Tower Crane Simulator

tower crane simulatorThis tower crane simulation software puts you at the controls of a modern freestanding top-slewing tower crane with trolley jib. Instrument readings include working slew angle, working radius, lowering depth (hook height) and load weight. There is also a simulated three-way switch for hoist gear selection. At the touch of a button, you can even change the viewpoint during the simulation.

Software description

There are six simulation modules of increasing difficulty. Early modules introduce the basic crane motions, while later simulation modules add obstacles and load charts, ending with zigzag trajectory following exercises. Key performance indicators measure how quickly and how carefully the simulated work is performed, including execution time, maximum load sway, number of load/obstacle collisions, and number of two-blocking occurrences.

tower crane simulatorSimulation results are automatically saved, so trainees can progress at their own pace without trainer supervision. To simplify the record keeping, we offer a database product called Simulation Manager; the same database can be used with all of the personal simulators we offer.


The tower crane simulator is available in English, French or Spanish.

Software pricing

Please contact us for pricing of a commercial software license for the tower crane simulator. Small accidents due to inexperience can cost thousands of dollars in replacement parts and downtime, far in excess of your investment in this training tool. This priceless investment in the health and productivity of your workers represents an excellent training value and improves operator safety.

If you are preparing for CCO operator certification, think of this as a small addition to the investment you will already be making in examiner accreditation and test site preparation.
