IM360‑B Training Simulator - Built Specifically for Underground Mining

IM360 Advanced Equipment Simulator - available in classroom and transportable configurations
IM360-B logo

The IM360‑B has been specifically designed for machine equipment operator training in surface, underground hard rock and underground soft rock mining environments.

It delivers cutting edge technologies which dramatically increase realism to a level not previously seen by the underground mining industry. It ensures our customers have the world's best simulation solution to drive optimization and business improvements.

Featuring Immersive Technologies' world first RealMove™ technology, operators can freely walk around the mine and equipment, allowing for realistic training for Red Zone avoidance, proximity sensor training, prestart and walk around.

When coupled with Immersive Technologies removable motion platform, the IM360‑B offers high frequency motion cues for seated machines, aligning operator movement with display upon the uninterrupted High Definition 360° display.

Original Equipment Manufacturers, MSHA guidelines, and industry best practice are tightly integrated within the Advanced Equipment Simulators.

This attention to detail, flexibility, and fidelity gives trainees more in depth machine knowledge and delivers rapid, correct and effective learning and assessment for your operation's needs.

IM360 Transportable Configuration

Classroom and Transportable configurations

All of our high fidelity Advanced Equipment Simulators are available in either classroom or transportable configurations. The classroom model has been designed to be installed in existing buildings and training areas. It allows trainers to oversee multiple simulators simultaneously and provides an open environment for group sharing and learning. The solid construction limits unwanted light and sound and allows for multiple simulators to be located close together.

The transportable model can be moved relatively easily between sites and is self-contained; ideal when training space is not available indoors. Built to withstand the extremes of global mining environments, the transportable configuration has been designed with an IP54 rating for extreme dust and water proofing. Its temperature and airflow controls and reduced operating noise ensure optimal trainee and trainer comfort during training sessions.

360° Visual Experience

Recognizing the unique operating conditions of a mining environment, the 360° display allows the trainee to see in all directions replicating the conditions they will experience during real operations.

Removable Motion Platform

Utilizing the very latest technology, the IM360 motion platform delivers the optimum level of feedback required to accurately simulate underground mining equipment operation. With a simple procedure, the motion platform can be easily removed, for RealMove enabled simulations.

RealMove™ Natural Movement

Featuring Immersive Technologies' world first RealMove technology, operators can freely walk around the mine and equipment, allowing realistic training for Red Zone avoidance, proximity sensor training, prestart walk around, and mine evacuations.

Mine Evacuation Training

Ensure your personnel are prepared to handle mine site emergencies. Our virtual mine evacuation allows for training under conditions not able to be replicated underground.

RealMove natural movement technology allows for freedom of movement around the virtual environment for training on Red Zone avoidance

Enhanced Trainer Station

The Enhanced Trainer Station is a dual-monitor interface that allows a trainer to better manage the simulator during a session. With the new advancements trainers can now, observe a 3D view, trigger events, review errors as they occur, generate reports, administer scenarios and learners all while running training sessions, vastly improving trainer efficiency. The two screen setup allows a trainer to administer the simulator on one screen while a view of the session is run on the second screen. New views of the simulation are part of the enhancement and include multiple fixed views and free-roaming camera settings which allow the trainer to view the learner's performance from any angle.

Wide Range of Mining Equipment Simulated

Immersive Technologies provides an extensive range of Conversion Kit® interchangeable equipment modules for the IM360 base simulator platform, that allows a range of different equipment to be simulated. Immersive Technologies' Conversion Kits benefit from exclusive technical licensing agreements the company has with the leading Original Equipment Manufacturers(OEMs). This allows Immersive Technologies to simulate the functionality and operating environment of the OEM's machines with unrivalled accuracy.

Complete Solution Compatibility

Immersive Technologies' Advanced Equipment Simulators are supported by the industry's most comprehensive range of compatible tools, technologies and professional services. This ensures a solution to meet or exceed your needs can be defined, delivered, implemented and generating operational results quickly and with very low risk.
