    Rubber-tyred Gantry Simulator

    Provide a safe learning environment and reduce incidents with the Vortex Rubber-tyred Gantry Crane simulator.

Rubber-tyred Gantry Simulator

The rubber-tyred gantry crane simulator (RTG) lets you prepare novices for the challenges of operating in a busy terminal. It provides a safe learning environment where they can get more seat time to learn the right behaviours without placing personnel or equipment at risk.

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

Competency Based Training

With the Vortex (RTG) Rubber-tyred Gantry Crane simulator, trainees learn equipment and operating best practices. They get more hands-on time without slowing down operations, and develop skills that will transfer directly to live equipment.

  • Progressive learning program to build competence and confidence
  • Full pre-operation and start-up procedures
  • Wide range of load types
  • Adjustable weather and wind conditions

True-to-Life Simulation

The Rubber-tyred Gantry Crane simulator leverages CM Labs’ advanced hoisting and rigging simulation engine to deliver an authentic simulation of equipment performance and accelerate skills development:

  • Gantry, Trolley and Hoisting functions
  • Fully articulated Bromma spreader
  • Carrying, load swing and collision with other objects
  • Load Moment Indicator (LMI)
  • Global Positioning System (GPS)
  • Collision detection using simulated rods (whiskers)

Complete Trainee Performance Report

CM Labs offers flexible customization options for the Rubber-tyred Gantry Crane simulator that allows the crane simulation to be adjusted to the unique needs and capabilities of the customer’s equipment:
  • Crane performance: Adjust and tune vehicles to specific capabilities (accelerations, max speeds, joystick deadband)
  • 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.”
