Rent SYMplus™ CNC software for the summer season!

Summer, sun, sunshine – and the new training year for cutting machine operators is just around the corner! But what do you do as a trainer with the trainees while the trade school is closed for the vacations? Or are the trainees just starting their training?

With the user-friendly SYMplus™ CNC software, your trainees can receive a comprehensive introduction to machining technology or refresh their knowledge so that they are well-prepared for the next year of their apprenticeship.

Thanks to practical exercises and an intuitive user interface, trainees can (almost) learn completely independently.

The SYMplus™ rental version is best suited for this: simply rent it for the summer months and get started straight away! Ideal for making the most of the time until the new training year.

    55 years of the Moon Landing

    “The Eagle has landed.” 55 years ago today, on July 20, 1969, humans set foot on the moon for the first time. Every machinist knows how crucial precision work is - and it was precisely this precision…

    New video: Final Exam Part 2 for Machinists, Summer 2024 (Turning)

    Simulation of the IHK Final Exam (Exam conducted by Chamber of Industry & Commerce, Germany) Part 2 for Machinists, Summer 2024, CNC Turning is now available on YouTube:

    In the Turning examination task this time, all machining operations had to be carried out with driven tools on chordal surfaces (G19 IP5). In particular, gaps in the cycle calls (G7x) had to be filled, where the candidates needed to understand the axes in the G19 plane (YZ). In contrast to milling, however, it was not necessary to program entire contour trains. Instead, they were required to determine individual coordinates for the “center tolerance” and ISO fits. There were further gaps for recesses, an internal recess and jump addresses in program part repetitions.

      Newsletter June 2024

      Bye-bye exam stress, Hello summer!

      The exams are finally over and the summer vacation is just around the corner. But before you go fully into vacation mode, let’s take a look back at the exams – especially at the tasks given. What content was covered? What tricky challenges had to be mastered this year?


      Milling:

      There were no major surprises in the milling exam. Of course, it was necessary to master the functions for switching the radius correction on and off and to apply the commands for soft approach and departure that have been changed since 2020.

      In addition, contour points had to be read from the drawing and starting point coordinates had to be subtracted from the centre point coordinates, which were always dimensioned absolutely, to calculate I and J.

      Two fitting dimensions had to be determined, a rotational speed had to be calculated and some gaps in the cycle for thread milling (G88) and tapping (G84) had to be filled – similar to the previous winter exam.

                  Throwback 2012 – With KELLER: Prize winners in the training for cutting machine operators

                  In 2012, Mr. Schenk and Mr. Ekrem from FASTNER GmbH demonstrated their skills as the first and second prize winners in the training for cutting machine operators (specialising in milling) in their area. Particularly impressive: Mr. Schenk secured the title of Baden-Württemberg state winner!

                  Their final workpieces? Programmed with the KELLER software “SYMplus” (then still known as “CNCplus”) and manufactured by the HAAS TM-3P – the very machine they are posing in front of in the photo.

                  An impressive achievement even 12 years later!
