The manufacturing industry relies on high performance and long-lasting machine systems to meet production goals and budgets.  Even a small factory can have hundreds of brake/clutch components to maintain. ProTec works with both individual factories and with their original equipment brake systems suppliers to assure that friction materials are optimized to keep orderly assembly line operations.
