When drafting new transformers, Gowanda has engineers on staff who are experts at custom transformer and inductor design. Our experts also provide input when we provide specialty services to our customers.

Our engineering design department:

      • works to understand the client’s needs – type of transformer, circuit requirements, finishing requirements, etc.
      • uses client specifications and input forms
      • creates a rough design for the specific transformer including size, capacity and hardware needs
      • contacts the client to discuss rough design – determining if there is a need for revision
      • determines & plans specific parts and specifications – defines all technical parts of transformer and process
      • communication with client is continuous when needed
