER. Built for today with a vision for tomorrow.
LUDECA’s well-known and unparalleled technical and service support will continue to back up every system we deliver to our valued customers, both old and new. Calibration and repairs will continue to be done at our Doral, Florida facility. On-site training by factory-trained alignment specialists will be offered, as well as in-depth product training at our state-of-the-art training center in Doral.
LUDECA and EASY-LASER are excited about our new opportunity to serve existing and future customers with the best products for their maintenance and reliability needs.
