Reach Stacker Simulator

CM Labs’ Reach Stacker Simulator provides the most advanced training available, with exercises featuring complex lifts and different container types.

This is the only solution providing exercises for working with challenging container locations within a stack.

20-, 40-, and 45ft containers can be stacked five high in training scenarios, and the reachstacker can reach containers in the second and third rows.

Additionally, trainers can create and edit custom task sequences of the most common or most challenging container moves

A comprehensive training solution

Along with overheight, open-top, and liquid containers, operators also learn how to work with intermodal trailers and ITVs. Using this simulator, operators can experience the effects of unbalanced loads and other causes of machine instability. As a result, they learn the consequences of different maneuvers, in a controlled training environment.

The solution’s embedded learning exercises are designed to improve operator productivity, by enhancing their ability to drive safely in restricted spaces, as well as teaching the skills required to work with all types of loads under different weather conditions. Options are included for both daytime and nighttime operations.

Flexible solution adapts to terminal needs

When paired with CM Labs’ Instructor Operating Station (IOS), the Reach Stacker training pack allows trainers to introduce specific challenges at any time, including overload or uneven load distribution, proximity to personnel, and potholes. The IOS can be installed at a distance from the simulators to comply with safety requirements, or even in an adjacent room.

For objective assessment of pre-screening or evaluation outcomes, the instructor can configure and generate comprehensive reports, with a scoring system that port terminals and training schools can customise to highlight their most important standards, so that new operators can ramp up even faster.

Complete Trainee Performance Report

With actionable guidance and clear progress reports, evaluating whether an operator is ready for live operations has never been easier. CM Labs’ simulators help instructors track skills progress using objective metrics, including:

  • Number of collisions
  • Unsafe operations
  • Aggressive landings
  • Moves per hour
  • And more

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.”
