2014 Munich, Technology Centre Knorr-Bremse

To the Knorr-Bremse Group, worldwide market leader in brake systems for rail and commercial vehicles, the new technology centre represents a modern workplace for around 1500 employees. The manufacturing area requires machines that can work to the highest precision to ensure the brake systems work properly when urgently needed.

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.

Calenberg Ingenieure's tried-and-tested technology was selected to give the required protection to these highly sensitive areas, as well as for similar bearings in other parts of the centre. The isolation of horizontal vibrations was achieved with compression studded mats, which ensure low natural frequencies of around 10 Hz over a large compression stress range.

Vertical isolation of the machine foundations is achieved using Cisador Type C, a closed cell EPDM material, guaranteeing effective isolation of up to 96 % at natural frequencies of around 10 Hz.
