Training for crawler cranes and deep foundation machines in a safe environment
The Liebherr simulators for crawler cranes up to 300 tonnes, duty cycle crawler cranes and deep foundation machines also offer the opportunity to train the handling and usage of the selected machine in a safe environment under extremely realistic conditions, for instance, tough environmental conditions can be reconstructed. At the same time, machine operators can significantly increase the efficiency on the construction site by training in a virtual environment.
The simulators are available in three different configurations: integrated in a classroom, as a space-saving cab solution or in an easy-to-transport container. Each of these models is equipped with a multifunctional instructor station for the trainer.
The Liebherr simulators enable challenging training. Full HD flat screens and high-quality surround speakers produce images and sounds, which are typically seen and heard in the operator's cab. In addition, the motion base ensures that the machine operator experiences realistic and accurate movements in the Liebherr simulator, comparable to a flight simulator.
Further development of the LiSIM concept
At Liebherr the new LiSIM simulators are a permanent feature in the training of machine operators, crane drivers and service technicians. Over 25 such LiSIM solutions from Liebherr-Werk Nenzing GmbH are already in use worldwide.
In future it is planned to process real planning data from the Liebherr Crane-Planner in the simulation. This means training on actual situations using 3D data from a real construction site can be carried out. For instance, processes can be practised, optimised and, if necessary, corrections can be made in the construction site planning.
In further development steps LiSIM solutions will be a link in a digitised value-added chain. Building Information Modelling (BIM) data will be displayed via an appropriate interface in the simulator. Interfaces for the LiDAT fleet management are also in preparation.
