1989 Hamburg, DESY Research Centre

The German electron synchrotron DESY is a research centre for fundamental scientific research. The main areas of research are development, construction and operation of particle accelerators.

Calenberg Ingenieure designs, manufactures and markets elastomeric sliding bearings, and statically or dynamically loaded structural bearings (elastomeric bearings) for buildings and structures, sub-ballast mats and trackbed mats for track construction as well as other elastomer-based products for noise insulation and environmental protection.

In 1989 the circular accelerator with a perimeter of 6336 m was put into operation, the world's largest at the time. For experimental purpose of the super electron microscope HERA, magnets of up to 500 t were supported on steel reinforced Calenberg Perforated™ Bearings.

Calenberg Ingenieure designs, manufactures and markets elastomeric sliding bearings, and statically or dynamically loaded structural bearings (elastomeric bearings) for buildings and structures, sub-ballast mats and trackbed mats for track construction as well as other elastomer-based products for noise insulation and environmental protection.

Right up to now the bearings work perfectly. They ensure the load transfer according to the design without damage and guarantee as well the required movement tolerances for shear deformations and rotations of the components of the facility.
