Company Launches

Liebherr Simulator (LiSIM) for Operator Training

Training on the Liebherr simulator

  Liebherr launched LiSIM for operator training on deep foundation equipment and crawler cranes up to 300 t for the first time at Conexpo 2014 in Las Vegas (USA). The simulator is not only available as easy-to-transport containerized solution but also as classroom solution and as space-saving cab solution. Based on original software and hardware the Liebherr simulators increase both productivity and safety by providing a cost-effective and highly efficient operator training solution. Liebherr simulators help trainees to significantly improve their skills in a virtual but realistic environment. The resulting increase in skills allows for safe and productive operation in the real world. For the simulator the LB 28 rotary drilling rig and the LR 1300 crawler crane have been modelled. The simulation replicates all aspects of the machine’s real functions and offers several different training scenarios. The development of this advanced training tool is driven by extensive experience of Liebherr in highly immersive crane operator training. In 2013 the company launched its range of maritime simulators for ship to shore, rubber tyre gantry, mobile harbour and offshore cranes.
