automation meets CO2 snow cleaning
ecotec GmbH is created as a manufacturer of assembly lines for watch and precision mechanics from the production facilities of Uhrentechnik Schwarzwald (U.T.S.).
The ecotec GmbH replaces more and more manual activities in production lines by automatic solutions and becomes specialist for automatic piston soldering for the automotive and electrical industry.
Foundation of acp – advanced clean production GmbH as a spin-off of the Stuttgart-based Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA)
ecotec has established itself as a manufacturer of automatic systems for electromechanical products in automotive and electrical engineering: cycle time 3 seconds, complex production systems.
acp GmbH for the first time supplies automated CO2 snow blasting applications for the selective cleaning of highly sensitive high-tech products.
Takeover of ecotec GmbH by ACI and renaming of ecotec GmbH to ACI ecoTec GmbH & Co. KG
ACI ecotec supplies, among other things, assembly systems for the manufacture of injection technology, solenoid valves, overmolded stamping grids and micro stepper motors.
ACI ecoTec GmbH supplies components and production plants for crystalline and thin-film photovoltaics.
For the first time acp GmbH supplies large-area cleaning solutions for the cleaning of bumpers before painting.
ACI ecoTec GmbH builds special systems for a novel contacting and interconnection of high-performance photovoltaic modules.
acp GmbH produces cleaning modules for plastic add-on parts in the first electric car production in Germany and replaces the traditional wet cleaning.
Foundation of ACI AG and focus on assembly and process systems for mechatronics, medical technology and precision engineering.
