The fifth generation of worker the assistance system

Optimum GmbH presents: Smart Klaus in the fifth generation – now more powerful & flexible

(Karlsruhe, April 19, 2023). The fifth generation of the worker assistance system Smart Klaus features a new and expanded user interface. The now modular structure of the software enables the precise control of even highly complex manufacturing processes. The newly developed "SK Recipe Designer" module makes the creation of complex checking sequences faster and easier. The increased power of the software now permits parallel inspection of multiple characteristics and reduced reaction times.

One outstanding feature is the new operator interface concept with a widescreen monitor, combined with an additional touchscreen. Whilst the large monitor behind the work surface guides the operator with real-time information and provides feedback, the side screen serves as a control unit, providing better process overview.

Thanks to a new plug & play capability, extensions such as projectors or pick-by-light systems are integrated on the fly without any programming effort.

The Industry 4.0 solution impresses with positive effects - both for workers and stakeholders:

Workers benefit from safety and simplicity at the workplace, despite the increasing complexity of tasks. Stakeholders benefit from a high-quality standard. Additionally, constant product quality is ensured, enabling flexible workforce deployment and thus strengthening competitiveness.

Manufacturing companies are looking for solutions that can help automate their increasingly complex processes and strengthen their competitiveness, and that's exactly what Smart Klaus offers" stated Wolfgang Mahanty, CEO of Optimum GmbH.

Smart Klaus guides workers step by step through a wide range of work processes, from manual production to final product inspection (EoL). Digital work instructions and optical control ensure completely error-free production and thereby maximize productivity.

Based on the award-winning worker assistance system Der Schlaue Klaus, the new system represents a further development of this product. The new generation of the innovative Industry 4.0 solution bundles 30 years of international practical experience in a single product that has been continuously optimized over the course of the decade. Well-known customers such as Prettl, KSB or Siemens are already using Smart Klaus in their manual production facilities.
