Volvo Exc 500 – Excavator Simulator

The Volvo Excavator 500 Simulator features an authentic operator environment with original controls, a high performing motion system and an industrial-grade visualization system. It is designed for simplicity of use and to be as close to reality as possible. The simulator comes with over twenty-five different scenarios that cover the basics of how to operate the Excavator. The operator is guided through starting, stopping and maneuvering the vehicle as well as performing load and dig cycles in diverse real-life environments. The scenarios include both guided lessons and free operation playgrounds. As always, the focus is on getting the most out of the operator and maximizing productivity.

In addition, there are two extensions available, Volvo Demolition and Volvo Pipelayer. Volvo Demolition adds six new scenarios where the operator learns to use different attachments used for deconstructing buildings. Pipelayer, as the name suggests, teaches how to lay pipes and give the operator familiarity with the load management system software (LMS).

Example of training scenario

In this production scenario, the goal is to load a crusher with material. The operator should be careful not to damage the machine while operating. Exposing the machine to excessive wear will reduce the score. The score will be based on the operators productive skills, as well as on their ability to work in a fuel-efficient manner.

Operator Performance System

After the completion of every scenario, a performance report is presented to highlight what the operator did right and where improvements can be made. Maybe the completion time and production score were great but at the cost of high fuel consumption and unnecessary wear and tear? The report helps to pinpoint issues that would be difficult to detect with a real machine, hence avoiding costs and improving safety.

Value of training

Everyone thinks that training is good, but is it worth it? In real life, this question is often hard to answer. With the Volvo Simulators, you get the facts. Unambiguous data on who actually needs training and how valuable the training has been.
