Peoria, Ill.— Simformotion™ LLC – a leader in simulation training solutions – is excited to announce the extension of its agreement with Caterpillar to deliver heavy equipment training simulators around the world. The agreement underscores their commitment to training the world’s heavy equipment operators with state-of-the-art Cat® Simulators and the importance of their partnership in producing innovative training options.

The collaboration provides Simformotion with continued access to Cat technical data, product engineers, and operator experts, which enables Simformotion to create accurate and realistic operator training in Cat Simulators.

“For the last 15 years, we’ve been working together to develop Cat Simulators for the construction, mining and forestry industries. We will continue our focus of using technology to design Cat Simulators that directly affect safety training, increase operator productivity and reduce machine maintenance costs for years to come,” says Lara Aaron, Simformotion CEO.

The latest training simulator systems include the Backhoe Loader and Hydraulic Mining Shovel which feature authentic Cat controls and the ability to convert models from one to another on the same base unit.

Companion curriculum, SimScholars™, are available for each model. The online curriculums are a one-to-one match to Cat Simulators training exercises and include instructor guidance, videos, lessons, quizzes, and more, which can be used in the classroom or remotely.

Caterpillar and Simformotion are committed to using simulation technology to elevate heavy equipment training, increase safety, and reduce machine wear and tear.
