    Forklift Simulator

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

Forklift Simulator Training

The Forklift Simulator Training Pack teaches forklift operators the skills they need to work safely and productively on the jobsite and warehouse environment. The simulation accurately simulates machine stability during manuevers and load handling operations.

Following industry best practices, trainees learn basic vehicle handling skills such as working in confined spaces and on ramps. Trainees also learn about load handling, making tight turns, fork spacing, positioning, and rapid breaking, before taking control of the real equipment.

CM Lab’s forklift simulator training pack is a comprehensive solution that pushes learning beyond minimum requirements with certification preparation and advanced exercises. The result is safer and more competent operators.

Forklift Simulator Features

Competency-Based Training

The safe operation of forklifts requires a solid foundation of knowledge and ability. The Forklift Simulator Training Pack is built around skill-specific exercises which are designed to teach equipment operation, highlight areas for trainee improvement, and present more challenging techniques when the operator is ready.

Exercises include:

True-to-Life Simulation

The Forklift Training Pack delivers a true-to-life, stimulating learning experience based on the behaviour and mechanics of the real machine, including load limits and the ability to topple when improperly handled.

Offering a variety of loads along with instructor-triggered challenges, machine faults, and pedestrian traffic, this training pack offers an environment that accelerates skills development.

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

Applying CM Labs’ Smart Training Technology™, the Forklift Simulator Training Pack is the only simulator on the market that accurately replicates machine stability and behavior – providing real-world training opportunities to help reduce the risk of accidents.

The simulated machine behaviour helps operators gain a better feel for weight distribution, hydraulics system, powertrain, and mast and forks. By improving lifting capacity and cycle times, operators ultimately reduce production costs.

Comprised of proprietary and patented algorithms, the Smart Training Technology ensures precision engineering of the simulated equipment; delivering the most transferable operator skills anywhere, outside of the real equipment.
