CM Labs boosts operator training with simulation upgrades
Latest software is designed to accelerate skill development amongst operators of cranes and earthmoving machinery
The developer of Vortex training simulators, CM Labs Simulations, has issued a new software release for its construction simulator training packs. This new release is designed to boost trainee engagement by featuring heightened visuals, greater training immersion, and increased learning retention.
The company says it can help achieve faster, more efficient results in operator skills development, further reducing the gap between classroom training and the worksite.
The new release can be experienced across CM Labs’ fleet of construction and forestry training packs. The lifting simulations include the luffing tower crane, flat-top tower crane, crawler crane, rough terrain crane, boom truck, and forklift. The earthmoving simulations consist of the excavator, dozer, wheel loader, backhoe, and motor grader. The forester and harvester make up the forestry simulation training packs.
“The current boom in construction jobs is highlighting the importance of closing the skills gap,” says Lisa Barbieri, Vice President of Marketing & Product Management at CM Labs. “That’s why we are focused on providing the most immersive learning experience to deliver the world’s best training outcomes.”
Greater focus is being put on training and safety in recent years. Machinery rental specialist Johnson Arabia spoke to Construction Machinery Middle East about its safety efforts recently. A VR simulation and training system was also implemented at a Dubai Municipality sewage facility in February 2022 to boost efficiency and safety.
