Liebherr to show crane simulators at TOC container handling show
Liebherr will show its range of maritime crane simulators at the TOC Container Supply Chain Europe event, which takes place 25-27 June, 2013 in Ahoy, Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The exhibition and conference is the global meeting place for ports, terminals, shipping lines and third-party logistics providers.
Based on original software and hardware, the Liebherr simulators increase port safety and productivity by providing a cost-effective and highly efficient crane operator training solution. The range of simulated cranes includes ship-to-shore, rubber-tyred gantry, mobile harbour and offshore.
Liebherr Simulations (LiSIM) offers sophisticated solutions that allow trainees to significantly improve skills in a realistic but virtual maritime environment.
Training does not interfere with day-to-day port operations and is relatively inexpensive; trainees can spend extended time in the virtual environment, learning instinctively how to react to unexpected situations. This naturally increases safety in real cargo and container handling.
A major benefit of simulator training is the ability to simulate harsh environmental conditions when required. Even though it may be a calm and sunny day, the trainee can practice cargo handling in harsh weather conditions such as snowfall, heavy winds, torrential rain and high waves.
The sophisticated LiSIM environmental and physics engine allows for an unprecedented level of detail and realism. Thanks to this non-destructive virtual environment, the operator has the opportunity to learn the operational boundaries of the crane without any consequences.
Liebherr's training simulator is available to customers all over the world.
