Immersive Technologies, the world’s leading provider of heavy equipment simulator training products to the mining and earthmoving industries, will be exhibiting at MINExpo International 2008 in Las Vegas September 22-24.

Immersive Technologies’ breakthrough technology has revolutionized the way the mining industry manages the skills shortage, development and upskilling of its 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 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”, Salfinger said.
