ROTORDYNAMIC SIMULATIONS (i.e. analysis of flexural and lateral vibrations including bearing influence) are another subject area as part of the engineering service. These CAE studies include the calculation of critical speeds and acceptable operating conditions while considering the shaft design and above all the characteristics of the ball, roller bearings, or the fluid-film bearings, respectively. The analysis also includes the study of torsional vibrations as an option.
Starting with smaller studies, which can be realized in a short time, you can „upgrade“ the engineering service step by step even up to a complete study, design and configuration of complex fluid-film bearings (journal, conical, thrust, tilting-pad bearings).
Laschet Consulting is official cooperation partner of RBTS, Inc. (U.S.A.) (www.rbts.com). We provide software and engineering support in close cooperation with RBTS – usually realized in efficient WebEx meetings.

The simulation software “ARMD” designed by RBTS is a very powerful CAE tool which is distributed and supported in Germany and Europe by Laschet Consulting.
Non-binding LIVE presentations can be arranged individually supported by an online meeting via Cisco Webex. There is also an option to download a “demonstration version” of ARMD for free – just to get a better “look & like” feeling. Please contact us for the download link.

We would like to inform you on the next International Rotordynamics Seminar & Short Course (ONLINE & LIVE event). This seminar is an offer in close cooperation with our partner RBTS – and it is unique in Europe and well accepted by many international attendees for more than 15 years.
Please visit our special seminar site for detailed information on the next seminar in Cologne including online registration: Information on our next INTERNATIONAL ROTORDYNAMICS SEMINAR
In close cooperation with our partner RBTS we offer an Online ARMD Training Course (via Cisco Webex) any time (language: ENGLISH; duration: usually 8 hours in total). Such a course is offered dedicated to one of the ARMD packages the customer ordered (ROTLAT, TORSION, BEARINGS). The course is usually structured in two parts on two subsequent days directly presented by RBTS (U.S.A.).
Due to the time-zone shift such a course can only start at 08:00 a.m. or 09:00 a.m. US time (at the earliest); i.e. for central Europe: training start not earlier than 14:00 or 15:00 (UTC+1 / summer: UTC+2) in the afternoon.
Depending on customer demands, such a training course can be structured individually according to your demands. Please contact us.
Independent of a software training course we also offer a custom-tailored engineering service concerning your current project. Please send us your inquiry (submission of your inquiry).
