    Crawler Crane Simulator

    Progressive learning for safe lifting operations, crawler crane productivity, and real crane operator skills.

Crawler Crane Simulator

With the Crawler Crane Simulator Training Pack, operators learn the fundamentals of crawler crane operation, including slewing, boom operation, and handling of many load types, ranging from sewer pipes and steel erection to large lifts such as wind turbine components.


Crawler crane simulator training pack features

Progressive learning program

The Crawler Crane Simulator exercises are designed to gradually build operator skill and confidence:
  • LMI configuration and alarms
  • Hook and load management
  • Pendulum control
  • Complex lifts in confined spaces

Objective performance indicators

The Crawler Crane Simulator Training Pack gives trainers objective insight into operator performance and abilities. It measures operator performance metrics such as:
  • Tasks completed and time
  • Shock loads
  • Pendulums and load or hook collisions

Operator scoring

The Crawler Crane Simulator Training Pack makes it easy for you to benchmark operator skills, with a scoring system that rolls performance metrics up into a single score.
  • Easy-to-use interface lets you tailor scoring system according to your priorities
  • Generate trainee reports that identify the different indicators making up the final score
  • You can document trainee progress objectively and effectively

Lift planning

It’s often said that 50% of every lift is in the planning. That’s why each exercise in the Crawler Crane Simulator Training Pack features a basic lift plan that allow trainees to learn thorough preparation before ever setting foot on the virtual work site.
