Customer: Mantsinen Group Ltd.
Mantsinen, a family-owned company, provides world class material handlers and logistics services to its customers. In 2015 Mantsinen won “Crane of the Year” Award at the IBJ Awards in Antwerp, Belgium for its 200 M HybriLift® hydraulic mobile harbour crane.
How to develop customized material handling solutions quickly and cost effectively? How to train operators to perform their job efficiently and safely by using Mantsinen solutions in the best possible way?
Mantsinen decided to use custom build simulators from Mevea to cover their processes end-to-end, i.e. the same simulation model is used for product development, sales/marketing and training purposes. Realistic machine behaviour is the key for Mantsinen, hence the simulator includes real machine control hardware and software integrated with virtual machine, environment and work process simulation.
With simulator Mantsinen has been able to virtually develop and test new machine features and capabilities. This has shortened the R&D and engineering processes and made those more cost efficient. In addition they have used simulator for operator and service training with good results. This has resulted in surge in demand for training services and a positive word-of-mouth within the sales and customer networks.
With simulator we are able to serve our customers better, whether the question is faster development of customized solutions or operator & service personnel training.
