CM Labs to introduce new training solutions at The Utility Expo

Cm Labs branded wheel excavator

CM Labs will introduce new training simulators for wheel excavators, walkaround inspections and support training programs at The Utility Expo, held Sept. 26 to 28  in Louisville, Kentucky. 

CM Labs’ latest scalable simulation solutions train for high-risk procedures in a safe environment, improving technical expertise and increasing line operator productivity. 

The simulation training for wheeled excavators focuses on situational awareness and reducing safety risks within a dense urban environment. 

As well, the new training pack for excavators  includes heavy duty bucket and narrow tiltrotator with a live attachment change exercise.

The walkaround inspection simulator will feature training for excavator operators to identify issues on equipment to help improve jobsite safety and productivity. 

 As well, CM Labs’ support training programs with instructor operator station enables trainers to monitor, assess and engage trainees via tablet or single workstation, personalized learning paths, updated metrics reporting and new administrator functionalities.

“With the ongoing need for qualified labour, now, more than ever before, CM Labs’ customers need the best possible operator learning outcomes,” said Lisa Barbieri, CM Labs’ Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Relations. 

“The ultra-realism of our simulation and advanced reporting insights will future-proof utility training programs and recruitment needs by addressing long-term training needs.”

Data-based training

Comprised of proprietary and patented algorithms, CM Labs’ simulation training is based on real data and authentic machine behaviour that interacts with its environment and materials just as they do in the real world. 

“Our simulations ensure training teams have the flexibility to mobilize line workers efficiently. With hot swappable controls, and quick jump starts between all simulated equipment, there is less time away from the worksite and no need to take equipment off contracts,” said Davis Siu, CM Labs’ Product Manager. “The authentic replication of equipment and simulated risky situations means line operators can train for safety, in safety.”

Based in Montreal, Quebec, CM Labs builds simulation-based solutions to help clients design advanced equipment and prepare for skilled operations. 

Through its Vortex Studio platform, CM Labs provides capabilities for training simulators, mission rehearsal, virtual prototyping, and testing.

CM Labs wide range of earthmoving and lifting simulation training packs include digger derrick, boom truck, telehandler, compact track loader, rough terrain crane, backhoe, forklift, and the newly released wheeled excavator.
