Smart Klaus Lite

SKL Assembly

The starter kit for worker guidance and quality assurance in THT assembly and manual mounting

Easy Teach-In



Error Reporting

Mounting, assembling and checking in one operation

Smart Klaus Lite SKL Assembly is the younger brother of Smart Klaus SK Assembly, designed for an easy start in digitizing your manual THT assembly and / or mounting. It is optimised for use at manual workstations where the part carriers are fixed during manufacturing, no user administration with role concept is required and only a few different assemblies are to be produced. There, Smart Klaus Lite SKL Assembly guides the worker step by step on the screen, checks each individual manufacturing step in real time and warns in case of errors.

If required, Smart Klaus SKL Assembly can be upgraded for further requirements, up to the complete functional range of the Smart Klaus SK Assembly.

Smart Klaus Lite SKL Assembly instructs the worker on the screen, checks the individual assembly steps and warns of assembly errors

With the cognitive assembly assistance system Smart Klaus Lite SKL Assembly you produce error-free, relaxed and safe. The test procedure stored in Smart Klaus Lite SKL Assembly serves as an intelligent digital work instruction, which guides the workers step by step through the assembly process.

For this purpose, a camera is mounted above the work area, with the help of which the Smart Klaus Lite SK Assembly monitors the assembly process live. As soon as an assembly step has been carried out correctly, it automatically switches to the next step. In the event of an error, Smart Klaus Lite SK Assembly warns the worker and asks him to correct the error.

In this way it is ensured that the current work instruction is used and observed at all times. Errors due to outdated work instructions or forgotten assembly steps are eliminated.

With the optionally available module Automatic Documentation, all measured values collected during assembly and the camera images of all assembly steps can be automatically archived. Thus, all assembly steps are traceable and the assembly protocol can serve as proof of quality to your customers.

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.
