CTO Excavator Simulator

The CTO Excavator Simulator has been designed to train excavator operators in the proper use of an extensive range of mining, construction and demolition attachments.

Most of the attachments are based on real attachments manufactured by Atlas Copco Construction Tools. The CTO Excavator Simulator currently offers training in the following areas:

  • Hydraulic hammer: breaking and reduction in a quarry, contouring in tunnels. Primary and secondary demolition in urban environments. Underwater jobs.
  • Bucket: transport of rocks and rubble.
  • Grapples: loading of rubble.
  • Cutter: primary demolition.
  • Pulverizer: secondary demolition.

These attachments can be mounted on different excavating machines, with either tracks or wheels.

The CTO Excavator Simulator comes with several different training scenarios, each with corresponding vehicles and suitable attachments:

  • A quarry, in which the student will be trained in breaking and reduction procedures with the hydraulic hammer.
  • A tunnel, where he will be trained in contouring with the hydraulic hammer.
  • A harbor, in which he will be trained in the use of the hydraulic hammer to do underwater jobs.
  • A city area, where the trainee can use all the different vehicles and attachments available for the demolition of a building.

The Atlas Copco Boomer Simulator is available in a wide range of configurations designed to satisfy almost any requirement:

The most compact and transportable version requires only a laptop computer. Optionally, we can provide this version with additional controls, such as joysticks, pedals and a steering wheel to enhance the experience.

The high-end version features a highly realistic cab replica, 4 Full HD screens for a wide panoramic view and, optionally, an advanced motion system capable of accurately reproducing the motion of the simulated vehicle. A separate instructor station allows monitoring and interacting with the simulation, as well as triggering malfunctions.

The CTO Excavator Simulator is being used succesfully by Atlas Copco since 2009.
