Applications

Woodworking

For over 30 years, KEB drive and control products have powered high-performance woodworking machinery. KEB drives control a wide variety of motor types, including spindle motors, linear motors, and servo motors. KEB offers many functional safety options, including open-loop safety and FSoE (Failsafe over EtherCAT) networked drives.

Spindle Drives

KEB's installed base of over 500,000 spindle drives speaks to our expertise in controlling these critical devices. KEB offers asynchronous and synchronous motor solutions that feature drives with high-frequency outputs and optional liquid cooling heatsinks.

Safe and High Performance

Functional Safety

KEB drives have been developed with Functional Safety in mind. Onboard STO and Safe Motion functions are TUV certified to a PLe (SIL3) level. This allows the woodworking machines to operate safely with high throughput. Networked FSoE options reduce discrete wiring and increase the availability of drive diagnostics.

Sinewave Filters

System Solutions

KEB is a complete automation solution provider. Everything from the HMI to PLC to drive and motor filtering. KEB Sinewave filters are critical for high-frequency applications. They lower motor heating, allowing more usable power output. This allows the woodworking machines to operate with the highest possible throughput.
