Jake Wattenphul | October 1st, 2022

This is an overview of electro-mechanical manufacturing at KEB America. With a rich, 50-year history of designing and manufacturing brake and clutch solutions for automated machines, this is only half of what we offer to customers today. KEB controls, variable frequency drives, and gearmotors offer customers in North America and around the world with a full portfolio of industrial automation solutions. We continue to add new equipment, refine our processes, and improve our production capabilities to meet the needs of our customers. 

Some of the more recently commissioned equipment, such as the bar-fed, twin-turret, and twin-spindle machine in the video below helps us increase throughput and offer high-quality products in a very efficient process. This is just one instance where KEB America is pushing forward with a constant appetite for improved processes and better solutions to serve our customers more effectively. 



The video tour below gives you a walkthrough tour of the manufacturing and assembly areas at KEB America focused on our electromagnetic brake and clutch products. Many process improvement have been made since the video below was released, but most of the steps in our manufacturing remains the same or similar to what is shown below.



From raw bar stock to finished product, we are established as a leader in magnetic brake and clutch manufacturing for industrial, medical and aerospace applications.

We design, build and test our proprietary mechanical brakes and clutches in our 150,000 sq. ft., Shakopee, Minnesota, ISO 9001:2015 facility. The North American market has access to our application engineers who are ready to help you find the specific solution you need for your machine systems.

We continue to expand our brake and clutch manufacturing at KEB America to better serve our customers. We will never stop refining our processes, purchasing ever capable machines, automating mundane tasks with cobots and the new bar-feeding CNC machine, while continuing to ensure the quality of our products through testing and handling shipping to our valued clients.
