CM Labs unveils boom truck simulator

CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex training simulators, has released its Boom Truck Simulator Training Pack. It is the only simulation-based product that accurately replicates machine instability and the ability to deploy outriggers, the company said.

CM Labs Simulations has released its Boom Truck Simulator Training Pack.

The boom truck typically presents an increased likelihood of training incidents, as it is often the first equipment that inexperienced operators are exposed to. CM Labs’ training pack presents a safer alternative for initial training while mitigating the increased fuel costs and wear and tear that typically result from novice handling.

The boom truck simulator can deploy outriggers to level the equipment before operation, and also simulates the swing effect of the load, making it an ideal training tool for utility companies as well as line worker training schools. Trainees acquire skills including controls familiarization, outrigger deployment, load handling and pole setting procedures. Dedicated exercises also prepare trainees for CCO & EICA certification exams.

The Boom Truck Training Pack runs on the motion-enabled Vortex Edge Max and the fully immersive Vortex Advantage, paired with control levers. It also runs on the desktop Vortex Edge Plus, with heavy-duty joystick controls.

“When it comes to boom truck operations, this simulator is the first solution on the market to successfully close the gap between the classroom and the worksite,” said David Clark, product marketing manager, CM Labs. “Ultimately, the result is a trained operator who fully understands what is expected on the job, in terms of safety, efficiency, and respect for the machine.”
