You will teach your trainees in real-life conditions

Our front shovel simulator is designed to safely train operators in, from basic handling of the machine through to carrying out work in real conditions, for example:

  • Taking up position
  • Movement coordination
  • Moving around being aware of the gauge
  • Position in a loading area
  • Load optimization
  • Interaction with dumpers and loading
  • Production cycle
  • Breakdown simulation

You will measure and monitor your trainees’ results

Our front shovel simulator is designed to train operators in safety, from basic handling of the machine to real-life operations:

  • Coordinating movements and following complex trajectories
  • Maintaining a constant approach angle
  • Perform leveling
  • How to load a dumper truck while optimizing operator productivity
  • Know how to guide the dumper into position and sequence loading cycles
  • Develop skills in material selectivity and endurance

Generate individual skills assessments and certificates

Our simulators are connected directly to our supervision software (GSTA), allowing you to analyze your operators’ results live, store their data and export their results at any time.
