performance management

The Overhead Crane Training Pack gives trainers objective insight into operator performance and abilities. It measures operator performance metrics such as:

  • Tasks completed and time elapsed
  • Pendulums and load or hook collisions
  • Time spent in alarm states

Best-in-class simulation

The Overhead Crane Training Pack provides the most realistic simulation-based training available. This includes:

  • All major crane components such as bridge/trolley mechanics, cable/hoisting systems, and lift apparatus
  • Crane/load behavior and physical effects
  • Integration of actual crane load charts
Overhead crane simulator training

The Overhead Crane Training Pack is a valid simulation for training Overhead Crane, Bridge Crane, and Gantry Crane operators.

Signal person training station

Signal Person Training Station

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.
