Heavy Machinery Training Simulators

There is a strong demand in Australia for simulation products to improve driver and operator training on mining and civil engineering machines.

The HFX Series IV USB hydraulic excavator simulator joystick has
been showcased in Australia for use in hand operated and high
operating force applications. These heavy duty joysticks for
excavator simulator training are available with a number of high
function handles in single, dual or triple axis configurations
tailored for the excavator simulators. With a USB 1.1 HID compliant
interface, the excavator simulator joystick inputs via Microsoft
DirectX, and is recognised as a standard HID game controller

Using exercises focus on muscle memory and safe operating
procedures, Simlog’s Hydraulic Excavator is a specialised PC-based
excavator training device that puts drivers in the virtual
simulator cabin of a modern hydraulic excavator. With 12 simulation
modules of increasing difficulty, from basic operation of the boom
and carrier to trenching and truck loading, the excavator simulator
features Simlog’s exclusive “dynamic terrain modelling”

Superbly realistic, Crane Simulator 2009 provides virtual
operator training on some of the most compact and manoeuvrable
cranes in Australia. Minimum system requirements for Crane
Simulator 2009 include Windows Vista/XP, 512 MB RAM, AMD Athlon 2.4
GHz or faster, 600 MB Hard Disk Space, Radeon 9800 Pro with 128MB,
CD-ROM Drive.

Crane Simulator 2009 offers potential crane drivers a variety of
challenges and scenarios to master, including loading ships with
large containers, constructing pre-fab homes by moving ceilings and
doors into place, and bridge attachment. Depending on the level of
difficulty the crane simulator is set at, operators will need to
demonstrate total precision in placing a load.

Dump truck simulators have become an important tool for training
dump truck operators in Australia. Dump truck simulators accurately
imitate the actual interior of a dump truck, with the trainee
surrounded by controls and instruments placed at ergonomically
correct positions, including braking and steering systems, lights,
indicators, pedals, gauges and the horn. Dump truck simulators
provide a virtual, 3D mine along with artificially intelligent mine
support equipment and machinery to provide a complete dump truck
simulation experience, including loading, hauling, reversing and

Forklift Simulator 2009 allows forklift operators to be
virtually trained to manage the demanding tasks a forklift truck
driver needs to perform. The forklift simulator challenges drivers
to store goods in various warehouse sizes and load and unload
trucks and trains carriages in a given time frame.

Minimum system requirements include Windows XP/Vista, DirectX
9.0c, AMD-/Intel processor 1.8 GHz or higher (optimum 2.4 – 3 GHz),
RAM min. 512 MB (XP) / min. 1 GB (Vista), DirectX 9 compatible
graphic card, a sound card, and about 200 MB free disk space.

Forklift Simulator 2009 features six challenging assignments,
three different forklift trucks, and a driving license training
