ThoroughTec to Demonstrate Advanced Continuous Miner and Dragline Simulators at Electra 2014
Global advanced training simulator provider ThoroughTec Simulation will be demonstrating their new CYBERMINE continuous miner and dragline simulators at Electra Mining Africa 2014 between 15-19 September. Both of these simulators were designed and built at ThoroughTec’s state-of-the-art facility in Umhlanga Ridge, Durban.
The CYBERMINE continuous miner, based on a Joy Global CM12HM31-B, is one of the latest offerings from the firm and is part of their new soft rock simulator range, which also includes a shuttle car, LHD and bolter. Predominantly aimed at the coal market, these high-fidelity simulators are designed to improve safety and productivity levels. “Operating a CYBERMINE continuous miner is like operating the real vehicle underground, but without the high costs and inherent risks,” says Greg Lew, ThoroughTec’s Executive Vice President of Global Business Development.
