SYMplus™ Update 63

SYMplus™ Update 63 is now available to all customers with plusCARE™ and includes new features as well as great improvements.

  • Scale the font size in the editor of the simulators to 200% by default (e.g. for the beamer image of the teacher’s computer)
  • When creating PAL gap-filling tasks, store individual instructions for each gap in the text
  • Receive the new simulators for the SINUMERIK 808D control system
  • The exchange of revolver stations and individual allowance presettings for roughing, facing and grooving in turning operation was never so easy

In addition, many detailed improvements in the simulators for PAL2020, SIEMENS 810D/840D and HEIDENHAIN allow for more effective work. The use of mobile licenses and the sources for the creation of individual macro work steps (by customer order) have also been improved. Other sample programs have been revised according to PAL2020 (for new installation as part of the user data).

    6 steps to an organised Postprocessor list.

    SYMplus™ provides a list of around 50 Postprocessors. In reality, you will hardly ever need all of them. Mostly you work with one or a few. So selecting the right postprocessor can prove to be a nuisance with such a large list. Here is a tip that can help you organise those Postprocessors efficiently: Create a second folder for postprocessor parameter sets, and copy the postprocessors you currently need into this folder. That’s it.

    Here it goes:

    Step 1: Open the “Work plan” operating mode (alternatively also “PAL simulator” or “Simulator”).

    Step 2: Select “F1 File” > “F5 Management” > “F4 Postprocessor Parameter”.

    Step 3: Mark the file(s) relevant to you and …

    Lastly, we want to pause and look back at the past year.

    It was great to see that many events and meetings took place this year. It started with the BETT UK education fair in London in March and ended with the BZI Remscheid open day last month.

    The fact that face-to-face meetings were more feasible again than in the past two years was also evident at the KELLER.Academy: close to 40 guests came to the Academy courses this year (in comparison: there were less than twenty in 2021). In addition, the KELLER.Academy celebrated its fifth anniversary and held (virtual) training courses in Pakistan and Mexico, both of which are far away. In September, we published the new “SYMplus™ license via the Internet”, with which you now only need one KELLER ID to let several users work with SYMplus™. And in October, a new edition of the workbooks was also published.

    Look out for more new improvements next year!

    New on YouTube: With the PAL2020 reform, some commands in the PAL encoding have been changed. As a result, programs written according to PAL2008 or PAL 2012 no longer run and lead to error messages. With this practical tip, you can easily rewrite your programs.

      PRACTICAL TIP – How to organise Postprocessors

      December 2022

      SYMplus™ provides a list of around 50 Postprocessors. In reality, you will hardly ever need all of them. Mostly you work with one or a few. So selecting the right postprocessor can prove to be a nuisance with such a large list. Here is a tip that can help you organise those Postprocessors efficiently: Create a second folder for postprocessor parameter sets, and copy the postprocessors you currently need into this folder. That’s it.

      Here it goes:

      Step 1:

      Open the “Work plan” operating mode (alternatively also “PAL simulator” or “Simulator”).

      Step 2:

      Select “F1 File” > “F5 Management” > “F4 Postprocessor Parameter”.

      Step 3:

      Mark the file(s) relevant to you and add them to your personal selection list with “F5 Add”. The selected files are then each marked with a black triangle/arrow.

      Step 4:

      Then select “F2 Copy” and choose the destination folder from the list. Confirm your selection with “F10”. If you don’t have a folder yet, create one by clicking “F2 Add …” or ‘link’ to an already existing one. In our example, the new folder is called “MY_PPs” and is a subfolder of the default folder “PARAM-SA”.

      Step 5:

      Finally, enter the name under which the folder should appear in the “SYMplus™ File Management” in the future (for example: “My Post Processors”) and confirm with “F10”.

      Now you can select your newly created folder from the folder list. Click on “F10” to open the folder. Subsequently, you can exit the parameter set management with “Esc” or “F10”.


      We hope we could help you with this tip. For more practical tips, visit KELLER.News on our website or the KELLER YouTube channel.

          Practical Tip: Rewrite old PAL programs for the PAL2020 – In Video format

          With the PAL2020 reform, some of the commands in the PAL coding were changed. The commands were changed so that programs written after PAL2008 or PAL 2012 will no longer run and lead to any error messages in the newer PAL2020 simulators (or PAL2020 C/Y or PAL2020 3+2). This means that you have to rewrite the program blocks almost completely – and that takes time.

          A faster way to do this is to use the “Find/Replace” trick:

                  The VR workshop: Playful access to the CNC world.

                  What if you could learn in a “real” CNC workshop instead of learning theory in a classroom? What if you could practice there on lathes or milling machines without the fear of making a mistake? This is the possibility offered with the VR workshop from KELLER.Software.

                  With this modern and playful learning method, the necessary learning content is intuitively internalized. Thanks to the two VR controllers, you can now move through the “virtual workshop”, you grasp objects, press buttons and make machines work. And the VR glasses are like a new pair of eyes.
