Artec Machine Systems has expanded its capability to provide field services for turbo power and marine gears regardless of manufacture. This includes field inspections, applied diagnostic full-spectrum vibration analysis, repair of existing gear units of all manufacturers, and reverse engineering replacement units for revamps and unit upgrades as well.
Artec will focus on gear technology as a specific discipline for all facets of gear unit design in any installation throughout North and South America. This increased capacity supplements Artec’s long-standing thirty-five-year relationship with MAAG Gear AG which has been terminated. MAAG has retreated from the manufacture of turbo power and marine gears to focus on their core business in heavy-duty mill gears drive mainly in support of gear units for the parent company, FLSmidth. Nevertheless, Artec will continue to provide learned ISO-MAAG & AGMA technology for high-quality materials and services with objective results in the best interest of our customers. This is reinforced by a new cooperative agreement between Artec & MAAG Gear, located in Winterthur, Switzerland company.
Artec’s service center in North Branford, CT maintains a repair and testing facility as well as warehousing of dedicated parts.
