VTPL, having a business partnership with Immersive Technologies, believes in improving operator technique to reduce fuel consumption, engine over speed and brake abuse of the original mining equipment, through effective simulator training.
The training allows operators to practice for a range of emergency situations, many of which are too dangerous to test in an actual mine. Operators can also be assessed for the proper technique more quickly and accurately than the traditional approach.
Within the often hazardous mining industry, simulation Training has gained recognition as a significant method of increasing site safety and profitability through improved operator skill and knowledge.
Improving operator technique with simulators has delivered proven results including longer tire life, reduced spot time, reduced brake abuse, improvements in fuel use, reduction in engine over speeds and more.
Simulation training has been proven to reduce risk, cost, unscheduled maintenance, increase trainer effectiveness and efficiency while maximizing mine productivity.
