For more than 60 years, Geislinger products have proven themselves to be high-quality technology for marine applications, by improving the lifetime of various systems and successfully decreasing the total cost of ownership due to their long service life. When partnering with Geislinger, customers can rely on tailor-made and reliable product solutions, which are the best fit for each application, while optimizing the overall propulsion system. Geislinger develops and produces torsional vibration dampers, torsional elastic high-damping couplings, misalignment couplings, composite misalignment couplings, composite shaftlines, and torsional vibration monitoring systems for all kinds of high-performance marine drivelines.

With our tailor-made Geislinger torsional vibration damper solutions and our long-lasting experience and expertise, we will take on the challenge of any torsional vibration issue and will make your powertrain a safely running drivetrain system. The Geislinger Damper efficiently reduces engine excited torsional vibrations and therefore protects crankshafts, camshafts, intermediate shafts or propeller shafts, and other driveline components. The Geislinger Monitoring System enables continuous torsional vibration monitoring of the rotating components and detects critical overloads so that damage to the damper or other powertrain components can be avoided and downtimes can be reduced. Our Geislinger Torsional Elastic Coupling with its high-damping properties is the ideal solution for 2-stroke applications with a free end PTO and an integrated gearbox. Geislinger products improve the lifetime of 2-stroke systems and successfully decrease the total cost of ownership due to their long service life.
With more than 60 years of experience, Geislinger is the leading expert in providing solutions to reduce vibrations in powertrains. Our tailor-made torsional vibration dampers, torsional elastic high-damping couplings, misalignment couplings, composite misalignment couplings, composite shaftlines and torsional vibration monitoring systems are ideally suited for all kinds of advanced 4-stroke high-performance drivelines. Geislinger’s products protect the components in the driveline and ensure that the system is running smoothly even under harsh operating conditions. Our tailor-made solutions are certain to meet any and all requirements of even the toughest acoustic development challenges. Minimal cost of ownership, outstanding service life, and a very high level of reliability are the most important features of Geislinger products.
A compact and lightweight product design with electrically insulating properties and misalignment capabilities is the decisive factor for electric and hybrid applications. Geislinger provides customized and reliable powertrain solutions and is the preferred partner for innovating drive systems. In particular, the GESILCO® product line with its super lightweight misalignment couplings and shaftlines is ideally suited for electric and hybrid applications. Geislinger has more than 25 years of experience in developing and manufacturing products made from fiber composites. A weight reduction of up to 90% compared to standard solutions leads to a significant improvement in the dynamic drivetrain behavior.
Our maintenance-free GESILCO® carbon fiber shafting and misalignment coupling solutions offer operators a system with low weight, which in turn reduces the loads in propulsion components, such as gears and bearings, significantly. Soft mounted equipment shows high dynamic misalignments and Geislinger provides composite shafting and coupling systems to allow for axial, radial, and angular movement during operation. Outstanding shock capabilities and excellent acoustic attenuation underline the use of Geislinger products for vessels running at high speeds.
Challenging torsional vibration situations and high acoustic requirements plus the complexity of various operating modes require tailored and sophisticated coupling solutions. They need to be lightweight and in the case of electric motor drives they often need electric insulation properties as well. In addition, they have to offer a high misalignment capability to meet all present movements due to the extremely soft engine and gearbox arrangement. The solution for mega yacht applications is our Geislinger SILENCO® Acoustic Coupling, as it minimizes the transfer of structure-borne noise significantly while transmitting even high power levels. Due to our holistic system approach, Geislinger can provide innovative powertrain solutions for mega yachts.
