Smart Klaus is a camera based digital assistance system designed to deliver smart production technology by supporting operators with manual assembly processes in your factory.
The Smart Klaus is an Automated Optical Inspection System - AOI - for use in manual and THT assembly stations. By performing real time assembly guidance and placement inspection, the operator can prevent defects from moving to the next process. Using Augmented Reality, the Smart Klaus will guide the operator through the assembly work process and ensure perfect quality in real time.

Smart Klaus features a modular design, meaning there's a suitable model for every area of application:
See below for further descriptions of the Smart Klaus models.
Smart Klaus uses one or more cameras to monitor the work area. An image processing software analyzes the work in progress, guides the operator through the work steps and warns immediately if anything is wrong.
The picture shows an illustrative setup. Smart Klaus is optionally available with or without a work table. All components can also be easily mounted on existing worktables or production lines.
Superior quality due to a permanent real time quality supervision.
No loss of time and material caused by rework or rejects.
Reduced training efforts for workers due to the automatic and permanent guidance of Smart Klaus.
Smart Klaus Receipt guarantees the constant quality of your incoming goods inspection.
Incoming goods processes become faster and safer thanks to the automatic recognition and visual inspection function of the image-processing software.
SK Ident for tdentification of hard to distinguish IC trays.
Trays for IC production are collected in unsorted state for cleaning and reuse. The large number of 1,800+ different but similar tray types was a hard challenge to the workers. This task is now performed by Smart Klaus. The worker puts an IC tray below the camera and Smart Klaus tells him, which tray type it is and where to store it. Thus Smart Klaus eliminates the training requirements for the employees, minimizes the error rate and cuts the time for sorting and storage dramatically.
SK Assembly guides workers step by step through the entire assembly process. Thanks to digital work instructions with accompanying images and real-time feedback, every employee is able to assemble everything – 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.
Smart Klaus Inspect was specially developed for end-of-line quality control.
The worker assistance system checks the quality of semi-finished and finished products after mounting and provides feedback. If a product is faulty, the system sends a signal and the worker can react.
