CUSTOM TRACK SERVICE

OUR CUSTOM TRACK SERVICE ENHANCES BUILT-IN VALUE

Caterpillar® builds value and durability into every undercarriage system, balancing critical factors like raw materials, heat treat processes, and the amount of wear material. Because Caterpillar has control over these processes, Cat undercarriage components wear at a predictable rate and can be managed as a system. At Altorfer Cat, we help you take full advantage of this built-in value with expert system management and planning assistance.

OUR CUSTOMER TRACK SERVICE PROVIDES FAST, ACCURATE ANALYSIS

To make good undercarriage maintenance and repair decisions, you need accurate information in a timely manner. Using the Ultrasonic Wear Indicator, we can accurately determine the condition of your undercarriage system quickly so you can get your machines back to work. We electronically download data from the Ultrasonic Wear Indicator into our computers, ensuring quick, accurate transfer of information. Using our computerized CTS program, we analyze the results and prepare cost-per-hour projections for a variety of service options.

OUR CUSTOM TRACK SERVICE ALLOWS FOR INFORMED DECISIONS

We use these CTS reports to make service recommendations. Together, we can decide on the course of action that best meets your equipment planning needs. By scheduling maintenance and avoiding unscheduled downtime, you can run your equipment more productively.
