The Engineering Department has capitalized on their expertise by developing a large portfolio of software to optimize the design of systems, pressure vessels, and heat exchangers. This software ensures the industrial refrigeration systems that CIMCO designs all meet the same high standards.
Engineering drawings are produced using AutoCAD, AutoCAD Electrical, Solidworks and Revit. Our North American networked data system allows instantaneous transfer of these drawings and bills of materials between Head Office and District Engineering operations. In addition, we constantly update our network with the latest versions of our supplier’s computerized selection programs, allowing quick and accurate optimization of equipment selection.
CIMCO Manufacturing utilizes computer programs developed by AspenTech B-JAC Computer Services. B-JAC provides engineering research and computer software services directed at the thermal and mechanical design of shell and tube and air cooled heat exchangers. The thermal and mechanical software provides the design of all classes of heat exchangers, including mechanical design, instantaneous pricing, as well as general arrangement and detail drawings. The B-JAC software is complemented by access to HTFS and HTRI, as well as numerous software programs developed in-house by our experienced staff of thermal and mechanical engineering specialists.
CIMCO engineers have been at the forefront of designing direct digital control (DDC) systems and programmable logic controllers (PLC) that are used in both packaged process units and field erected systems. This has involved in-house development of first-time applications, as well as integrating third party software into our custom designed control packages.
