including ARMD Software Presentation

  • Torsional Vibrations

  • Flexural Vibrations

  • Lateral Vibrations

  • Fluid-Film Bearings

  • Rolling Element Bearings


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. Starting with smaller studies, which can be realized in a short time, you can „upgrade“ the engineering service step by step even uo 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.) ( We provide software and engineering support in close cooperation with RBTS – often realized in connection with efficient online meetings (via WebEx). Down­load (PDF) further infor­mation on the coopera­tion between Laschet Consulting and RBTS.


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. Presentations and training sessions can be arranged individually – often supported by an online meeting as well (WebEx).

More details and applications with this software will be presented soon on this web site. You can find further detailed information on the ARMD software modules at RBTS‘ website:

We are going to inform you on the next international rotordynamic seminar & short course in Europe (Cologne, Germany) as soon as possible. This seminar is another example of the close cooperation with RBTS.
