    Concrete Pump Simulator

    Provide real-world experience without slowing down the worksite

Concrete Pump Simulator

CM Labs’ Concrete Pump Simulator is the only one of its kind on the market and allows operators to develop the right skills, from safely deploying outriggers and creating concrete slabs, to pouring footings and foundations – all within a controlled and safe environment. Operators gain real-world experience and competence without having to deal with worksite stress. This enables them to learn more quickly and more effectively.

The Concrete Pump Simulator helps reduce training costs associated to fuel consumption, poured concrete waste and machine set-up, while getting operators ready for the job faster and more efficiently.

Concrete Pump Simulator Outriggers

Industry-Based Curriculum

The Concrete Pump Simulator curriculum was developed in collaboration with the American Concrete Pumping Association and offers exercises on:
  • Basic controls
  • Concrete slab
  • Footing and foundation
  • Pouring on rooftop
  • Skills challenge
  • Certification
Each exercise has the option of being launched with or without the outriggers and boom deployed. The concrete pump training pack is designed to guide trainees toward proficiency, in a learning environment where mistakes are far less costly than on actual pouring jobs.

Portable and Flexible

Built for maximum portability and flexibility, the Concrete Pump Simulator is lightweight and comes with an industry-grade remote control box and a laptop, as well as a mouse. An optional virtual reality headset is also available for purchase. With one click, operators can seamlessly transition to the VR display.

The entire set can be easily transported in your personal luggage. It’s the perfect hands-on tool for attracting new operators at job fairs or career development events and allows training to take place anywhere at any time. This makes it possible for operators to learn when the real equipment is in use or undergoing maintenance. It also means they can train 24/7 or when climate conditions are unfavourable.

Concrete Pump Operator Assessment

Track Concrete Pump Operator Performance

CM Labs’ Concrete Pump Simulator enables objective assessment of an operator’s performance with built-in scoring on metrics such as time to pour, and reporting on events such as contacts between equipment and structures. Scoring metrics include:
  • Boom collisions
  • Hose touching ground (number of incidents)
  • Hose height above ground when pouring
  • Hose too high when pouring (number of incidents and time)
  • Time to complete a pour
  • Total volume of concrete used
  • Volume of spilled concrete
  • Contact with humans
  • Contact and proximity to power lines
As a result of this continuous monitoring, the chances of trainee errors, incidents, near misses, or accidents will greatly diminish.

Trainers can also introduce challenges at any time, including drifting outriggers, hose bursts, and more.

Smart Training Technology

The Concrete Pump Simulator incorporates Smart Training Technology™. That’s why it delivers the most transferable operator skills anywhere, outside of the real equipment.
Smart Training Technology is comprised of CM Labs’ proprietary and patented algorithms, and ensures precision engineering of the simulated equipment inside the Concrete Pump Training Pack. The detailed simulation includes:
  • Boom backlash
  • Hydraulics system
  • Engine performance
  • Machine stability
This results in training that’s based on real data and real machines, and that has been field-tested by leading training organizations and equipment manufacturers.
