    Flat-top Tower Crane Simulator

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

Flat-top Tower Crane Simulator

With the Flat-top Tower Crane Simulator Training Pack, operators learn the fundamentals of standard top-slewing tower crane work, including load charts, blind lifts, and 2-part/4-part-of-line operation. They’ll also learn the fundamentals of safety systems including anti-2-block, lower limit switch, and trolley limit switch.

Tower crane simulator- Learning Program

Progressive learning program

The Flat-top Tower Crane Simulator exercises are designed to gradually build operator skill and confidence:
  • Understanding controls, start up and shutdown
  • LMI configuration/ alarms
  • Hook and load management
  • Pendulum control
  • Moving and unloading on the worksite
  • Working at different heights and longer hook lines
  • Test courses

Trainee performance management

The Flat-top Tower Crane Simulator Training Pack gives trainers objective insight into operator performance and abilities. It measures operator performance metrics such as:

  • Tasks completed and time
  • Pendulums and load or hook collisions
  • Rough load handling
  • Certification test violations

Operator scoring

The Flat-top Tower 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 Flat-top Tower Crane Simulator Training Pack features a basic lift plan that allow trainees to learn how to thoroughly prepare before ever setting foot on the virtual work site.

Best-in-class simulation

The Flat-top Tower Crane Simulator Training Pack provides the most realistic simulation-based training available. This includes:

  • Crane boom and jib bending/torqueing
  • Stability and overloading risks
  • Cable collisions with worksite obstructions and the crane boom
  • Pendulums, snags, and collisions

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.

Make sure they’re ready

Vortex simulators represent the widest range of training solutions available today. With swappable controls, one simulator can train for many equipment types, and flexible display options mean you can start on the desktop, or engage trainees with full immersion.
