2008 Geneva, CERN- Nuclear Research Centre

In 2008, the particle accelerator of the European nuclear research centre CERN started operation, one of the biggest and most complex machines in this world. The extremely high performance of the accelerator is expected to push back the frontiers of knowledge in physics so as to find the last and decisive missing particle for the standard model of particle physics.

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.

The storage ring in which the experiments are carried out has a length of 27 km and lies 100 m below the surface. The construction cost of only the storage ring amounted to 3 billion euros.

In 1999 reinforced and unreinforced Calenberg Perforated™ Bearings 205 were used to support the tubes. Clients commented on Calenberg Ingenieure being the only company which presented suitable solutions.
