2-Stroke Engines
2-Stroke Engines
2-stroke marine drivetrain systems have to deal with several challenges, influencing the dynamic behavior and the torsional vibrations of a system.

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 safe 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 a continuous torsional vibration monitoring of the rotating components, and detects critical overloads so that damage to the damper or other powertrain component 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.

High-performance marine driveline applications in various powertrain configurations often have to deal with several load impacts, influencing the dynamic behavior and the torsional vibrations of the driving components.

With more than 60 years 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 shaft lines 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 the system is running smoothly even under harsh operating conditions. Even the strongest development targets with respect to engine acoustics can be reached with our tailor-made solutions. Minimal cost of ownership, outstanding service life and a very high level of reliability are the most important features of Geislinger products.

Electric & Hybrid
Electric & Hybrid
Innovative electric and hybrid drive systems demand sophisticated solutions.

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 shaft lines 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.

High-Speed Ferries
High-Speed Ferries
Innovative engineering solutions are advancing vessel designs. For state-of-the-art high-speed vessels, weight, reliability, and serviceability are the most important considerations.

Our maintenance-free Gesilco® carbon fiber shafting and misalignment coupling solutions offer operators the system with low weight and along with that unique weight saving also the bearing loads in adjacent propulsion components, such as gears or bearings are reduced 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.

Yachts
Yachts
Modern couplings for mega yachts need to fulfill various tasks.

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 the structure-borne noise significantly while transmitting even high-power levels. Due to our holistic system approach, Geislinger is able to provide innovative Powertrain Solutions for mega yachts.
