Geislinger Gets DNV Type Approval for Vdamp

Geislinger received type approval for its recently introduced Vdamp product range by the classification society Det Norske Veritas. It also facilitates the use of Geislinger Dampers in 2-stroke applications, where the Vdamp protects the propeller or camshaft from damage by torsional vibrations. In such applications the damper is a crucial safety element and has to be classified, contrary to 4-stroke engines, where this is in general not the case. But also for these applications the DNV type approval for the Geislinger Vdamp provides a safe feeling…

Geislinger Unveils New Building

CEO Cornelius Geislinger, Architect Dr. Volkmar Burgstaller and managing director Matthias Geislinger More than 270 participants attended the inauguration of the new Geislinger premises. A guided tour through the headquarters and assembly facilities expressed the Geislinger-philosophy, "Couplings and Dampers. Built to last." "The new building should provide a new, expressive home to the Geislinger brand, thus creating an enhanced recognition of Geislinger in the public." said Cornelius Geislinger, CEO of the Geislinger GmbH. The next highlight in company history has already been announced: the 50th anniversary will be celebrated in 2008 and on this occasion a Geislinger book will be published.

Geislinger Expands Operations

Geislinger GmbH of Salzburg/Austria has launched several operations in Asia and North America within the last year. Geislinger develops and manufactures torsional vibration dampers and torsional elastic high damping steel spring couplings for large diesel and gas engines. Geislinger has 250 employees with annual revenue of approximately EUR 30 million. In September 2001 Geislinger Corporation was founded. It is a fully owned subsidiary of Geislinger GmbH and offers Sales and Engineering support, assembly of new Geislinger couplings and dampers as well as full After-Sales-Service of all Geislinger products in North America. The new facility is located on 14 acres of property in the Southwest of Michigan. It houses 3,500 sq.ft.

Geislinger Delivers Record Sized Coupling

biggest torsional elastic coupling. of 2.8 meters and a weight of 36.3 tonnes. were produced in the Geislinger works in Bad St. in the works in Salzburg. with an energy saving counter-rotating double propeller. rotation for the backwards running propeller. therefore the degree of effectiveness is increased by about 14%. prices. plus Geislinger coupling were supplied from the same shipyard. owners are completely satisfied with these cargo ships. systems were produced in Japan where now the largest one is to be built.

Propulsion Updates

Geislinger GmbH recently delivered its biggest torsional elastic coupling — a coupling with an outer diameter of 2.8-m and a weight of 36.3 tons. The coupling will be built into the drive line of a VLCC tanker, with an energy saving counter-rotating double propeller. More than 2,000 single parts were produced in the Geislinger works in Bad St. Leonhard and assembled in the works in Salzburg. The coupling transmits half of the 27,160 KW engine power at 74 rpm and in this way protects the gear box, which changes the direction of rotation for the backwards running propeller. This causes the energy of the swirling water in the gushing of the propeller to be used and therefore the degree of effectiveness is increased by about 14 percent.

Great Ships of 2001 -- NYK Lodestar

The design of the 6,200 TEU containership HN1367 for NYK features a maximum capacity of 6,422 TEU conforms to the now standard large container ship layout, with a short accommodation block and engine room approximately three-quarters aft, and seven holds forward and one aft of this position. The forward holds are dimensioned to accept 2 x 40 ft. containers (4 x TEU) in cell guides, and each is closed by two sets of lift-on/off pontoon covers comprising three transverse panels, while the aft holds with three sets of covers, can accept 3 x 40 ft. containers plus 1 x TEU, but otherwise restricted by the aft-body hull form. Containers are carried on the hatch covers over the full width of the vessel, and an additional FEU tier can be carried aft of No. 8 hold above the mooring deck.

Torsional Vibration Symposium: May 21-23, 2014

The 2014 Torsional Vibration Symposium, organized by the Vibration Association, is scheduled for May 21-23 in Salzburg Congress, Austria. The event aims to gather industry experts from around the world to discuss current torsional vibration developments, issues and technologies. The event will feature five informational sessions, an exhibition, gala dinner and many discussion/networking opportunities. Preliminary topics include torsional vibration aspects of combustion engines, powertrain components, applications and system behavior, fundamental engineering and torsional vibration calculation, torsional vibration measurement and rules and regulations.

First Torsional Vibration Symposium: May 21-23, 2014

Filling a perceived gap in the global calendar of technical gatherings in the power transmission sector, the first Torsional Vibration Symposium will be held from May 21-23, 2014 in Salzburg, Austria. The goal of the Symposium is to stage a unique event for experts involved with the subject matter from all over the world and from any affected branch of industry. The event is organized by the newly formed Vibration Association located in Salzburg and an Advisory Board of international experts.
