• CM labs – Reach Stacker Simulator

    Reach Stacker Simulator

    The Reach Stacker Simulator provides cargo handling operators with the training they need to achieve higher productivity standards.

Reach Stacker Simulator

The reach stacker simulator lets novices learn how to operate the equipment and get up to speed faster. With more hands-on training time, trainees move to the port compromising the safety or efficiency of day-to-day operations.

Discover why Vortex simulators are used by ports and terminals around the world.

Competency Based Training

When trainees learn on CM Labs’ reach stacker simulator, they learn how to safely and efficiently operate equipment and master processes and traffic flow. This ensures skills learned on the simulator are transferred directly to the real equipment.

  • Progressive learning program
  • Full pre-operation and start-up procedures
  • Multiple container types, including 20′, 40′, 45′ and overheight containers
  • Challenge students with inclement weather and realistic simulation of faults

True-to-Life Simulation

The reach stacker simulator delivers authentic equipment behavior. It models all major mechanical components to manufacturer specifications, accelerating skills development. It simulates:

  • Equipment speed, weight, acceleration and forces
  • Boom configuration for five containers high in first row and four high on second and third rows
  • Bomb cart and intermodal trailer methods for delivering and unloading containers
  • Automatic and manual spreader modes
  • Integrated with machine control system

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 Vortex port simulator hardware platforms that can grow with your requirements and budget.

Remote Training Tools

  • “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.”

    Port of Tilbury
  • “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.”
