Alignment propulsion Computer Aided Engineering


ShaftDesigner is our multi-project, multi-shaft and multi-state 3d Computer Aided Engineering system for ship propulsion train calculations. The ShaftDesigner software uses a base model to calculate shaft alignment, whirling vibration, bending (lateral) vibration, axial vibration and torsional vibration.

The ShaftDesigner software's main features are:

  • 3D graphical environment for easy visual checks
  • Base model for quick recalculations
  • Multiple modelling possibilities for different purposes
  • Various shaft alignment calculation methods
  • Calculations for various types of vibrations
  • Customizable reports with export options

We also offer shaft alignment and vibration calculations as a service.
Look under Engineering Services for more information about this service.
