• CM labs – Mobile Harbour Crane Simulator

    Mobile Harbour Crane Simulator

    A training solution that delivers total operator readiness
    for the visual & lifting challenges of mobile harbour crane operations

Mobile Harbour Crane Simulator

CM Labs’ MHC Simulator Training Pack delivers a safe training environment that is available 24/7 and in all weather. It is designed to provide trainees with total preparedness for any potential MHC operating challenge, including complex lift trajectories, compromised views, and unexpected equipment failures.

Mobile Harbour Crane Simulator Features

Designed for all operator skill levels

With a focus that goes far beyond basic controls familiarisation, the MHC Simulator Training Pack exposes operators to conditions that are challenging or unsafe to replicate outside the simulator, including:

  • night-time operations,
  • compromised view due to glare,
  • twist lock failures,
  • rigging breaks,
  • snags,
  • and more.

Powerful operator assessment tools

The MHC Simulator Training Pack comes with unique operator assessment tools, including a real-time Load Path Graph and real-time Hook Block Map.  

The MHC Simulator Training Pack also tracks all operating performance metrics during training exercises, and rolls them up into a single score that updates in real time. 

 

Flexible training and assessment

The MHC crane simulator offers flexible customization options that ensure training can be adjusted according to your needs:

  • Exercise builder: Add unlimited training exercises in line with evolving training needs
  • Crane performance: Adjust and tune cranes to specific capabilities (accelerations, max speeds, joystick deadband)
  • Scoring: Set your scoring criteria for each training exercise, or use the scoring criteria as defined out of the box

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.”

  • “What stands out about the simulator? Flexibility — the simulator can create a range of different conditions for trainees."

    Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal
  • “You could definitely see that Vortex was more realistic.”
