Newsletter December 2023

G54 X 2024.

In this festive season, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and thank you for your continued loyalty and trust in KELLER.Software.

There have been challenges, enriching encounters and inspiring cooperation!

There was … a new Software Update

The PAL2020 simulators have been improved and expanded, turning in the 2nd quadrant with a right-hand turning tool is now possible without any problems, and SYMplus™ offers more flexibility thanks to additional post-processors and individual work step macros with contours.

Find out more about the software update >

There was … delicious Instant (CNC) food

Our new “series” on YouTube, “Instant CNC” is your little bite of CNC ready to enjoy in no time at all. The videos are less than a minute-long, making them the perfect snack. Immerse yourself in the world of CNC technology and discover new machining techniques using the 3D simulation from SYMplus™.

Our prices will be adjusted from 2024 (does not apply to existing plusCARE™ contracts) so that we can continue to offer you the best possible quality. Orders up to the end of the year will still be processed at the previous conditions.

There are … Insights into the examination task for cutting machine operators

The IHK examinations for cutting machine operators took place on December 6. We used SYMplus to simulate the examination task for CNC milling. You can watch the video on our YouTube channel. (Turning video will come in the following days. Keep yourself subscribed to get updates)
