SK THT

Smart klaus for guided THT assembly

The SK THT guides the entire PCB assembly process by means of digital work instructions.

Errors are eliminated, the workload is reduced and quality is automatically assured.

 

Perfect PCB and circuit board assembly.

Instruct. Assemble. Document.

Range of applications and advantages 

The Smart Klaus THT guides workers step by step through the entire PCB assembly process.

Thanks to digital work instructions with accompanying images and real-time feedback, every employee is able to master even the most complex THT assembly – even without previous experience.

Manual assembly processes become faster and safer with the worker assistance system – thanks to the industrial image processing software with automatic recognition and optical inspection function.

Consistently high quality thanks to digital guidance and visual inspection.

0 ppm possible – no more errors in the mounting process.

No more rejects, rework or complaints.

Digital knowledge and work instructions.

Flexible deployment of employees – everyone becomes an assembly expert.

Increased mounting efficiency thanks to digital instructions and automatic visual inspection.

How it works

Optimised PCB assembly

Exemplary structure of a workplace. All components of the assistance system can be assembled on existing work tables.

The SK Assembly worker assistance system guides workers step by step through the manual assembly process for printed circuit boards.

Digital work instructions on the display show workers what to do. With the help of augmented reality and the live image from the camera, the relevant area for the work step is also marked.

The industrial image-processing software permanently analyses and interprets the images captured by the camera. In this way, the worker assistance system can provide feedback in real time as to whether a work step has been carried out correctly, and immediately points out any errors. Smart Klaus only continues the mounting process if all the items on the digital checklist have been successfully completed.
