All About the LAP-L Platform

GTE Engineering's LAP-L Platform is the solution for medical and pharmaceutical companies looking for a scalable solution for assembling and packaging products in the medical and pharmaceutical industry. Thanks to the innovative and intuitive design of the platform, featuring linear transport, it's easy to connect additional modules to existing LAP-L Platforms and further expand the automation of your process.

Scalable Design with a Small Footprint

The LAP-L Platform from GTE Engineering is designed with the efficient use of available space in mind, resulting in a small machine footprint. This is achieved by placing control cabinets above the machines. This not only reduces the machine’s footprint but also makes maintenance more accessible.

The LAP-L Platform is expandable and can be linked to other LAP-L modules. Vibratory fillers and docking stations can be added to increase the level of automation and machine autonomy. The platform is also highly suitable for the integration of robots or cobots, enabling flexible and complex handling.

GTE Design

The recognizable GTE design DNA is incorporated into the LAP-L, with an emphasis on hygienic design suitable for cleanroom environments. The platform can also be optionally equipped with its own fan-filter system to create an internal downflow. Control elements (emergency stops) are always identifiable and placed within reach at the corners.

The LAP-L comes with transparent safety enclosures as standard, featuring electronically lockable doors. This ensures maximum product visibility and guarantees employee safety.

The control screens on the HMI touchscreen have a distinct style. The modular design with high-quality stainless steel enclosures and frames makes the LAP-L an extremely durable machine in terms of lifespan, material usage, and recycling.

The LAP-L Platform from GTE Engineering offers several unique specifications that highlight the knowledge and expertise of GTE Engineering:

  • Scalable, modular design
  • Highly accessible for maintenance and operators
  • Suitable for medium to high production quantities
  • Minimal footprint, can be lowered for transport
  • Adjustable work height for the operator(s)
  • Operators have a clear overview of the entire machine
  • Proven techniques from the LAP-C and LAP-B Platforms
  • Very accessible for maintenance and operators
  • Suitable for small production quantities (high mix, low volume)
  • Siemens-based control, with the option for other systems
  • Integration of Vision systems possible
  • Shorter lead times compared to a fully custom machine
  • Clear UI, including status indication with LED panels in the ceiling of the machine
  • Processes within the machine can be adjusted and expanded afterward
  • PLC combined with remote IO stations to limit on-site installation and validation at the customer’s location

Why choose the LAP-L platform?

The LAP-L Platform is ideal for companies seeking to further automate their production, assembly, or packaging processes. It’s also suitable for companies looking for a custom machine within a standardized platform featuring proven techniques. Besides increasing capacity, the LAP-L significantly enhances process control and validation compared to manual processes.

Scalable Design

If you're looking for a platform that can be expanded later with additional modules or segments, the LAP-L Platform is the right choice. Adding docking stations further automates the production process. It's also possible to create a compact mobile solution with the relatively compact LAP-L machine design.

Small Footprint

During the design phase, the emphasis was on creating the most robust and foolproof machine possible with the smallest footprint. This was achieved by, among other things, placing control cabinets above the machines and setting up the basic design with modularity in mind. The machine is lowered for transport, allowing it to pass through a standard door height.

Easy Maintenance

Placing control cabinets above the machines makes maintenance easy and accessible. There's no need to work in tight spaces behind, beside, or under the machine. Thanks to easily removable panels, the mechanics, typically located below the product level, are highly accessible. The platform features remote access, making remote service easily achievable.

Control

Our machines typically use a Siemens control platform, often the Siemens S7-1500F fail-safe PLC, combined with a clean and user-friendly HMI. Other control systems, such as Allen Bradley, can also be implemented.

Software

With modular software and a well-thought-out HMI layout, machine operation is clear yet highly adjustable. This modularity allows you to later adapt the software application to different (new) product formats and production recipes. Moreover, it's possible to further automate processes by adding extra modules at a later date. Upon purchase, GTE always shares the source code with the customer.
