CM Labs introduces collaborative learning solution for crawler crane operator training

Vortex collaborative learning solution, now available in the Crawler Crane Training Pack, allows two trainees to practice tasks such as tandem crane lifts.
Vortex collaborative learning solution, now available in the Crawler Crane Training Pack, allows two trainees to practice tasks such as tandem crane lifts.

CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex training simulators, today announced the release of a unique collaborative learning solution that engages two trainees simultaneously. 

Built into CM Labs' Crawler Crane Training Pack, this new simulation-based training solution teaches the lead crane operator how to safely and efficiently manoeuver a steel pipe load in tandem with a secondary crane, operated from another simulator connected on the network. It can be deployed in multiple configurations, with operators working at any combination of CM Labs simulators, including the motion-enabled Vortex Advantage simulator, the desktop Vortex Edge Plus simulator, or the Instructor Operating Station (IOS). 

The collaborative learning scenario exposes operators to the requirement for constant communication and clear cues on the work site.

"Accidents happen when crews aren't used to each other. That's why collaborative training is effective training," says Drew Carruthers, CM Labs' Director of Training Solutions. "This training solution embeds multiple trainees in a truly engaging learning process, as well as helping develop critical teamwork and communication skills that are difficult to teach safely in the field."

"The effectiveness of the training experience is enhanced by CM Labs' Smart Training Technology," says Lisa Barbieri, CM Labs' VP of Marketing & Customer Experience. "These unique algorithms, some patented, deliver an unequivocal training tool, resulting in the most transferable skills anywhere, outside of the real equipment."

When paired with CM Labs' Instructor Operating Station, the Crawler Crane Training Pack includes real-time reporting of operator performance metrics, and customisable scoring, as well as lift plans.

CM Labs will feature the collaborative learning solution and other new products at bauma, April 8–14, in Munich, Germany. Visit CM Labs at booth C2.127 in the Canadian Pavilion.

Trail King Steerable Dolly Offers Better Maneuverability

Trail King recently updated the design of the steerable dolly with a front steer design. This new design allows for better maneuverability for a greater steering angle, tighter corners and less manual steering.  The dolly offers wireless manual steer and auto alignment after manual steer for an automatic self-centering function. Trail King has increased the hatbox rotation angle on this model with the ability to turn up to 65 degrees. The centralized grease port for turntable allows for easy upkeep and maintenance. This versatile dolly can be used with a Schnabel setup, replace standard wheel area for a steerable 13 axle configuration, or can be used in combination with a Jeep/Dolly for Bunk work.
