Getzner – engineering a quiet futureFounded in 1969 as a subsidiary of Getzner, Mutter & Cie, Getzner Werkstoffe is one of the leading specialists in vibration protection. Solutions from Getzner are used in the rail, construction and industry sectors to reduce vibrations and noise, improve the service life of bedded components and minimise the need for maintenance and repairs on tracks, vehicles, structures and machines. The elastic bearings are based on the materials Sylomer® and Sylodyn®, both of which were developed and manufactured in Buers, Austria.
Elastic Solutions for Superstructure
The variety and intensity of modern rail traffic means that the availability, comfort and environmental demands on rail systems are growing dynamically. One of the main problems associated with railways are the vibrations transmitted from the track superstructure to the nearby surroundings. These vibrations can often be felt and heard. Another significant problem is the maintenance needs resulting from wear and tear on the materials, due to insufficient elasticity in the track. Highly elastic products and systems for isolating vibrations can lead to substantial reductions in maintenance costs for both the components of the track superstructure and the vehicles that use it.
The products developed by Getzner are perfect for meeting the requirements of all axle loads and speeds. Combined with the specialized services provided by Getzner engineers, the company is able to offer a comprehensive, complete product, which sets the industry standard around the world.
Rolling Stock Engineering
Getzner has developed special solutions for the mounting of floating floors and components in order to increase travelling comfort and reduce life cycle costs of train carriages.
Getzner's floating floors for rolling stock efficiently isolate vibrations. They protect carriages from undesirable vibrations during the journey: structural vibrations significantly decrease, which in turn considerably extends the service life of the carriage and its components. Other sources of disturbance such as compressors can also be decoupled in an efficient manner with Sylomer® and Sylodyn®.
Getzner has also developed a special solution for freight cars to protect sensitive goods: thanks to their combined spring/damper properties, hard-wearing PU mats made from Sylomer® offer optimum protection against shocks and impacts. This means, for example, that cost savings can now be made in the transport of steel coils used in the automotive industry.
