Elasticity from Getzner for New Warr Hyperloop

High-Speed Capsule Travels Through Vacuum Tunnel on Elastic Bearings

A Hyperloop is the concept of a high-speed vehicle that is transported through a pipe in a vacuum, similar to a pneumatic tube. Getzner is playing its part in the project’s success by providing a vibration protection for solution for the track.

Sylomer elastic bearings are used between a concrete slab and the central rail. This polyurethane high-tech material from Getzner introduces a defined elasticity to the track along a length of 300 m and a width of 125 mm, meaning that uniform deflection is guaranteed at high speeds. The material also serves as a compensation layer to balance out the unevenness of the concrete slab.

The Warr Hyperloop by TU Munich – an initiative by the Scientific Workgroup for Rocketry and Space Flight (Warr) – is in with an excellent chance according to those involved in the project. The original idea for the Hyperloop was first publicised by Elon Musk, founder of electric car manufacturer Tesla and the private space exploration company SpaceX. Compared to conventional modes of transport, the Hyperloop is not only more ecologically beneficial, but also safer, faster and cheaper. To promote its development, SpaceX launched the international SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition for students in 2015. The goal is to one day transport capsules, powered by ecologically beneficial electricity generated from solar power, through a vacuum tunnel at speeds of up to 1125 km/h.
