Rotordynamic analysis is designed to validate original builds for OEMs or to diagnose problems and propose the correct solutions for end users.

Upon receipt of the relevant rotor and coupling information from the OEM or end user, the engineers at Waukesha Bearings and Bearings Plus build a rotor model and analyze the bearings and seals using proprietary codes. The customer is then presented with a comprehensive report of the findings depending on the type and scope of analysis performed, typically either lateral rotordynamic analysis or torsional rotordynamic analysis.

Waukesha Bearings and Bearings Plus are able to perform rotordynamic analysis for a wide array of rotating equipment, including compressors, steam and gas turbines, expanders (radial turbines), turbochargers, microturbines, motors, generators, pumps, gearboxes, propulsion shafts, blowers and fans.
