New simulator training for FLTs

Montreal-based CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex training simulators, recently unveiled its new Forklift Simulator Training Pack.


The new training pack “allows institutions to go beyond minimum training requirements”, CM Labs said. “With the Forklift Training simulations operators can prepare for certification and learn advanced exercises like loading a ramp.”


“The forklift is the most popular piece of heavy equipment, but it’s also the one with the highest incident rates,” says Julien Richer-Lanciault, Product Manager at CM Labs. “Because the forklift can be extremely unstable, overturns are common; in fact, it’s leading cause of fatalities involving lift trucks. With our training pack students acquire a thorough understanding of the machine’s limits so they can safely operate a forklift and avoid such hazards,” says Lanciault.


The Forklift Simulator Training Pack is designed for CM Labs’ Edge series of simulators, including the portable Vortex Edge Plus as well as the motion-enabled Vortex Edge Max. Incorporating CM Labs’ patented Smart Training Technology ensures that the forklift simulation accurately replicates machine instability when executing manoeuvres like tight turns with the load high in the air, driving down a slope with a load and rapid braking with a load. “Just like on the actual forklift, operators get a real feel of the machine’s instability when handling goods. Visual aids within the simulation such as the mini-map, load calculations, and stability triangle, which depicts the centre of gravity of the forklift during operation, provide users with additional tools to achieve success. A rear-view camera and mirrors deliver an optimal field of view for maximum situational awareness,” CM Labs said.


The Training Pack includes progressive learning exercises that cover fundamentals such as driving around objects and inclines, aligning the forks with the pallet and handling different loads, plus more complex scenarios like working in confined spaces as well as driving with and positioning a ramp. Built-in certification exercises with customizable scoring allow users to weight each metric for objective and standardized evaluation.
