Freeport McMoRan (FMI) in Indonesia is using training simulators from Immersive Technologies to prepare operators for Caterpillar’s semi-autonomous LHD operations with Cat® Command for Underground. Command for Underground automates the tramming and dumping component of an underground loader’s load-haul-dump cycle.
In an effort to train and develop a local workforce for a greenfield operation Lydian Armenia invested in simulators with Professional Services from Immersive Technologies. The new mine has a 4km downhill loaded haul with up to 10 percent grade, creating additional need for operators to be proficient in how to operate the equipment safely but also how to respond to any emergency, such as the loss of a braking system or a fire.
The annual award for mining companies using simulation for equipment operator optimization and business improvement progressed this year, recognizing global winners for surface and underground mining environments based on their improvements achieved during 2017.
A new solution, Operator Performance Analytics, from Immersive Technologies has significantly reduced labor intensive analysis by providing a system which provides insights into operational risk, safety, and productivity loss as well as machine abuse.
Simtars and Immersive Technologies are pleased to announce the signing of an MOU between the two companies that will allow them to jointly develop training and workforce development solutions for the Queensland resource sector and international markets.
Female operators are the focus of a new initiative at PT Freeport Indonesia (part of FMI in Grasberg) where IM360 simulators from Immersive Technologies are used to train operators to remotely operate Caterpillar’s Semi-Autonomous Underground Load Haul Dumps (LHDs) using Cat® Command for Underground.
