Hitachi Construction Machinery and ThoroughTec collaborating to provide world class mining simulators

ThoroughTec Simulation says it is collaborating with Hitachi Construction Machinery “to ensure that Hitachi mining equipment owners have access to the world’s most advanced and effective operator training technology.” Through this collaboration, ThoroughTec Simulation utilises confidential Hitachi Construction Machinery technical information as well as specialist operational and engineering expertise, to shape and improve the design, development and testing of new Hitachi Construction Machinery equipment simulators.

It says this guarantees that customers receive the most realistic and effective simulators possible, with which to drive safety, productivity and cost-reducing improvements across their mining fleet. “We are honoured to support Hitachi Construction Machinery’s commitment to operator safety and performance via our unique range of training solutions,” says David Cooke, VP Corporate Development at ThoroughTec Simulation.

ThoroughTec Simulation has been designing advanced, hi-fidelity training simulators for more than two decades, during which time the company has grown into one of the world’s leading training technology organisations. The company has deployed over 500 simulators to mining customers around the globe and says it is the only ISO9001 simulator supplier in the mining industry. It says its latest, fifth generation, range of CYBERMINE simulators “represent the pinnacle of realism and training efficiency for both surface and underground operations and are known for their excellent through-life value and reliability.”
