The first Smart Klaus was put into operation in October 2016. By the end of 2019, the number of assistance systems delivered has increased to over 200 worldwide. For 2020, we expect a further significant increase in deliveries - among other things due to the expansion of our dealer network.
The majority of the systems are currently being delivered to customers in Germany. Smart Klaus is also already in productive use in the USA, Mexico, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland and Switzerland. There are hundreds of thousands of manual workstations worldwide that can benefit from Smart Klaus. Because exactly where robots and collaborative robotics are uneconomical or not applicable due to too high investments or too complex gripping situations, your customer benefits from the Smart Klaus. The market potential is constantly increasing due to the ongoing development of the assistance system.
Although Smart Klaus is a new and innovative product, it has already proven its suitability for industrial use. This is shown by the increasing number of repeat orders and the satisfaction of our existing customers, who use the advantages of the Smart Klaus in their daily production. By using the Smart Klaus, our customers gain a decisive competitive advantage: more quality, more productivity and relaxed working conditions.
We focus on fairness and transparency. We offer our dealers other sources of income in addition to the discounted assistance systems:
- Consulting and project planning by the dealer
- Maintenance and service by the dealer
- Adjustment of test procedures to new or modified articles, assemblies and products by the dealer
- sale of accessories
