These modules are used daily by rotating machinery manufacturers and end-users for design, performance prediction, failure analysis, and troubleshooting. Applications for ARMD include rotating machinery such as a miniature air turbine for a dental drill, a large turbine generator set for a power plant, a small compressor for an air conditioner, a pump for an artificial heart, a fuel pump for a jet engine, an electric motor and spindle for a miniature computer hard disk, a canned pump for a petrochemical processing plant, synchronous motor driven drive-trains, and more.

ARMD for Windows incorporates advanced technical and user interface features with built-in help utilities in each of its modules to simplify modeling, analysis, presentation, and interpretation of results. Tutorial and step-by-step sample sessions with advanced graphical presentation are among the many features implemented in the software.
