    Increase trainee and operator productivity with the Ship Pedestal Crane Simulator Training Pack

Ship Pedestal Crane Simulator

CM Labs’ Ship Pedestal Crane Training Pack can run on any Vortex port equipment simulator, and helps operators acquire critical skills such as learning to “catch the swing” with different types of attachments, landing the spreader, and using cell guides to load containers.

Progressive training exercises develop operator skills for handling bulk and breakbulk (including pipes, coils, bags, rebar, and steel plates) as well as container unloading (20 40, and 45-foot containers). Additional exercises cover lifting forklift and hatch covers.

Ship Pedestal Crane Simulator Features

Skills that transfer to the real equipment

The Ship Pedestal Crane Training Pack incorporates CM Labs’ Smart Training TechnologyTM, resulting in a training tool that ensures skills learned during simulator seat time are transferred directly to the real equipment.

  • Progressive learning program replicating terminal operations
  • Working in and around ship holds
  • Lifting and landing loads including bulk cargo, break bulk, bags, logs, and containers
  • Managing multiple loads
  • Challenges including adjustable weather, wind, and waves

True-to-life simulation

CM Labs’ SPC Simulator Training Pack replicates equipment performance by modelling all major components to exact physical and mechanical properties, ensuring it feels like the real thing. It simulates:

  • Hoisting, slewing, booming, and hook rotator functions
  • Bulk material handling
  • Breakbulk specific rigging
  • Container handling
  • Simulated equipment faults

Flexible for unique training needs

The SPC Training Pack offers customization options that allow the training to be adjusted to your requirements:

  • Exercise Builder: Create new exercises as needed
  • Crane performance: Adjust and tune the simulated crane to match specific attributes (accelerations, max speeds, joystick deadband)
  • Scoring: Set specific, objective scoring criteria that match your priorities

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.”
