According to customers‘ demands on engineering services Laschet Consulting cooperates with external partners as part of a powerful „engineering network team“.
One major subject supported by our cooperation partner DAAMS GmbH is the structural mechanical analysis with modern FEM methods in order to optimize fatigue strength and durability of mechanical components. This helps to understand even complete and complex structures (e.g. the interaction between drive systems and foundation via supports; see the animation on the right of this web site).
Special rotordynamic analyses (optionally in connection with a fluid-film bearing analysis) are done in close cooperation with our US partner RBTS. More detailed information are on our special web site ROTORDYNAMICS (including ARMD Software Presentation).
Another important issue is the combination of CAE analysis methods on the one hand and professional measurements and testings on the other hand. We like to cooperate with external partners in order to provide a complete „customer engineering service package“ worldwide which does not only include the simulation but also the machine diagnosis and field testings or even the installation of a complete condition monitoring system. The model refinements or system optimization steps require a more detailed knowledge of the real system behavior which we get from field testings worldwide, prototype measurements, or test rig studies. This is an important additional service step as part of the complete VIRTUAL ENGINEERING process.
And in addition to this … we help promptly with CAE studies and measurements (in combination) if an urgent troubleshooting analysis is required. We can provide you with further information (references) on request.
