    Reach Stacker Simulator

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

Reach Stacker Simulator

The Vortex 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 a Vortex reach stacker simulator, they learn how to safely and efficiently operate equipment and master processes and traffic flow. This ensures skills learned on a Vortex 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

Flexible to Unique User Needs

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

  • 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.”

    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.”
