CM Labs at Bauma 2019 – Product Preview

New releases include full-team training capabilities and innovative application of augmented reality

Wire Rope industry Supplier DirectoryPRODUCT REVIEW - CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex training simulators, announced that it will be releasing a host of new training technologies at Bauma 2019. Each element is designed to work independently, or as part of a total team learning solution.

CM Labs Augmented Reality
CM Labs’ unique tandem lift simulation will be on display for the first time at Bauma 2019.

CM Labs will be launching its new Augmented Reality (AR) application, which makes it possible for instructors to bring a virtual mobile crane right into the classroom, where trainees can interact with it, conduct walkarounds, and learn the fundamentals of machine inspection.

Once trainees are familiar with the equipment, they can get behind the controls of an equipment simulator and work through the built-in training curriculum, or focus on the development of specific operator skills.

Two training simulators will be on display at CM Labs’ booth: the immersive Vortex Advantage and the desktop Vortex Edge Plus. Both simulators can run CM Labs’ full catalogue of lifting and earthmoving training packs, including Mobile Crane, Flat-top Tower Crane, Luffing Tower Crane, Crawler Crane, Excavator, Wheel Loader, Backhoe, Dozer, Motor Grader, and more.

These simulators are designed to run independently, or as part of a unique tandem lift operation that will be on display for the first time at Bauma 2019, allowing two trainees to work simultaneously and cooperatively to complete a crawler crane lifting exercise.

In addition, CM Labs will be displaying its Signalperson Training Station, which allows a third team member to provide hand signals to the operators, while a fourth team member can supervise the operation, or inject challenges using the Instructor Operating Station.

“The impact of today’s training simulators goes far beyond equipment and controls familiarisation,” says Drew Carruthers, CM Labs’ Director of Training Solutions. “With full team training, each member of the team is fully engaged in developing skills and best practice techniques, while also acquiring the collaboration skills that are vital to safety and efficiency on the work site.”

Winner of recent awards for product innovation (Heavy Equipment Guide magazine) as well as top new product (Construction Equipment magazine), CM Labs will display the full team training experience at booth C2.127 in the Canadian Pavilion.
