The Results

This immersive experience of our simulators, coupled with engaging built-in pedagogy and Smart Training Technology, professional-grade controls and seating, and best-in-class audiovisuals, ensure the best possible training outcomes.

Train faster
Our simulators provide focused seat time, without weather constraints, and dramatically reduce 1-on-1 training hours. Thanks to an engaging learning experience, trainees acquire valuable skills even when the real equipment is unavailable.
Reduce your training costs
At a fraction of the cost of the equipment, deploy a fleet of simulators with lower maintenance and fuel costs, and a reduced carbon footprint.
Train safety with real-world scenarios
Applying CM Labs’ proprietary Smart Training Technology™, the simulator accurately replicates machine behavior—providing real-world training opportunities to help reduce the risk of accidents.
An immersive experience to maximize learning retention

Motion Platform: The full-motion platform is tied, in real-time, to the simulation and accurately replicates much of an operator’s day-to-day experience: driving on uneven terrain, engine RPM vibrations, throttle, etc.

Trainees improve their muscle memory ultimately to be “one” with their equipment: feeling the platform bowing down as they dig, pitching at risk of tipping, or feeling engine vibrations through the seat to avoid choking the throttle.

 

Audio Cues: Noises that are essential audio cues for safe operation and task completion (such as fork scraping and shifting, alarms, honking, and other job site sounds) are simulated to heighten training immersion and increased learning retention.
