Trimble® Earthworks Grade Control Platform works in parallel with CM Labs’ Vortex Studio Software and runs off a tablet which users can connect to the simulator. Visual aids are overlaid onto the existing ground along with cut/fill information, slope data and other customizable reference points to provide the user with a better understanding of the work that needs to be done. A variety of configurable views makes it easier to obtain the right perspective for maximum training value. Trimble Earthworks, combined with CM Labs’ unmatched machine realism, builds skills that transfer directly to the worksite, and teaches operators of all experience levels how to work more efficiently.
Excavator work goes far beyond digging and basic controls manipulation. Skilled operators require precision, in-depth knowledge of the equipment, and versatility.
The Excavator Training Pack exercises immerse operators in challenging environments that allows them to develop specific, complex skills, such as pipe placement and load handling.
Sitting in a real excavator can be stressful for new operators. The Excavator Simulator Training Pack allows beginners to learn controls and basic digging techniques in a safe and controlled environment.
While safely training new operators is essential, upskilling existing excavator operators is paramount. The Excavator Training Pack also lets operators practice advanced excavator skills, such as cleaning trenches, leveling, and practicing jump turns.
Crew training enables multiple operators to complete a collaborative task within the same virtual worksite, from connected simulators.
This crew training exercise allows an excavator operator to learn how to safely and efficiently fill an articulated dump truck, while another trainee learns how to operate the truck, interact with the excavator, and drive on various types of terrain.
This type of collaborative training can be difficult and dangerous to reproduce with real equipment, especially for new trainees, due to the potentially hazardous interactions between equipment and personnel.
The Excavator Training Pack provides objective measurements of operator performance and abilities. These performance metrics are rolled up into a score that can be customised to take your most important criteria into consideration, including:
The Excavator Training Pack 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. This results in training that’s based on real data and real machines that have been field tested by leading equipment manufacturers.
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.
