ThoroughTec to Showcase CYBERMINE Simulators at IMARC 2014
MINING INNOVATION NEWS – SEPTEMBER 2014
Training simulator provider ThoroughTec Simulation will be demonstrating its state-of-the-art fourth generation CYBERMINE simulator at the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Melbourne, Australia from 23-25 September.
IMARC is one of Australia’s premier international mining events and is held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
CYBERMINE simulators are designed to improve safety and productivity for mine vehicle operators, whether for surface or underground mining. They’re useful for training and evaluating novices in the proficient operation of heavy equipment, providing a new-recruit screening system and effective refresher training for experienced operators. The training simulator is also the ideal tool to train operators on how to react in emergency situations, which is not possible on the actual mining equipment.
The latest generation’s state-of-the-art design includes an accurate replica of the vehicle’s cab, a motion platform with three or six degrees of freedom and a 270° or 360° panoramic, high resolution projection display system with surround sound audio. Control of all aspects of training and evaluation is exercised in real time from a feature rich instructor station.
