Engineering Tools

Comprehensive engineering tools as the basis for modern and accurate detail design

Our competent engineering teams from INDUREST, John Brown Voest and JBV-INDUREST Engineering have in-depth software know-how with a variety of planning tools at their disposal. This basis allows us, amongst other things, to provide the following services with state of the art Technology:

  • reliable process engineering process simulation
  • development of flow diagrams
  • arrangement and piping Engineering
  • preparation of stress calculations
  • issue of isometrics
  • development of construction parts and special constructions
  • creation of material lists and bills of quantities for the preparation of orders.

With the help of laser scanning processes, we are in the position to capture plants in their current status, produce 3D models of the scan views and plan the expansion or revamp of your plant considering the existing Equipment.
