Use case:

"The processes in our company are more economical and the workers are relieved"
Joanna Wilgosiewicz-Beginska, Quality Assurance

At NIRA KSV GmbH, Smart Klaus supports employees in the end-of-line inspection of injection molded assemblies.

The assemblies are simply placed in the camera's field of view and Smart Klaus automatically starts the inspection process. Complicated fixtures and sensors are no longer required.

The inspection results are automatically documented in images and assigned to a batch number. This batch number can be used to prove to the customer that all parts have been 100% inspected.

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.
