Immersive Technologies to showcase training simulators at MINExpo

Supplier News

Immersive Technologies  will be exhibiting at the MINExpo International 2008 in Las Vegas to be held during September.

The MINExpo International 2008 is a exhibition for mining equipment, technology and services, with over 1,200 exhibitors and 36,000 attendees expected from around the world.

Immersive Technologies' technology can manage the way the mining industry manages the skills shortage, development and upskilling of their heavy equipment operators. Staff now learn in highly realistic simulators allowing the transition to the real machine to be completed faster and with more confidence.

Immersive Technologies' training simulators can replicate over 55 machine models. Each day at MINExpo International 2008 will see different simulators in operation including Komatsu WA1200-3 Wheel Loader, Caterpillar 785C, 789C, 793C, 793D, 797 Off Highway Trucks, Liebherr T282B Off-Highway Truck, Hitachi EX5500-5 Hydraulic Front Shovel and a Drag Line.

"MINExpo provides Immersive Technologies the opportunity to showcase its products and demonstrate how mines can benefit from increased safety and productivity while reducing unscheduled maintenance. The result is a lower cost per tonne", said Peter Salfinger, Chief Executive of Immersive Technologies.

"All products on display have benefited from Immersive Technologies' unique exclusive alliances with the Original Equipment Manufacturers", Peter Salfinger said.
