The [ETESA] solution
Did you know…?
Consumption of spare and Wear Parts contributes significantly to the maintenance costs of earthmoving machinery.
And these high maintenance costs dramatically affect productivity gains and profitability:
Therefore, it is critical to choose the right GET based on:
• Quality of the alloy steel
• Site application
Poor manufacturing leads to substandard quality parts that are fragile or show premature wear. This results in:
• Increase in equipment downtime
• Increase in overall operating costs
• Increase in risk insurance premiums
Benefits of trusting ETESA
Increase in the overall performance of the equipment
Reduction of downtimes
Extension of the service life of equipment and buckets
Lower maintenance and operating costs
Less fuel consumption
Reduced risk onsite
Established 1968ETESA is founded in Madrid, Spain by Juan Puertas Von Mehren at a time when the steel industry in Spain was booming.
Leading the Wear Parts industry in SpainManufacturing begins under licence of major OEM such as Caterpillar, Komatsu, Fiat-Allis and John Deere.
In Spain, ETESA becomes the leader in wear parts, and led by a strong sales team expands into international markets.

At the same time ETESA begins to manufacture and market their bucket range for excavators of 1 to 30 tonnes.
Shell castingETESA begins to manufacture the majority of its range with shell casting moulding, allowing a reduction in lead time and providing a uniform finish.
New corporate headquarters in MadridETESA introduces its new state-of-the-art corporate headquarters boasting a bigger warehouse and manufacturing line. Proud of the journey so far, ETESA looks to the future with optimism to continue being a global brand of reference in the wear part sector.
The experience obtained over 50 years in steelmaking has resulted in compositions with excellent mechanical properties to match the type of terrain, application and working conditions.
ETE steels are high strength quality alloy steels with an optimal ratio between HARDNESS and TOUGHNESS. In addition, ETE steels are subjected to an exclusive heat treatment process that reduces impact breakages and increases resistance to wear under the most demanding working conditions.
COMPOSITION OF ETE STEELS
Traditionally, overall quality of the wear alloy steel has been measured by hardness with the view that the greater the hardness the higher the resistance to wear and therefore the longer the service life of the parts.
ETESA has developed their own heat treatment process applied to all their ETE steels. This process results in a tough steel with an even and consistent distribution of the hardness from the surface to the core of the part.
However, toughness is just as important as hardness. Toughness shows the steel’s ability to deform and absorb impact before breaking.
ETE steels are extraordinarily resistant to due to the grain in the steel that is homogeneous and free from impurities. This is obtained through ETESA´s heat treatment that guarantees optimal energy absorption upon impact. In addition, strict quality controls are performed to make sure that all parts are free from pores and fissures.
To obtain hard and tough steels, it is necessary to apply an additional heat treatment afterwards to allow the steels to reach their optimal state. The longer and more exhaustive this heat treatment process is, the greater quality and higher performing the steel becomes.
At ETESA all our wear parts are subjected to a thorough heat treatment process ETE3TT developed in-house at our own foundry in Spain. This treatment allows our steels to obtain great hardness while maintaining an optimum balance with impact breakage.
R&D and Quality control
At ETESA there are no shortcuts taken when it comes to quality for any of our wear solutions. Our highly qualified technical department oversees all our production processes and quality assurance.
Our team begins by designing the parts to be manufactured based on the individual demands and requests of our clients. We use state-of-the-art 3D scanning techniques, prototyping and the latest moulding software.
This allows us to obtain a graphic simulation to assess the performance of each part under different working conditions prior to production.
The quality control department ensures the highest standards from the production stage to delivery to our customers. Moulds are kept in perfect working condition. By performing thorough tests, both at the factory and later at our warehouses, we make sure all parts from the foundry are in optimal condition.
Every part supplied by ETESA comes with lifetime warranty against breakage – this is our commitment to you
