Tenstar offers stimulating machine training simulation
Tenstar's training simulators for new construction machine operators reduce company training costs, such as fuel and maintenance bills associated with real machine training.
One company at INTERMAT probably deserves ‘ten stars’ for safer cost-effective construction machine operator training.
Established in 2009, Swedish firm Tenstar Simulation (TS) offers simulator training programs for new operators of a wide spectrum of construction machines, including wheel and truck excavators, wheel loaders, and tower and lorry cranes.
Bespoke training simulator programs for individual construction industry-based companies, including machine manufacturers, can be developed by TS.
The firm is also continuing its work on prototype programs for mobile crane, dozer and forklift operators.
“With our training simulators, new machine operators start by learning about the machine and its components, then we do simple driving exercises before increasing the difficulty,” explained TS marketing manager Nancy Hebbelinck.
“When new starter operators learn on a real machine, accidents can also happen and things get broken. New operators training on a simulator can get a feel of working with [machine control] sticks on their own while instructors work with others on real machine-based training.”
