Field Of Activity[edit]

KEBA-Headquarter in Linz

In the field of industrial automation, Keba focuses on automation of machines and mobile automation. Keba develops and produces control systems and mobile terminals. In the field of automation of machines, Keba has solutions like the KemroPlast for injection molding or KemroMotion for robotic systems.

Twenty percent of the turnover are spent on research and development. That quota is the basis for new products like the KePol - paket machines, where it is possible to receive or send parcels 24/7. Seven hundred of these stations were placed Germany-wide for the Deutsche Post. Similar KEBA-manufactured systems were installed in Denmark and Austria.

For the field of bank and service automation, Keba develops and manufactures solutions for the money industry, parcel logistics and lottery companies. After several years of research a product family which can handle all bank routine transactions like deposits, payments, transfers and payment slip transactions, was created. Since 1992 Keba uses a special "recycling system", which makes it possible to create a money cycle in the machine. That means in the KePlus R6 and the KePlus X6 coins and banknotes may be given out after they were paid in.

The lottery terminals from Keba are used by the Austrian lottery, and since 2006, also by the Spanish lottery.
