8 May, 2017

Immersive Technologies says investment in its Underground solutions by mining companies and contractors has rapidly grown since the release of the IM360 simulator. African Underground Mining Services (AUMS), a Barminco Limited and Ausdrill 50/50 Joint Venture, continues to provide significant market growth in the African region for Immersive Technologies, with recent orders for two IM360 simulator platforms with Conversion Kits deployed for Sandvik Long Hole and Jumbo Drills, LHD’s and Trucks and a CAT Truck and LHD.

“Immersive Technologies has outsold all other simulator vendors in the underground simulation market for the past three years and we are extremely excited to see that success spread into Africa. Continuously exceeding productivity targets without compromising safety has put AUMS at the forefront of African underground mining and we are confident our simulator based training solutions will ensure AUMS continues to grow that track record”

Greg Karadjian, Vice President of Underground Mining Solutions at Immersive Technologies.

AUMS provides a structured training program for all its employees, their approach to training and technology is a key differentiator in the market. AUMS will continue to review and broaden its programs through shared learnings from Barminco’s utilization analytics, which are used to understand how machine operators perform.
