Customer Support

In an industry in which no two customers’ product needs or operating parameters are exactly alike, Cowan relies on a highly collaborative approach in which all operating units work closely together, both internally and with each customer. The result? Great solutions. Consistent product performance and reliability. Exceptional service and support.
Our inside and outside sales and account management team brings extensive engineering and technical expertise to each new application.

Our sales department works with clients to identify their exact application needs. Quotations and solution proposals are prepared in liaison with our design team, which assists in pricing and developing preliminary design concepts.

Design & Engineering

Cowan’s electrical and mechanical engineering group develops innovative design solutions that add significant automation and functionality to our actuation and process control systems. Clients have the best of both worlds: the flexibility of a highly specialized custom design shop together with full-scale manufacturing and testing facilities, all under one roof.

icylinder

Using SolidWorks 3D, Automation Studio and other specialized design software, the design team enables Cowan to provide fully integrated design, testing and engineering services.

From CAD simulations through to factory and site acceptance testing, Cowan’s design and production teams collaborate through each stage of the production cycle.

HMI

Application-specific Human Machine Interface (HMI) design puts control process data and functionality at the user’s fingertips.

Manufacturing & Assembly

To achieve maximum cost efficiency without compromising product quality and performance, Cowan’s fully integrated, ISO 9001-registered manufacturing technologies and processes are designed to accommodate high-volume manufacturing as well as short-run custom components and systems.

To ensure tight coordination internally as well as with customer shipping schedules, we use automated workflow software to track and report on all components as they move through each stage of production.

Research & Testing

From CAD-based simulations to rigorous pre- and post-production analysis and inspection, our ISO 9001-registered R&D and testing resources enable us to ensure our clients that every component and system they receive will perform to specification.  New products such as the AT series are subjected to millions of cycles of rigorous testing to ensure optimal performance in customer environments.
