Cabra Engineering performs computerised simulations in machinery and components.
The company provides conceptual design of valves before manufacturing them.
  • Engineering (mechanics, electronics and software, basic engineering, detailed engineering, piping, structures ) and simulation (structural, fluid dynamics calculation (CFD), rigid body, stress analysis) of:
    • Products (valves, actuators, plastic parts, etc)
    • Machinery (presses, furnaces, lifting equipment / cranes, machine tools, assembly lines and packaging, special vehicles, heat exchangers, machinery for steel and aluminium industries, etc)
    • Plants (chemical, petrochemical, energy)

In addition to specialised engineering services, the company supplies a range of utilities, such as:

  • Outsourcing (availability to develop onsite engineering activities)
  • Laboratory (performing range tests, response times, pressures of components such as valves, filters and actuators)
  • Supply (prototypes, components made with application lifecycle management (ALM) technology, components made of computer numerical control (CNC), equipment and machinery)

Cabra has been gained considerable experience in solving complex problems of structural and fluid-dynamic calculation supported by an advanced IT structure with the use of a powerful server computing. The company uses the following software:

  • Ansys CFX and CFDesign (thermo fluid-dynamic analysis)
  • Ansys (Structural and thermal analysis)
  • Caesar II (Stress analysis)
  • Pro/Engineer, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, Inventor (design)

In addition, Cabra provides advisory and consultancy services on norms and directives such as machinery directive, PED, ATEX and others according to ASME and ASTM.

Leak testing solutions

A number of components and systems must be leak tested to ensure leakages are below specified limits. Cabra Engineering provides a customised solution for every leakage problems, using a variety of test methods. The system includes the optimal hardware and software to meet the client requirements.

Available solutions for leak testing include test benches and machines (turnkey supply), devices such as sniffer aid systems (SAS), as well as customised communication software for leak testing instruments.

Cabra also performs onsite leak tests on components, machinery and / or equipment for the client.

The leak testing can be provided by using the following methods of measurement:

  • Micro flow rate
  • Pressure drop
  • Tracer gas in vacuum chamber
  • Tracer gas in ventilated chamber or probe sniffer
  • Tracer multi-gas, with probe multi gas sniffer
