CM Labs, the leading specialist in simulators and simulation software for construction & port equipment, recently announced the launch of a new STS Crane Simulator Training Pack.
The STS Training Pack joins CM Labs’ Vortex line up of quayside cranes and yard-side mobile equipment simulators.
“The innovative STS Crane Simulator Training Pack is designed to bridge the gap between the classroom and the real equipment. It provides progressive learning for safe lifting operations, improved STS crane productivity, and real-world crane operator skills. It can be deployed 24/7 in all climate conditions, as a safe, productive training environment that makes it possible for operators to continuously learn or upskill, even when the real equipment is in use, or undergoing maintenance,” CM Labs stated.
The STS crane operator training solution incorporates CM Labs’ Smart Training Technology, which has advantages over other simulation products in the market. Smart Training Technology is comprised of CM Labs’ proprietary and patented algorithms, and includes real-time simulation features that are unique in the market. This means training is based on real data and real machines, allowing novices and experienced to train operators in a risk-free safe learning environment.
“As a result, all cables, containers, and breakbulk in the virtual world behave the same way as they do in the real world. This makes it possible for trainers to recreate a wide range of realistic training conditions and events that are only safe to experience on the simulator, including snag loads, vessel motion, extreme weather, crane faults, and more”.
