Vortex Edge Max Overview

Not every organisation has the time, manpower, or equipment available for training when needed. That all changes with the Vortex Edge Max. Packed with CM Labs’ award-winning technology, the Vortex Edge Max simulator is an entry-level tool that develops transferable operator skills.

With a rugged, stripped down design that minimises simulator costs, the Vortex Edge Max is built to the same uncompromising standard that has made CM Labs the largest construction simulator vendor in the world.

The Vortex Edge Max can also be connected with other CM Labs simulators to enable cooperative crew training exercises.

Easy to transport, set up, and use. Wheel the Vortex Edge Max out of the shipping crate and get up and running in under 10 minutes.

Vortex Edge Max: Unique training benefits

Vortex Edge Max Simulator

Complete heavy equipment operator (HEO) training

The Vortex Edge Max comes bundled with a full fleet of cranes, our complete earthmoving catalogue, or both, for a total of 10 machines on one simulator.

Its heavy-duty controls are design to run any machine, and the screen rotates to provide an optimal field of view for every piece of equipment.

Real-world learning

With a motion platform that replicates the feel of the real equipment, best-in-class visuals, and exercises that replicate work site conditions, the Vortex Edge Max prepares trainees for the real world.

It comes fully embedded with CM Labs’ Smart Training TechnologyTM. Smart Training Technology results in solutions that deliver the most transferable operator skills anywhere, outside the real equipment.

Incorporating the Vortex Edge Max into your training reduces fuel emissions compared to training on the real equipment, while teaching operators how to operate machines efficiently and with minimal idle time.

Maximum learning effectiveness

The Vortex Edge Max logs key performance metrics, so operators learn productive machine use. Self-guided learning paths — from beginner to advanced — mean operators can train even when equipment or trainers are unavailable. Trainees can learn to operate equipment and practice challenging real-world scenarios, with no risk to equipment or themselves.

In addition, the Vortex Edge Max can connect to other simulators for tandem operations and crew training.
