    Ensure safe, efficient forklift operations with CM Labs' Forklift Simulator

Forklift Simulator

The 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 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 operator 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 Forklift Simulator 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.

Powerful instructor tools

With the optional Instructor Operating Station (IOS), you control the forklift operator training from your seat. Initiate exercise sessions, and engage trainees by exposing them to the types of variable conditions they will experience in the real world.

The IOS offers a host of automated monitoring tools, including complete real-time recording and reporting of machine and performance data. 

At any point during the training session, you can add bookmarks and notes to the training session for later review.

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 operators 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.

Ports simulator hardware platforms

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

  • “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.”
