Engineering SEMINAR

New Seminar in Preparation for 2023


Online LIVE Seminar & Short Course

ROTORDYNAMICS + BEARINGS in Rotating Machinery

including an optional ARMD Training Course

Presentation of the Theoretical Background
including many Practical Applications and Case Studies

New date will be announced !

Seminar Language: ENGLISH

A cooperation between RBTS, USA and Laschet Consulting, Germany


This International Seminar & Short Course is dedicated to engineers and technical managers who are in­volved in ROTATING MACHINERY DYNAMICS design, operation, maintenance, diagnosis, and trouble shooting, with emphasis on machinery rotor dynamics (LATERAL VIBRA­TION analysis), drive train dynamics (TORSIONAL VIBRA­TION analysis), and bearing systems (FLUID-FILM BEARINGS).

Course coverage of the field is illustrated by the presen­tation of real life case histories and the application of advanced technologies for the modeling, analyses, and trouble shooting real life bearings and vibration problems.

This seminar is a TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER SEMINAR and is there­fore dedicated to all engineers interested in the dynamics of rotating machinery, independent of the use of a software tool. No previous experiences in rotor­dynamics are required – just register and come to the seminar to under­stand the world of vibra­tions, and above all how to solve and avoid vibration problems in rotating machinery.

In the previous years most of the seminar attendees for our in-person seminars in Cologne (Germany) came from Europe as well as from the Near and Middle East, India, and Asia. Thus, this seminar is really an INTERNA­TIONAL event; you should not miss this pro­fessional course of great repu­tation and lively exchange of expe­riences among the partici­pants.
