    Ensure safe, efficient forklift operations with CM Labs Forklift Simulator

Forklift Simulator

The Vortex forklift simulator training pack teaches forklift operators the skills they need to work productively and safely. Following industry best practices, trainees learn basic vehicle handling skills, fork spacing and positioning, as well as how to safely handle a variety of loads before taking control of the real equipment.

Competency Based Training

The safe operation of forklifts requires a solid foundation of knowledge and ability. The Vortex forklift simulator training pack is built around skill-specific scenarios designed to demonstrate operator basics, highlight areas for trainee improvement, and present more challenging techniques when the apprentice is ready.

  • Drive and steer the forklift around objects.
  • Maneuver in confined spaces
  • Handle different fragile or sensitive loads without damaging them
  • Load and unload in challenging conditions
  • Avoid collisions

True-to-Life Simulation

The Vortex forklift simulator training pack delivers a true-to-life, stimulating 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 moves from developing specific skills to challenging students and accelerating development.

Flexible to Unique User Needs

CM Labs offers flexible customization options for the forklift simulator that allow the vehicle simulation to be adjusted to the unique needs and capabilities of the customer’s equipment:

  • Vehicle performance: Adjust and tune vehicles to specific capabilities (accelerations, max speeds, stearing deadband)
  • Scoring: Set customer-specific, objective scoring criteria for each scenario.
  • Branding: Customer logos can be integrated within the environment, on the vehicles, and on after-action reports
  • Further customizations: Available upon request

Equipment training packs

From ship-to-shore and ship pedestal cranes, to reachstacker and other cargo handling equipment, we offer a wide range of ports and container terminal equipment training simulators that can run on a single hardware platform.

Realistic simulators are an effective tool to evaluate and assess apprentices-in-training for both efficiency and safety. Tracking vital metrics across the entire training scenario, instructors can review statistics after completion, allowing for detailed after-action reviews and reporting.

Vortex Ports hardware platforms

With swappable controls, flexible configuration options, and industrial-grade hardware, CM Labs offers a family of scalable Vortex port simulator hardware platforms that can grow with your requirements and budget.

Instructor Operating Station

The IOS enables instructors to initiate Vortex Port Equipment Simulator exercise sessions and engage trainees by exposing them to the types of variable conditions they will experience in the real world.

  • “Having the simulator really does ensure that after three weeks, people are getting through the training system. It eliminates the opportunity cost of having a non-skilled operator on site.”
