Throwback 2012 – Continuing Education Innovation Prize

#ThrowbackThursday for the “Continuing Education Innovation Prize 2012” (WIP) at Didacta in Hanover!

A special recognition for the “Heidenhain Interactive Training” (HIT) project. On behalf of Heidenhain, we developed a revolutionary learning program that teaches older specialists how to operate and program complex CNC controls.

This innovative self-learning concept combined multimedia elements with traditional methods and enabled learners to learn flexibly and at any time.

The jury not only praised the high level of clarity and variety of the learning opportunities, but also the way in which KELLER combined work and learning.

    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…

    3 Reasons why you should not use SYMplus (or maybe you should!)

    1. If you prefer slow and inefficient CNC training.

    2. If you are not into interactive learning modules and having fun while learning.

    3. If you don’t want to benefit from a user-friendly software to enhance your CNC skills.

    Who would have thought that there are also reasons not to use SYMplus™, right?

    However, jokes aside, on our website you will find many reasons as to why you should use SYMplus™.

          Throwback 2014 – Foosball

          In the picture you can see an exciting game of foosball between Mr. Reckermann, our sales manager, and Mr. Nouwan, our valued and long-standing partner from Belgium.

          The foosball table is located at the Spectrumcollege campus in Beringen (Belgium) and the figures were created using a CNC machine.

            Happy Halloween 2023!

            We hope you are enjoying the autumn holidays!

            On October 31st, some states in Germany celebrate Reformationstag (Reformation day), while others observe November 1st as a holiday (All Saints’ Day). In the state of NRW in Germany (where we are located) we have the latter. Therefore, our office will be closed on Nov. 1st.

            No matter which holiday you are celebrating, we wish everyone a Spooktacular Halloween and a relaxed Fall season!

            KELLER.Software will be back to business as usual on November 2nd.

              Happy Easter 2023!

              Oops, who nibbled on the bunny’s ears? Fortunately, that can’t happen to a metal bunny, thanks to the crash warning in our SYMplus™ CNC software. This protects both bunny’s ears and expensive CNC machines.

              Regardless of whether the bunnies are made of chocolate or metal, the KELLER.Software team wishes you a happy Easter holiday! We’ll be back again on Tuesday (11.04.).

                2 weeks are ‘over’ and we now have to say goodbye to our intern Edvin Catic. The team wishes you all the best for your future and you are of course welcome back with us at any time.

                But for now, the floor is reserved for Mr. Catic himself:

                “I really enjoyed my internship at #KELLERSoftware. From the very first day, I felt at home thanks to the nice colleagues. During the two weeks, I learned a lot of things about the CNC field. They have broadened my insight into this profession, which will certainly help me in my further training.”
