Mastering the diversity of variants in THT assembly

Smart Klaus – the digital worker assistance system enables efficient precision work. Complex variant diversity is no longer a problem.

No more errors

Guaranteeing precision in electronics production

The placement of sensitive electronic parts requires extreme precision and concentration.

Time-intensive, complex and diverse assembly and mounting variants increase the risk of defects or malfunctions.

With Smart Klaus, long production times are shortened and costs are minimised. 

The camera-based assistant detects misplacement thanks to a combination of deterministic algorithms and artificial intelligence.

SAFE.FLEXIBLE.EFFICIENT.

SK Receipt

SK Receipt

Smart Klaus for the incoming goods inspection

 

The SK Receipt worker assistance system takes over numerous tasks in incoming goods: Automatic identification, quality inspection, documentation and booking. 

All in just one work step.

The requirements for specialist knowledge in the incoming goods department of electronics production are high.

A wide variety of electronic components must be identified and checked for quality. In order to ensure traceability, complete documentation of the various work steps is also required.

Your benefits at a glance
  • Quality assurance of incoming goods through automatic visual inspection
  • Review of relevant automotive safety standards
  • Detection of minimal differences in very similar automotive parts
  • Mix-ups of components are excluded thanks to optical identification
  • Reduced search times and increased efficiency
  • Speed and precision remain constant
  • Digital work instructions and data for the incoming goods
  • Every employee becomes an incoming goods expert

Smart Klaus for automatic optical identification

 

The SK Ident worker assistance system identifies automotive parts within seconds based on their characteristics, and automatically displays associated data. It also reliably recognises QR codes, barcodes, RFID tags or labels. 

Production processes in the electronics industry are often under time pressure. Under these conditions, fast and accurate identification of components is very important.

However, with a high number of variants, similar appearances and a wide variety of labels, this becomes a challenge.

Smart Klaus helps to meet complex challenges and a wide range of variants.

Your benefits at a glance
  • Detection of minimal differences in very similar automotive parts
  • Mix-ups of components are excluded thanks to optical identification
  • Reduced search times and increased efficiency 
  • Speed and precision remain constant
  • Digital work instructions and integrated expertise for each product
  • Every employee becomes a product expert

Smart Klaus for manual mounting

 

The SK Assembly worker assistance system guides workers step-by-step through production processes using digital work instructions and permanent visual inspection. 

The industrial image-processing software checks whether a work step has been carried out correctly and provides feedback in real time. This virtually eliminates errors in manual mounting. 

The electronics industry is subject to constant change and technological progress, which leads to high complexity and diversity of variants.

Varying mounting processes require constant concentration and put a strain on people. In addition, there is the time-consuming and cost-intensive training of new skilled workers. Flexible staff planning is difficult and production efficiency suffers.

Smart Klaus provides the necessary relief for employees and is also able to guide them through the mounting process independently – here is no need for lengthy training of new employees.

Your benefits at a glance
  • Consistently high quality in the production thanks to the visual inspection
  • 0 ppm possible – no more errors in the mounting process
  • Time savings and increased efficiency during mounting thanks to digital instructions and automatic visual inspection
  • Production defects and output are reduced
  • Speed and precision remain constant
  • Digital work instructions and integrated expertise
  • Flexible deployment of employees – everyone becomes a manufacturing expert
  • No more complaints

Smart Klaus for THT assembly

 

The SK THT worker assistance system guides workers step-by-step through THT assembly using digital work instructions and permanent visual inspection. 

The industrial image-processing software checks whether a work step has been carried out correctly and provides feedback in real time. This virtually eliminates errors in manual mounting. 

In manual THT assembly without a worker assistance system, human errors are unavoidable.

Consistently high concentration and accuracy cannot be maintained over several hours. Elaborate quality controls to identify and reject defective products are therefore an integral part of every manufacturing process.

The SK THT reliably supports these tasks and makes it possible to meet the highest quality requirements.

Your benefits at a glance
  • Consistently high quality in the production thanks to the visual inspection
  • 0 ppm possible – no more errors in the assembly process
  • Time savings and increased efficiency during mounting thanks to digital instructions and automatic visual inspection
  • Production defects and output are reduced
  • Speed and precision remain constant
  • Digital work instructions and integrated expertise
  • Flexible deployment of employees – everyone becomes a THT expert
  • No more complaints

SK Inspect

Smart Klaus for optical quality control

 

The SK Inspect worker assistance system was specially designed for end-of-line quality assurance.

With this module, the worker assistant inspects and checks the quality of semi-finished and finished products after they have been fully mounted, and provides feedback. 

Electronic products must have a high level of quality and reliability, and comply with certain regulations and standards. Elaborate follow-up checks are often introduced as quality assurance measures. However, these take up human and time resources.

Smart Klaus assists with the follow-up checks and reduces the effort enormously, thanks to the automatic optical identification of errors.

Your benefits at a glance
  • Quality assurance thanks to the downstream optical quality inspection
  • Time savings and increased efficiency in end-of-line testing 
  • Speed and precision remain constant in the test process
  • Flexible deployment of staff – everyone becomes an end-of-line expert
  • No more complaints
