About us

RATEC is trendsetter in the development and production of magnetic formwork technology. For any formwork assignment we develop the suitable solution for you. Our standard solutions have proven their worth in tough practical testing.

From the switchable magnet box up to complete formwork solutions for automated circulation plants, RATEC’s ideas have decisively shaped and influenced precast concrete production in the past 20 years. With RATEC’s innovative upcrete® technology almost any conceivable precast concrete element geometry can be realized by pumping concrete into the mold from below.

The upcrete® battery system, 3D-module mold, UPP pump station and the universal concrete inlet UCI are the main components. The flexibility of the system offers unique potentials for shaping, dimensions and economy – while at the same time achieving top quality and all sides smooth surfaces.

Benefit from our experience and flexibility. Meet the better ideas!

Magnetic formwork technology

Magnetic formwork technology

Profit from the benefits of leading formwork technology. RATEC develops and produces shuttering systems, shuttering magnets, assembly magnets and special formwork solutions according to the requirements of precast concrete plants and the individual customer’s needs, with the main objective to lower installation costs and to improve the quality of precast concrete elements.

upcrete® technology

upcrete® technology

With upcrete® RATEC introduced a new dimension of precast concrete element quality. Almost every imaginable precast concrete element geometry can be manufactured with upcrete® in one work operation. For this, self-compacting concrete is pumped from below into a (partially) closed form. The flexibility of the system offers unique possibilities for design, element geometry and production process – with maximum quality and formwork-smooth surfaces on all sides at the same time.

upcrete® Modular Housing

upcrete® Modular Housing

Based on RATEC's innovative upcrete® technology, the company successfully realized a modular housing production concept with the potential to revolutionize housing with prefabricated concrete elements. The basic idea is the production of a monolithic room module with floor, 4 walls and beams in one piece, including plumbing, wiring and sanitary fixtures and fittings. It is then complemented by the roof, separating walls, stairs, which are concreted in separate molds and assembled on site.
