Liebherr Expands Alliance with Immersive Technologies

21 February, 2008 - Perth Australia

Liebherr has chosen to expand its exclusive licensing and technical information alliance with Immersive Technologies to include the company’s range of hydraulic mining excavators and shovels.

This follows the alliance signed in 2005 for the Immersive T 282 B simulator representing one of the world’s largest haul trucks.

Liebherr will now work exclusively with Immersive Technologies to develop training simulators for the Liebherr range of excavator and shovels.

The first Liebherr mining excavator represented in a simulator is Liebherrs current flag ship the R 996. Other models will follow imminently given the market’s strong demand for simulation products for enhanced operator training for mining machines.

“Liebherr can see the advantages of simulator based training for operators from both safety and machine availability perspectives. Liebherr exclusively recommends Immersive Technologies as the supplier of simulation training products for their range of excavators and shovels”, Burkhard Richthammer, LIEBHERR Product and Marketing Manager for hydraulic mining excavators at Liebherr’s main mining excavator factory in Colmar, France.

“We are very pleased to expand our alliance with Liebherr given the success of the T282B Truck simulator development”, Peter Salfinger CEO, Immersive Technologies.

Immersive Technologies holds exclusive licensing and technical information agreements with the leading Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM), including; Liebherr Mining Equipment Co., Liebherr France SAS, Caterpillar Inc, Komatsu Ltd, Hitachi Construction Equipment Ltd and Bucyrus Inc. These companies collectively supply the majority of the world’s mining haul trucks, excavators, shovels, dozers and ancillary equipment.

“We commit significant engineering resources each year to ensure the OEM alliance training simulators that we represent remain authentic and continually deliver value. This is key to helping our clients to minimise risk to their Operators and maximise productivity”, Peter Salfinger CEO, Immersive Technologies.
