Forest machine simulators for varied training
Ponsse simulators offer a modern training environment for the use of harvesters, forwarders and PONSSE Opti information systems. A simulator is a cost-effective and safe environment for training new operators, forest machine professionals and service mechanics.
A simulator also acts as an excellent tool in the research and development of work because individual situations can be repeated, and different harvesting methods can be compared.
The simulator’s harvester section allows actual harvesting tasks to be practised, different thematic exercises to be performed, and the operation and use of a machine’s control and measuring system to be studied. In the forwarder section, users can practise how to operate and load a forwarder and control a crane in realistic conditions.
Simulators are also excellent for training service employees. For example, the trainer can simulate various machine malfunctions that can then be solved using Opti’s fault diagnostics. As a new feature, calibration exercises and reporting help to learn how to maintain the machine’s measuring accuracy.
