What clients say:

I have been using XLRotor since 2001. XLRotor is by far the best rotordynamic software on the market. What sets XLRotor apart from others are 1) robust with virtually no bugs, 2) ultra-fast calculation enables quick resolution to analysis problems, 3) comes with many bearing/seals programs, 4) top-rate and unmatched technical support, 5) versatility in modeling, and 6) annual upgrades include useful add-on’s and tools. I strongly recommend XLRotor to any engineering practitioner responsible for bearing/seal/rotordynamics analysis.
