Over the last fifteen-plus years, ForgeFX Training Simulations has created a large and diverse collection of custom simulation-based training projects and interactive 3D training simulations. The custom simulation-based training examples in this showcase are representative of the range and types of projects we have developed.

Equipment Operator Training Simulator

Simulators are ideal tools for training heavy equipment operators to operate sophisticated machinery. They are cost-effective, safe, and efficient methods for training all concepts and skills from controls familiarization to procedure compliance. Simulation training maximizes productivity in the real world and increases a company’s bottom line via greater workforce efficiency.

Heavy Rail Training Simulator
Washington Metro Area Transit Authority This heavy rail operator training simulator was developed by ForgeFX Simulations for the Washington Metro Area Transit Authority, a government agency that operates transit service in the Washington metropolitan area. ForgeFX developed this rail operator training simulator for Metro heavy rail rapid transit system operators in order to train operators faster and for a fraction of the cost, all within a safe, risk-free virtual environment.

Front-End Wheel Loader Training Simulator
joy-global-square-logo
This wheel loader training simulator was developed by ForgeFX for Joy Global’s front-end wheel loader, the LeTourneau 2350. It is the largest rubber-tired loader in the world, with a standard operating capacity of 160,000 pounds and a 53 cubic foot bucket. This front-end wheel loader training simulator was built by ForgeFX as part of Joy Global’s  ProMiner™ Training Simulators suite of heavy equipment training simulators.

Oil and Gas Drilling Rig Simulator
Schramm

The Schramm oil and gas rig training simulator allows operators to train on the new standard of oil and gas drilling rig. Featuring full 360° walking portability for fast moves from hole to hole without the traditional limits of two-axis rail-mounted systems, in the hands of well-trained operators, the rig facilitates higher productivity.

Job-Process Training Simulations

Many jobs do not require heavy equipment operation. However, simulations are just as relevant to familiarize workers with challenges, job roles and safety requirements of their work environments. These simulations provide significant return on investment via increased worker productivity. Job-process simulations are used to teach and test job-based procedures, allowing personnel to practice critical components of the tasks required of them. This all takes place in a safe virtual environment where mistakes become learning opportunities instead of costly mishaps.
Livestock Manager Training Simulation

Livestock Manager Training Simulation

Military Personnel Training Simulation
ddmat
The military has a longstanding tradition of employing job training simulations to prepare troops for a wide array of job roles.

One specific example is the following simulation which allows soldiers to practice assembling a portable armored wall system, a mission-critical defensive structure, quickly in a safe and risk-free virtual environment. This military training simulation was developed for Dynamic Defense Materials.

Virtual Reality Applications

Virtual Reality applications take advantage of small headset hardware devices to immerse people in virtual worlds. Users can move around exterior and interior spaces, exploring the objects contained in the space at a more accurate level than when experienced on a flat monitor. Virtual Reality (VR) applications offer a wide field of view, precise head-tracking and low latency that delivers an immersive experience that closely simulates a physical presence in a computer-simulated reality.

Google Cardboard VR

Google Cardboard: “a virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) platform developed by Google for use with a fold-out cardboard mount for a mobile phone. It is intended as a low-cost system to encourage interest and development in VR and AR applications.”. Using the Unity Game engine, ForgeFX developed a Samsung-based app that works with the Google Cardboard viewer to allow products to be visualized and experienced in virtual reality.

Educational Simulations

Interactive educational simulations immerse students in the learning process, transforming them from passive audience members to active participants who control and experiment with content delivered in a compelling, interactive form. Done correctly, educational simulations use game design principles such as points, awards and badges to engage and maintain the interest of a younger age group.

Interactive Science Labs

Developing Your Project

As demonstrated by this collection, our custom-built simulations can be developed for almost any training or learning application. We encourage you to contact ForgeFX to discuss how we can create the perfect simulation-based training solution for your organization. We’ll talk with you about your specific requirements, and based on these we’ll work with you to arrive at a detailed proposal to develop and deliver your project. If you need a ballpark price, we can often provide that during initial phone conversations. If you require a more precise estimate and have a detailed project specification in hand, we can typically turn around a firm bid rapidly.
