bill check shirt desk 2AEC Magnetics has more than 60 years of industrial magnetics experience.  We've been designing, building and providing world-class magnetic automation solutions for manufacturing since 1961.  Our president, Bill Klaus, designs our power supplies, controls, electromagnets and magnetic tools; he's been at it since 1981.  Bill is the best at knowing how magnets behave in manufacturing and industrial environmets. Put Bill's tremendous experience to the test to see what he can do for you!

Richard M. Klaus founded AEC Magnetics in 1961, pioneering the use of electromagnetics in automation. Since then, we've developed tens of thousands of custom and stock magnetic solutions to lift, hold, bundle, sift, transfer and handle ferrous materials for our customers' manufacturing processes. Bill is Richard's son. He joined AEC after graduation from The Ohio State University with dual degrees in business and engineering. Bill has spent his entire career designing and building automation solutions at AEC. Please read our interesting story here, there is really no other like it!  

Don't waste your time searching the Internet, click here to contact Bill Klaus at AEC.  Bill doesn't sell magnets, he provides solutions. Bill has seen it, designed it or repaired it. Another great thing about Bill is he genuinely enjoys talking to customers and learning about their businesses.  He'll take all the time necessary to understand what you need before offering a safe, affordable, guaranteed magnetic solution. Or, he might explain why a magnetic solution may not work for you. 

aec power supply nobgAEC Magnetics power supplies, magnetic tools, permanent magnets and electromagnets--from small end-of-arm-tooling for electromagnets to large electromagnets that lift, bundle and transfer material--are in service at factories and manufacturing facilities worldwide. We hand-make our electromagnets out of top-grade components. Forged eyebolts, high-grade copper, the best epoxy available. AEC cores are hand-wound, wiring hand-soldered piece by piece. Every AEC magnet is tested before it leaves our dock, and is guaranteed to work as promised when it gets to your door.  

AEC is also an original importer of permanent magnets from China, building the industry's most reliable supply chain of producers and suppliers long before other companies. Purchasing an AEC magnet ensures no substitutions in grade or quality. With our more than 60 years of industrial magnetics experience, you can be sure you are getting the "real deal," not some cheap imitation. AEC Magnetics' 60+ years, and Bill Klaus's 40+ years, of magnetics and material handling experience is a tremendous advantage over our competitors.
