CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex training simulators, has launched an immersive new training pack for empty container handler (ECH) operators.
It is believed to be the only ECH training solution on the market that allows operators to experience the effects of unbalanced loads and other causes of machine instability. This capability is due to the Smart Training Technology that’s incorporated in the solution. Smart Training Technology is comprised of CM Labs’ proprietary and patented algorithms and includes real-time simulation features that CM Labs says are unique on the market.
The ECH Simulator Training Pack can run on any CM Labs ports equipment simulator, including the desktop Vortex Trainer, the motion-enabled Vortex Advantage and the high-immersion Vortex Master. Because of their hot-swappable control capabilities, each simulator can run a full fleet of training packs following the full journey of cargo. This includes STS crane, ship pedestal crane, straddle carrier, rubber-tyred gantry, mobile harbour crane, reach stacker, forklift, and more.
