    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

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
  • Rough load handling
  • Certification test violations

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.
