Supreme flexibility of the Kaptas concept

Automation expertise and experience

Decades of work as an automation partner in the pharmaceutical industry has taught us what is most important – genuine understanding of customer needs. As a designer and producer of special machines, we have had a major role in enabling the internationalisation of the Finnish pharmaceutical and diagnostics industry.

Competitiveness with Kaptas automation

With its expertise, Kaptas has earned the trust of the pharmaceutical and diagnostics industry from prototype series to mass production. We design and realise solutions that enhance the competitiveness of our customers.

Scalable production automation

One example of our customer-oriented thinking is the Kaptas concept. It is flexible and scalable concept developed for the needs of the pharmaceutical industry, enabling fast market access in the sensitive early phase of product development and production. Due to the concept, pharmaceutical companies can schedule their investments in the mass production of assembly in a safe and cost-effective manner.

The concept enables a significant competitive edge for the pharmaceutical industry

The assembly lines can be scaled when the volumes of the customer increase, realised annual production volumes total 1–20 million pieces (BX, Spider, Slimline, Highspeed).

The product can be produced in the critical early phase as cost-effectively as possible all the way until the potential challenges arisen in clinical trials and market reactions have been solved. Cost-effectiveness, quality and understanding of customer needs are the supremacy factors offered by Kaptas for its customers.

Finnish expertise in intelligent automation, robotics and artificial intelligence is already globally utilised in the pharmaceutical industry.
