Identify articles quick and easily
without bar codes, QR code, DMX code or RFID tag

SK Ident: Smart Klaus for automatic optical identification

Smart Klaus SK Ident identifies articles, even without barcode, QR code, DMX- code or RFID, tag and displays the corresponding master data.

  • Search times are significantly reduced.
  • Mix-ups are excluded.
  • Material and time expenditure for the attachment of barcodes, QR codes or RFID are no longer necessary.
  • The training effort for employees is reduced.

Case Study:

Smart Klaus SK Ident distinguishes 1,800 different IC trays.

The reusable trays are collected from the IC manufacturers' customers by a logistics service provider and cleaned. They then have to be sorted and transported back to the various IC manufacturers.

The large number of over 1,800 different trays, some of which differ only minimally from one another, makes manual sorting extremely time-consuming. By using Smart Klaus, sorting was not only accelerated, but also made more reliable.

At the same time, the workload of the employees was reduced.

Field of view and detection accuracy

The field of view of the camera and the detection accuracy depend on the working distance and the focal length of the lens used. The specified values ​​for the field of vision apply at a working distance of 1,200 mm. The values ​​for the detection accuracy are practical experience, in which Smart Klaus works reliably in a typical industrial environment. The values ​​that can be achieved under optimal environmental conditions are given in parentheses below.
