KEMET’s Technological Capabilities Around the World

By Per Loof, August 7, 2015​​​​

Every day, in every part of the world, technology reshapes how we connect, work, communicate, travel, explore, use energy and provide medical care. And when these technologies require advancements in electronic components, KEMET helps make it possible. KEMET products are in the sky, in your hand, on the ground, in the air, in the cloud and in our bodies. We manufacture electronic components that store, regulate and filter electrical energy; help solve electronic problems; and allow for innovation in anything that plugs in, turns on/off or uses a battery.

Our engineers, scientists and technologists have long been at the forefront of the development of new products used in a range of industries. We have 33 PhD scientists focused on technology, how to advance it and take it to new levels. We have 501 engineers, busy developing new processes and products that we build in one of our 21 plants around the world. At any given time, we have several dozen development projects in the pipe—leading the innovation on the world’s most advanced electrical solutions. KEMET was granted a record number of 20 U.S. patents in fiscal year 2015. In addition to new patents, KEMET’s innovation has driven more than 12,000 new products this past year and a stream of new processes and platform releases. Our deep understanding of customer applications and a wide range of technologies provides our engineers a significant advantage over our competitors. Technology is one of the priorities listed among KEMET's Guiding Principles. An example of KEMET's technology leadership in the science and engineering of capacitance solutions can be found on our Technical Articles page.

Additionally, we have innovation centers located around the world. As a result of our global technological capabilities, we are able to offer our customers the broadest selection of capacitor technologies in the industry, along with an expanding range of electromechanical devices, electromagnetic compatibility solutions and supercapacitors. Click here for a guide of how our products are used in applications and your favorite electronic devices. From redesigning existing electronic components, to inventing all-new component capabilities, KEMET is committed to expanding the possibilities for customers around the world.
