    Forklift Simulator

    The only simulation solution that exposes trainees to real forklift hazards and challenges

Forklift Simulator Training

With the Forklift Simulator Training Pack, trainees learn to safely operate a forklift and avoid common hazards such as overturns and collisions. It’s the only solution on the market that accurately replicates machine instability when executing maneuvers like tight turns, driving down a slope, and rapid braking with a load. CM Lab’s forklift simulator training pack is a comprehensive solution that pushes learning beyond minimum requirements with certification preparation and advanced exercises such as loading a ramp. The result is safer and more competent operators.

The Forklift Simulator Training Pack is designed for CM Labs’ Edge series of simulators, including the portable Vortex Edge Plus as well as the motion-enabled Vortex Edge Max. It can also be bundled with CM Labs’ full fleet of earthmoving and lifting equipment training packs.

Forklift simulator training pack features

Progressive Learning

The Forklift Training Pack provides organizations with an industry-based curriculum complete with progressive learning exercises that cover everything from basic to advanced skills. Operators learn the fundamentals such as driving around objects and inclines, aligning the forks with the pallet and handling different loads, while also being exposed to more complex scenarios like working in confined spaces as well as driving with and positioning a ramp. Built-in certification exercises ensure operators receive the most comprehensive and practical training to better prepare for the real thing. Exercises include

Optimal Training Experience

A large environment allows operators to train both indoors and outdoors while a variety of surroundings and potential hazards such as pedestrians, power lines and racks ensure trainees gain exposure to true-to-life settings. Visual aids within the simulation such as the mini-map, load calculations, and stability triangle, which depicts the center of gravity of the forklift during the operation, provide users with additional tools to achieve success. A rear-view camera and mirrors deliver an optimal field of view for maximum situational awareness.

Forklift Operator Performance

The Forklift Simulator Training Pack tracks all operating performance metrics during training exercises, and rolls them up into a single score that updates in real time. You can customize the scoring system to take your most important operating criteria into consideration, such as:

Smart Training Technology

The Forklift Simulator 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, which ensures precision engineering and the most accurate behavior of components within the Forklift Simulator including:
