Eliminating “fake” training

Pretty 3D images are great in movies, but when you’re training operators, overlooking the physics engine can lead to “fake” or negative training. The physics engine inside your simulator matters. It’s what determines whether your loader loses traction, or whether your crane tips. With over 30 man years spent developing our physics engine, CM Labs has simply built more expertise into its simulators than anyone else in the industry.

When you’re buying a simulator, look for the gear.

Success with Vortex simulators

When the Operating Engineers Training Institute of Ontario (OETIO) modernised their training classroom with next-generation Vortex simulators and instructor stations for operator training, the benefits ranged from faster practical training time to increased trainee engagement and more.
