Since being established back in 1977, ACE has developed into a leading engineering and consultancy firm. Services include conceptualization, development, design, engineering and prototyping. ACE offers a custom orientated comprehensive approach that is characterized by excellent problem-solving skills and a high level of decisiveness. It is ACE’s mission to professionally develop and engineer products, machines, systems, equipment and constructions for innovative customers. They vary from startup’s to SME and to large industrial enterprises and knowledge institutes.

Business units

ACE embeds its technological knowledge and competences in 4 d·edicated business units:

  • industrial automation
  • hightech systems
  • product development
  • construction technology

Hightech systems

The business unit hightech systems’ core competence is (re-)designing of advanced systems, such as mechanical design, mechatronic design of complex systems, (sub-) modules, parts and related tooling.

Way of working

ACE contributes to the customer’s project from specification up to engineering and realisation of prototype and pilot production, cd while never losing sight of feasibility and production techniques in the industrialisation phase. The multidisciplinary character turns our business unit High-Tech Systems into a mature engineering partner. This business unit provides its services to customers linked to high-tech industries such as OEM, system suppliers and knowledge and research institutions.

Mechanical development

In the domain of mechanical development ACE provides a solid knowledge of design principles for accurate moving and positioning. Our specialists have a multi- disciplinaryknowledge of measurement and control technology, actuators and sensors for motion control.


One area of expertise of ACE hightech systems is designing infrastructure for transportation of gasses and fluids from and to the receiving modules for complete temperature control and conditioning of systems. The infrastructure for (ultra-) high vacuum is also part of ACE’s expertise. Aspects like contamination control are taken into consideration in the design as well as the design guidelines and prescriptions for application in clean rooms. ACE also develops tooling for fabrication, assembly, testing, qualification and service of these systems.
