Everything about the GTE Platforms

GTE believes in innovation and the automation of production processes in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. That’s why we developed the GTE Platforms: a series of standardised platforms in which we work with modules tailored to your production process. This makes your production process more efficient, less prone to errors and increases the quality of your products. GTE currently offers two platforms: LAP-C and LAP-L. While both platforms are suitable for, among other things, assembling and packaging products, the LAP-C is a circular platform with an extremely small footprint. The LAP-L is a linear platform that takes up a bit more space but still has a relatively small footprint.

Completely modular

The entire platform is geared towards scaling up modules. This allows customer needs to be met quickly when it comes to expanding existing machines. Completely new platforms also have quick delivery times. That’s how we make sure our platform can be seamlessly rolled out within your organisation. As a result, you quickly have a high Return on Investment.

Why choose GTE Platforms?

The GTE Platforms are ideal for companies looking for a quick solution for their issues surrounding the automation of medical or pharmaceutical packaging and assembly processes.

Scaleable design

Are you in the start-up phase of your production line, but want to reserve the ability to expand with additional modules at a later date? The GTE Platforms are fully designed to scale up later with additional modules and automate the production process even further.

Small footprint

It’s important to us to design machines that are as robust and foolproof as possible, while still having a small footprint. We achieve this by, among other things, placing E-cabinets above the machines.

Easy to maintain

It is precisely by placing the E-cabinets above the machines that maintaining them is easy and accessible. No more fumbling around in a far too cramped space behind, beside or at the bottom of the machine.

Controls

We use a Siemens S7-1500F fail safe PLC in our machines by default. The main benefit of this system is that this PLC has two separate networks, enabling you to connect to both the client network and the machine network – with different IP ranges.

Software

GTE doesn’t use 'locked software,' making it possible to adapt the software application to different formats and production recipes. Additionally, it’s possible to further automate the process at a later stage by adding additional modules.

Considerations when selecting reputable machine developers

What factors should you consider when selecting a machine builder? Do they meet the stringent quality standards of the medical industry? While there are numerous legal regulations in place to ensure machine and product quality, it’s crucial that machine designers and builders are cognizant of these requirements. Additionally, take into account three key factors that can impact both the machine and your product’s quality: the human factor, the product design, and the proficiency of the machine builder.

Accepting downtime is a mortal sin!

Everyone knows that companies are all about production, or ‘adding value’. Value is everything the customer needs and pays for. All other activities support this. That’s why it’s so strange that unplanned downtime is so quickly accepted and seen as ‘normal’. Many companies are not aware of how often the production line comes to a standstill. People quickly get used to it and accept downtime on a production or assembly line. However, a production line coming to a standstill is disastrous for the organization. If no value is added, the entire organization comes to a standstill.
