CM Labs offers RTG training simulator

By Hannah Sundermeyer23 March 2021

CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex training simulators, has launched a simulator training solution for rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) operators with exercises featuring special loads and different container types.

Trainees can lock onto containers with twistlocks, and can also manage chain lifts and an overheight frame.

This is the only RTG training solution that provides exercises for working with overheight, open-top, breakbulk, and liquid containers, as well as standard 20-, 40-, and 45-foot containers, the company said. Trainees can lock onto containers with twistlocks, and can also manage chain lifts and an overheight frame. The simulation accurately represents twistlock behaviour and provides operators with the realistic experience of locking the spreader onto the container.

Using this simulator, operators can experience the effects of unbalanced loads. As a result, they learn the consequences of different maneuvers, in a controlled training environment. They also learn how to work with intermodal trailers and ITVs.

The solution’s learning exercises are designed to improve trainee productivity, by enhancing their ability to operate safely and efficiently, as well as teaching the skills required to work with all types of loads under different weather conditions. Options are included for both daytime and nighttime operations.

When paired with CM Labs’ Instructor Operating Station (IOS), the training pack allows trainers to introduce specific challenges at any time, including terminal congestion, overweight containers, and more.

Instructors can create custom exercise sequences at any time, and also customize how the simulated equipment responds to operating controls. The IOS can be installed at a distance from the simulators to comply with safety requirements, or even in an adjacent room.
