New edition workbooks for PAL2020.

In 2 months it will be Christmas, but before we settle down comfortably on the sofa with cookies, we still have a PAL exam coming up.

To help you prepare for the exam in the best possible way, we have updated the SYMplus™ workbooks to include the PAL2020 commands and made a few other important corrections as well. The new edition with PAL2020 is now available for purchase from us. By the way, even without an exam, the workbooks are a great learning tool to learn the CNC basics with SYMplus™.

What are SYMplus™ workbooks?

Methodically interlocked with SYMplus™, the SYMplus™ workbooks are the ideal teaching material for the introduction to CNC, basic training according to DIN, preparation for the PAL exam as well as control-specific technical training and CAD/CAM. The workbooks are structured according to topics and contain tasks with increasing levels of difficulty. The workbooks are also available digitally on request.

These workbooks are available for purchase:
  • SYMplus™ Turning workbook
  • SYMplus™ Milling workbook

If you want to know in detail what contents can be found in the respective workbooks, take a look at the reading samples:

      Simulation of the IHK Final Examination Part 2, Winter 2020 (conducted in Germany) for Cutting Machine Operators in Milling.

      This time it was swivelled by 90°. This is not a particular challenge for gap inspection, but in practical implementation it is important to ensure that there is no collision with the turntable or a travel distance violation. In SYMplus™ this can be tested with different machines (from DMG, SPINNER, HAAS, HERMLE, …). This time, polar programming (G11, G12, G13) was a must, and for future tests there was a preview of the changes in tangential approach and retraction. From now on, the following applies to the tests: G45 stands for tangential approach and departure on a straight line, G46 for approach and departure in a quarter circle and G47 in a semicircle. In SYMplus™ there is now a new “Mode 2020” for the PAL simulator, which is alternatively selected as the default setting in the “Setup” mode.

        The requirements of this test were similar to those of the previous tests. It was swivelled around the B axis again, traverse paths of the contours and parameters for the groove had to be added. In addition, the infeed depth of the T-slot milling cutter and speed had to be calculated.

          Among other things, gaps in the internal thread and face grooving cycle had to be filled, and the external contour had to be programmed almost entirely by the examinee. Two wrench flats were milled with a driven tool and Y-axis.
