Zero-error production for medical technology

Smart Klaus – the digital worker assistance system enables precision, documentation and traceability with ease.

Quite simple

Quality assurance in medical technology

In medical technology, high precision and quality are crucial to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the products manufactured.

Manual production requires trained personnel with excellent craftsmanship skills to maintain tight manufacturing tolerances and produce flawless products.

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

The camera-based assistant detects deviations to an accuracy of tenths of a millimetre 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 demands on expertise in incoming goods in medical technology are high.

A wide variety of individual parts have to be identified and their quality checked. To ensure traceability, comprehensive documentation of the test results for each item 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

SK Ident

SK Ident

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 medical technology require precision and clarity. Therefore, exact identification of the components is crucial.

Due to the high number of variants, strong similarity of the different components and varying labelling codes, this task is a great challenge without a reliable worker assistance system.

Durch die hohe Variantenvielfalt, starke Ähnlichkeit der unterschiedlichen Komponenten und variierenden Beschriftungscodes ist diese Aufgabe ohne ein zuverlässiges Werkerassistenzsystem eine große Herausforderung.

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. 

Manual production in medical technology is under enormous quality pressure. The safety standards are high and must be adhered to – this requires expertise. In order to train the workers accordingly, time-consuming and cost-intensive training courses are necessary.

With Smart Klaus, employees can be deployed in production even without extensive training, because the assistance system accompanies them through every work step and ensures error-free production.

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

SK THT

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

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. 

For zero-error production, the highest quality standards must be met. Constant control without a worker assistance system takes up time and human resources, and therefore reduces the productivity of the production line. In addition, only personnel with the necessary expertise can carry out inspections.

Smart Klaus significantly reduces check times, without any skilled work at all, thereby speeding up the entire process.

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
