bill check shirt desk 2AEC Magnetics will enter its 63rd year of designing, building and solving industrial magnetics and power supply solutions for automation April 1, 2023. Shortly after that, Bill Klaus will celebrate 41 years of designing, building and solving industrial magnetics and power solution for automation here at AEC. No one comes remotely close to offering applied magnetics automation experience as AEC Magnetics and Bill Klaus.  

Put us to the test to see what our experience can do for you!

Founded by Richard M. Klaus, AEC Magnetics pioneered magnetics in automation. It has developed tens of thousands of custom and stock magnetic solutions that lift, hold, bundle, sift, transfer and handle ferrous materials in their manufacturing processes. Dick's son, Bill, joined AEC upon graduation from The Ohio State University with dual degrees in business and engineering. He has spent his entire career designing and building automation solutions, all at AEC. Please read our interesting story here, there is really no other like it!  

Call Bill Klaus.  He genuinely enjoys learning about, and solving, automation challenges.  Bill's depth and breadth of knowledge is unmatched in the industry. He genuinely enjoys learning about, and solving, automation challenges. Bill is known for giving customers all the time necessary to explain their application.  He will listen carefully to understand every facet, before offering a safe, affordable, guaranteed magnetic solution. Or, he might explain why a magnetic solution may not work for you.  Either way, be confident that Bill does not sell magnets, he provides solutions.

aec power supply nobgAEC Magnetics power supplies, magnetic tools, permanent magnets and electromagnets--from small electromagnets that serve robotics' end of arm tooling to large electromagnets that lift, bundle and transfer material--are in service at factories and manufacturing facilities throughout the world.  We hand-make our electromagnets out of top-grade components. Forged eyebolts, high-grade copper, the best epoxy available. Cores are hand-wound, wiring hand-soldered piece by piece.. And AEC tests every magnet that it makes and guarantees every magnet will work as promised. 

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.

Please call and talk to Bill,Bill Klaus AEC President Desk or any of our AEC Magnetics specialists.   We will find just the right magnetic solution for you--an affordable, reliable and safe solution that is guaranteed or your money back. This is how we are truly different from our competitors.   Bill will tell you AEC was founded to specifically to offer quality magnetic solutions, one customer at a time.  We are flattered to have many imitators, but for 60 years, if it's been magnetic, it's been AEC. For tens of thousands of industrial magnetics applications, if it's magnetic, it's AEC. As Bill says, "Anyone can sell you a magnet, but no one can sell you a better magnetic solution than we can."
