Train your operators in real-life conditions

Our headsaw simulator has a library of themes designed to make the operator aware of various constraints:

  • Adapt to logs with specific shapes and defects
  • Follow cutting diagrams to meet orders placed
  • Take into account special cutting requirements linked to the order
  • Working safely and respecting best practices
  • Product dispatch
  • Type of wood (hardwood or softwood)

Measure and track your operators’ results

During practice, our simulator measures the operator’s skills and efficiency according to various competence criteria, such as:

  • Know how to position the log on the carriage in terms of alignment and orientation
  • Control truck speed and adapt it to situations
  • Maintain proper blade guide height
  • Adapt cutting techniques to order requirements and the type of logs encountered
  • Precise cutting
  • Manage product dispatch

Plan your sessions, measure skills evolution and export results!

Our simulators are connected directly to our supervision software (GSTA), allowing you to track skills, schedule sessions, store simulation performance data and export results at any time.
