The Caterpillar Visitors Center is a fascinating look at the company, the iron and the people making sustainable progress possible around the world. From the humble beginnings of the first tractor to the company's present-day leadership in building infrastructure and powering the planet. Watch a video in the bed of a massive two-story Cat® 797 truck and take a virtual ride into a customer's mine site down a haul road. Unleash your inner engineer and design your very own Cat machine. Hop onto a simulator and see first-hand what it's like to operate equipment the way real-life operators do.
One of the favorite parts of the tour was the Immersive Visualization center where you can sit in the seat of a machine of the future or walk an assembly line of a factory not yet built. It's the same 3D technology that Caterpillar uses to design and build machines, engines and factories today, and it's a fascinating look into product development.
