    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.

Progressive learning program

The Crawler Crane Simulator exercises are designed to gradually build operator skill and confidence:

Crew Training: Tandem Lift Simulation

The Crawler Crane Training Pack’s tandem lift simulation teaches the lead crane operator how to maneuver a steel pipe load in tandem with a secondary crane, operated from another simulator connected on the network. This feature can be deployed in multiple configurations, with operators working on the Vortex Advantage simulator, the Vortex Edge Max, or the portable Vortex Edge Plus.

Crew training can be further extended with CM Labs’ Signal Person Training Station, which allows a trainee to guide the operation, within a challenging virtual job site that includes power lines and job site personnel. This type of team-based training can be expensive and difficult to reproduce in real-life but is safe and easy to set up with Vortex simulators.

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:

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.

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.

Equipment training packs

Our training packs feature self-guiding, progressive learning programs, and best-of-class simulation, from cranes to excavators. With operator metrics captured at every step, they provide the most comprehensive simulator training available on the market.
