ThoroughTec will demonstrate a new generation of advanced military engineered mining simulators at AIMEX.
ThoroughTec Simulation will demonstrate its engineering prowess in advanced heavy equipment mining simulation on Stand 0623 at AIMEX (Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition) to be held at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park from August 20 to August 23, 2013.
ThoroughTec’s design engineering comes from 20+ years of building complex military armoured vehicles, being compliant with Military Standards (MIL-STD) and having an ISO 9001 certified quality management system. ThoroughTec’s ability to build high fidelity and authentic simulators to superior quality levels at a low total cost of ownership offers significant benefits to customers.
ThoroughTec is also capable of tackling more complex mining machines such as drills, bolters, locomotives, scalers, graders and continuous miners, and also provide mine site customisation.
Since its global launch just two years ago at AIMEX 2011, ThoroughTec has attracted seven of the top 10 global mining companies as its customers. ThoroughTec has also grown from its traditional base in South Africa, to having an established presence and offices in South America, North America, and Perth and Brisbane in Australia. Most recently ThoroughTec expanded its interests in Indonesia, South Asia and Central Asia.
ThoroughTec’s large range of mining simulators (covering all OEMs and machine class) is backed by its new factory completed late last year, which enables the company to support mine sites not only with their present fleet, but also to grow with them in the future.
Visitors to the ThoroughTec stand at the AIMEX event this year will be able to test drive some of their best-selling and new generation advanced machines. The simulator cabs on show at AIMEX will demonstrate CYBERMINE4’s ability to simulate complex surface and underground mining equipment accurately and to extremely high levels of fidelity.
According to Greg Lew, ThoroughTec’s EVP of Global Business Development, their product range is designed and engineered to make mines safer, more productive and more cost effective.
He adds that ThoroughTec’s mining simulators encompass all aspects of both surface and underground mining operations for hard and soft rock, and are capable of replicating a mine’s entire working fleet from load and haul through to highly complex production and ancillary equipment.
ThoroughTec simulators are used around the world by OEMs, mine sites and training/recruitment schools for screening employees, recognition of prior learning, induction training, emergency procedure familiarisation, refresher training and up-skilling of experienced operators. The systems are backed by military grade quality, reliability and low cost of ownership.
