KEB America, Inc.

KEB America, Inc. is located outside Minneapolis, MN and supports the North American market.  KEB America has grown steadily since its beginning in the 80’s.  Today, KEB America has 100 employees in engineering, production, application sales, service and administration.

KEB America’s facility is ISO 9001:2008 certified and has a footprint of 86,000 sq.ft.  2003 marked a significant milestone when KEB America began inverter production.  Today, inverters from the F5 and R6 line regenerative product lines are assembled and tested at the Shakopee facility.  Local production allows responsive leadtimes for customers and the ability to customize with application software or complete panel solutions.

Mechanical products used in demanding applications like medical robots and hoists continue to be growth drivers.  KEB America has a team of mechanical design engineers who can create custom brake and clutch solutions based on customer requirements.  An example of a custom mechanical product is a recently released spring-set load brake for the Theatre and Stage industry.  The product extends to 1,500Nm and has many performance features like noise reduction and a microswitch that are found in the type 38 series.

KEB America’s service team is crucial to supporting all KEB products that are installed in North America.  A team of 4 technicians work closely with KEB’s Global Service team to ensure that worldwide service and support is seamless.  Expedited repair services are offered which allow customers to get operational in critical applications.  In some scenarios, repairs can even be completed in the field.
