Worker Assistance in Electronic Manufacturing

Assuring quality and avoiding rework by automatic guidance and checking during assembly and mounting

The digital transformation of the electronics industry towards Industry 4.0 and IoT is on the way. Driven by global competition, many companies are working on the implementation of digital possibilities on the shop floor. Others are already making extensive use of these possibilities, because faulty deliveries are costly in terms of contractual penalties and loss of image, among other things.

Smart Klaus SK Assembly is particularly suitable for complex, manual processes in electronics manufacturing. High variant diversity, low volume - high mix, high quality requirements and processes that are difficult to document are optimally supported by Smart Klaus SK Assembly.

The cognitive assistance system is used directly on the store floor. There, it guides the employee in real time through the production process by means of a step-by-step guide displayed on the screen. At the same time, the technology optically checks whether components have been correctly selected and assembled in the right quantity at the right places. Smart Klaus SK Assembly uses audiovisual instructions to indicate missing or incorrectly positioned components to the employee, as well as correctly executed work steps. If an assembly step has been successfully completed, the system praises it and automatically switches to the next step.

Because employees who work with Smart Klaus SK Assembly, do not require in-depth product knowledge, they can be deployed flexibly. The system enables them to learn new assembly tasks quickly and without specific training, while at the same time allowing them to work without stress.

Laser-guided THT assembly at Siemens AG in Fürth

Smart Klaus SK Assembly supports the employees in THT assembly. He guides the workers step by step on the screen through the assembly process and checks in parallel whether each component has been correctly assembled. Assembly errors are immediately displayed to the worker so that he can correct them immediately.

As an additional work facilitation, the position of the still missing components is projected directly onto the PCB with the help of a laser. As soon as a component is correctly assembled, the projection goes out at this point. This is how the Smart Klaus SK Assembly provides an additional productivity gain.
