ACTech GmbH, headquartered in Freiberg/Saxony, is a leading service provider in the manufacturing of casting prototypes made of light metal-, cast iron- and cast steel alloys. The foundation of the company in 1995 was based on the development of the worldwide patented process for laser-sintering of Croning® mold material for the rapid production of sand casting moulds. Thanks to the combination of various Rapid Prototyping technologies, ACTech is able to produce casting prototypes whose properties are nearly identical with those of the series parts, as well as small batch parts. Equipped with the latest 3D-CAD systems, tactile and optical 3D surveying, in-house material and casting test facility, and 13 CNC machining centres, ACTech offers everything necessary from the initial concept in product engineering to the prototype part ready to be mounted.
Among ACTechs worldwide customers are companies from the automotive industry, aircraft industry, vehicle construction, and electrical engineering, as well as device-, machine- and plant construction. In 2014, ACTech was ranked number 32 out of 3,300 German medium sized companies by the strategic-consulting agency Munich Strategy Group.
