Provide operators with the skills required for safe, efficient excavating, loading, and trenching operations.
The Excavator Simulator Training Pack features the world’s first commercial application of an innovative new method of soil simulation. This realism immerses trainees in a virtual environment that promotes rapid skills acquisition — from excavating and trenching, to trailer loading, safety corridor management, and more.
With built-in scoring, pedagogy that encourages self-directed learning, and exercises that have multiple possible solutions, the Excavator Simulator Training Pack enables trainees to develop a sense of initiative and responsibility that transfers to the work site.
Exercises are designed to gradually build precision and confidence:
Advanced learning tools include a Grade Quality Sensor (GQS) overlay that indicates depth as well as the need for a safety corridor when excavating a trench. The Excavator Simulator Training Pack also provides objective measurements of operator performance and abilities. It measures performance metrics such as:
The Excavator Simulator Training Pack provides the most realistic simulation-based training available, resulting in an engaging learning experience that translates directly into work site skills. This includes the award-winning soil graphics that are the result of decades of academic research, as well as:
The Edge Series is a starter set of hydraulic excavator training exercises designed to run on the Vortex Edge simulator. They’re designed to complement your classroom theory with ready-to-go training materials:
– A basic controls exercise, which guides trainees through mobile crane functionality.
– A freeform exercise, which lets trainees lift and manoever various objects.
– A skills challenge exercise, which can be used to stimulate competition between trainees and benchmark their understanding.
The Hydraulic Excavator Training Pack is applicable to training programs for Tracked Hydraulic Excavator, Digger, and Power Shovel Excavator operators.
CM Labs’ Signal Person Training Station allows novice operators to train together to develop effective teamwork and communications.
While one trainee operates a crane on the Vortex simulator, another works cooperatively within the virtual jobsite, providing signals and guiding the operation through to successful completion via webcam and picture-in-picture display.
Vortex simulators are a rugged, flexible fit for classrooms of all sizes and budgets. With swappable controls and configurations ranging from the desktop to an immersive five-display simulator, they are built to run any of our training modules.
Our training packs are designed for deployment on the desktop Vortex Trainer or the full-immersion Vortex Advantage training simulators. They feature self-guiding, progressive learning programs, and best-of-class simulation, from cranes to excavators. With operator metrics captured at every step, they provide the most comprehensive simulator training available on the market.
With trainer resources that include an instructor operating station, classroom manager, and student database, we provide you with comprehensive tools for instructor-led training as well as trainee monitoring, scoring, and reporting.
All over the world, organisations of all sizes are using Vortex simulators to train safer, more efficient operators.
