    Luffing Tower Crane Simulator

    Progressive training program for safe lifting, efficient operating, and complete worksite awareness in dense urban environments

Luffing Tower Crane Simulator

With the Vortex® Luffing Tower Crane Simulator (LTC), student operators learn the fundamentals of managing a luffing jib tower crane, including lift plans and load charts, boom inspection, use of a boom tip camera, and working in urban environments. They’ll also learn the fundamentals of safety systems including load moment limiters, anti-back-tipping devices, clamshell brakes, derricking limiters, and slewing limiters.

Operator Scoring

The Luffing 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

Best-in-class simulation

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

  • Adverse conditions: Time of day, shadows, nighttime operation, and weather (cloud cover, rain, snow, fog, and wind)
  • Crane boom and jib deflection
  • Stability and overloading risks
  • Cable collisions with worksite obstructions and the crane boom
  • Pendulums, snags, and collisions
  • Realistic training setting with visual distractions: Cars, planes, pedestrians, and trains passing through the environment
