CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex training simulators, today announced the availability of the new Motor Grader Training Pack, the latest addition to their construction equipment training catalogue.
Available for deployment on any Vortex simulator, the new Motor Grader Training Pack is powered by CM Labs’ Vortex Studio simulation and visualisation software. The result is an engineering-grade grader simulation that has been rigorously field-tested by experienced operators and instructors from equipment manufacturers and top training schools.
As with all CM Labs construction equipment simulator training packs, the motor grader training solution has been designed to bridge the learning gap between the classroom and the worksite. Because motor graders are expensive and extremely complex for novices to operate, the benefits of simulation training are even more pronounced. It is also ideal for operator assessment.
With a Vortex simulator running the Motor Grader Training Pack, operators can manipulate and position the simulated blade in the same way as on the real machine, including a functional saddle locking bar and automated cross-slope control.
Thanks to the training pack’s structured pedagogy, trainees can progress from basic controls familiarisation, to more advanced exercises, ranging from controls familiarisation to trailer loading and unloading, windrow management, material spreading, V-ditch operations, and more.
As trainees work through the exercises, their performance and abilities are objectively scored by the Vortex simulator, which measures metrics such as blade efficiency, grade quality, idle time and cycle time, fuel consumption, and more.
All Vortex construction training packs can be run from any Vortex simulator. This includes the immersive Vortex Advantage with optional motion base, the desktop-based Vortex Trainer, and the new Vortex Edge laptop simulator designed for classroom training.
