Simulators are great for training, but they're also great for trade shows, where it is not always practical to bring pieces of heavy equipment onto the show floor. Simulators allow companies to demonstrate their products virtually, greatly reducing their costs by removing the need to transport pieces of heavy equipment to show locations. Virtual simulators are also great for trade shows because you can allow attendees to get behind the controls of a machine and operate it right there on the floor, something you would never dream of doing with a real-world piece of equipment.
Construction Equipment Training SimulatorsForgeFX simulators were far from the only construction equipment training simulators at CONEXPO this year. A number of heavy equipment manufactures had training simulators on display, including Volvo, John Deere, Liebherr and Hyundai.

Heavy equipment manufacturers have realized that training simulators can deliver a huge return on investment to their customers and have jumped into the market with both feet. By providing simulators, you allow operators to train and become familiar with machine controls day or night, regardless of weather conditions - while using zero fuel and putting no wear-and-tear on real-world machinery. Simulators allow you to keep expensive machinery in production where it is making you money rather than being used for training.
