Canada-based CM Labs Simulation recently released new virtual software with Vortex Construction Equipment Simulators that aims to teach crane operation in a dense urban setting.

The Luffing Tower Crane Training Pack is reportedly the first simulation-based LTC training tool on the market, and includes visual distractions such as passing cars, planes and pedestrians. There is also a nighttime mode for the user, in addition to adverse weather conditions.

In addition to the urban coaching, according to the company, the pack allows student operators to learn the fundamentals of managing a luffing jib tower crane, including lift plans and load charts, boom inspection and use of a boom tip camera. Students will also learn the fundamentals of safety systems including load moment limiters, anti-back-tipping devices, clamshell brakes, derricking limiters and slewing limiters.

"Cities are tight working environments with most mandating the use of luffing tower cranes for safety reasons," said Seza Kouladjian, CM Labs' technical product manager. “While training on a real crane is both difficult and dangerous, our LTC Training Pack changes this dynamic, making training safer for everyone.”

The LTC pack also has expanded tools for training, mentoring and evaluation, including customizable scoring.
