CYBERMINE Dragline Simulators ensure the optimal performance of you dragline workforce.
Mining methods have advanced tremendously through the years, with the result being increased productivity and profits. Essential to this optimisation process is effective dragline operator training, targeted at promoting both mine operator safety and proficiency.
Crucial to effective dragline simulation is the accurate physical modelling of the complex interactions between cables, couplings and bucket structures, together with the bucket interaction with the terrain, to provide realistic behavioural response of the dragline to operator inputs. Simulated bucket swing behaviour under various loads and cable lengths has to be close to perfect. No other dragline simulator provides the levels of dynamic realism provided by the CYBERMINE Dragline Simulator.
The CYBERMINE Dragline Simulator range simulates heavy equipment from all major manufacturers such as Bucyrus, Caterpillar (CAT), Marion and P&H.
“When a fraction of a percent improvement in productivity adds millions to your bottom line, you’ll be glad there’s an experienced operator at the controls.”
Accurate Vehicle Replication
All simulated dragline behaviour dynamics are based on detailed mathematical models that use manufacturer specifications to provide accurate behavioural realism. As a result, full bucket control and placement, cuts, excavating of overburden and spoiling exercises are an accurate reflection of reality.
VIRTUAL MINE WORLDS
CYBERMINE dragline simulators are delivered with a highly realistic, operating, 3D simulated mine world, complete with overburden, spoils and artificially intelligent simulated mining equipment such as bulldozers, shovels, diggers and light vehicles to support the dragline operator training and evaluation process.
Customised 3D own mine worlds which simulate your actual mine site, including excavating methods and areas are available on request.
Training and Evaluation Tools
CYBERMINE Dragline Simulator exercises may be configured to address various training requirements, including operations with different overburden characteristics, varying weather conditions, night operations, sub-system failures and advanced emergency situations.
The entire mining simulation exercise is continually monitored and recorded, including instrumentation states, controls interaction, bucket orientations and swing speeds, together with adherence to safety procedures, correct equipment handling techniques and response to emergency situations and failures. These performance reports together with the instructor’s after-action review capability provide a complete dragline operator training and evaluation system.
CYBERMINE Dragline Simulators provide an excellent training and evaluation tool for operators of dragline equipment, improving safety and optimising mine productivity.
