CYBERQUIP Crane Simulators provide ultra-realistic, safe and cost-effective training for your operators.
Operator skill and experience is critical to ensuring safe and efficient crane operation.
CYBERQUIP Crane Simulators use cutting-edge simulator technology and highly sophisticated training techniques to rapidly develop operator skills and build experience without tying up working machines or exposing your cranes and people to unnecessary risk.
ThoroughTec’s Crane Simulators are true to the original equipment in every way, from the operator’s cabin with its precisely replicated layout and OEM controls, to the class-leading simulation of your specific crane’s performance characteristics. CYBERQUIP Crane Simulators operate in photo-realistic 3D virtual environments, richly populated with AI entities, where operators can practice a multitude of tasks and applications, all within the comfort and safety of the simulator.
Benefits of Simulation Training
Training on a CYBERQUIP Crane Simulator allows your operators to gain confidence and build experience in a safe and controlled environment. Operators are taught to diagnose equipment faults, identify operational hazards and respond effectively to emergency situations, without exposing man or machine to any actual risk and harm.
Lower Maintenance and Training Costs
Your crane fleet is an extremely expensive asset, it is there to work. Training related down time is a direct opportunity cost and that is before one considers wear and tear or potential damage caused by novice operators. By utilising CYBERQUIP Crane Simulators for the lion’s share of your practical operator training, all of this risk and cost falls away, leaving your cranes to work and giving you confidence in the competence and proficiency of your operators.
Increased Training Efficiency
CYBERQUIP Crane Simulators bridge the gap between traditional classroom-based learning and hot-seat training in real equipment. Learning is enhanced through the combination of visual and audio cues, motion feedback, and the immersion provided by the ultra-realistic simulation. Muscle memory is developed faster and learned skills retained longer than otherwise attainable through traditional training methods.
With CYBERQUIP Mobile Crane Simulators, your operators will learn how to safely, get the most out of your cranes, even under the most demanding of circumstances. The simulator automatically monitors operator behaviour and measures performance across a range of categories, providing you with comprehensive insight into their aptitude, ability and job-readiness. Specific areas of weakness are highlighted and the training system automatically adapted to target those behavioural aspects for improvement.
Accurate Vehicle Replication
ThoroughTec’s mil-standard engineering and unparalleled experience modelling the most complex armoured vehicles and mega-mining machines, ensures that CYBERQUIP Crane Simulators represent the most realistic training experience possible. Your operators will view the virtual world on three ultra-large format, high-resolution projected displays, allowing for the effective execution of both driving and lifting operations. The entire crane operator’s cabin is carefully replicated and utilises OEM controls to exactly match the ergonomics and function of the real equipment. Importantly, as an independent, OEM-agnostic supplier, ThoroughTec has the ability to develop crane simulators for any OEM’s cranes, such as Liebherr, Grove, Tadano, Demag, Konecranes, Kobelco and Zoomlion.
Virtual Crane World
CYBERQUIP Crane Simulators are delivered with an ultra-realistic, 3D virtual world. This generic training environment is modelled on a real-world construction site and includes incomplete buildings, pipework, tarred and gravel roads, construction vehicles and a number of relevant lifting objects and applications, all perfectly suited to training and evaluating your operators. However, should a customer have more specific, site or task training requirements, we are always happy to develop a customised virtual world to perfectly cater to those training needs.
Training and Evaluation Tools
CYBERQUIP Crane Simulator exercises may be configured to address the widest possible range of training requirements such as: crane set up, truss placement, pipe laying, various loading and unloading tasks, container lifting, general driving and rough terrain driving. To further complement the training experience, the instructor has the ability to adjust site conditions, time of day and weather conditions or inject sub-system failures and advanced emergency situations.
The CYBERQUIP Crane Simulator continually monitors the operator’s actions and reactions, measuring the practical application of knowledge, adherence to safety procedures, correct equipment handling and response to emergency situations and failures. The resultant performance reports together with the instructor’s 3D after-action review and debriefing tool suite, provide a complete training and evaluation system.
CYBERQUIP Crane Simulators are the ultimate training tool, the last word in efficient and effective operator skills development.
