Industrial Magnetics Manufacturing | AEC Magnetics

0 Papa sepia 300Cincinnatian Richard Klaus incorporated AEC April 1, 1961, three days after the death of the wildly successful Cincinnati inventor Powel Crosley,  whose clever gadgets, appliances and radios seemed to leap off the drawing board into every American home. Any and everyone with even a modicum of engineering and entrepreneurial sense caught invention fever, including Mr. Klaus.  Fresh from inventing the automatic shutoff valve for gasoline pump hoses, Mr. Klaus saw little risk in becoming a magnet magnate. Queen City's river meant economical shipping and its 72-square miles were jam-packed with factories-full of potential customers.

Though clever and affordable, Mr. Klaus's magnetic gadgets were not the main attraction. AEC's ingenious magnetic automation solutions saved factories time and money,  improved safety and worked as promised. Customers loved his genuine curiousity and willingness to "take all day or all week" answering their questions.  

This remains the hallmark of AEC today.   AEC Honor 50years 300

William  Klaus, Richard’s son, an Ohio State University mechanical engineer with a dual degree in logistics, serves as AEC president today. Bill has spent  his career to designing and building automated manufacturing solutions with the same interest, precision and care. “Anyone can sell a magnet, especially with the internet,” Bill said. “But the internet, or salesperson, can not always tell you how a magnet will work in different applications. I've spent my whole life working with customers, listening to and understanding applications and respecting their budget and time concerns.  I can confidently recommend safe, strong, affordable magnetic solutions for virtually any automation process. This is important, because I hear from so many customers totally frustrated with the back-and-forth, trial-and-error of figuring it out on their own or through others who aren't magnetics specialist.  We can, and do, eliminate that immediately."

Ohio’s 129th General Assembly commended AEC and the Klauses April 1, 2011, for 50 successful years and wished the company good fortune for the future. “E-commerce may expand competitors' sales, but we will remain focused on personal technical help.  With more than one-half century of magneticss and automation experience, we are are fast and accurate finding you a solution.  No salesmen or switchboards, no explaining and re-explaining.  We've been taking the time to listen, answer questions and offer solid magnetic solutions since 1961.  You will not find more personal service in the industry." AEC also works with design engineers to incorporate its magnets into end-of-arm-tooling, robotics, separation equipment, lifting, safety door applications, conveying, bundling, stacking and any project that may benefit from the safety, durability, reliability and affordability of magnetic automation versus noisy and expensive pneumatics.
