This 3D simulator increases your bottom line by producing an extremely well-trained workforce with operators who quickly become experts at the controls of blasthole drills. This allows them to preform their jobs faster, safer, and more efficiently.
Realistic virtual training simulators allow operators to learn the machines quickly and safely, as well as master the entire process from start to finish before they ever step foot into a real-world piece of machinery. Training simulators lead to less machine downtime, fewer accidents, and a more efficient and productive operation.
The simulator features beginner and experienced modes, so that operators at different levels can benefit by using the training simulator to increase their skills. In addition, a tutorial mode is included for users that are new to virtual training simulators. Tutorials provide step-by-step instructions to operators on how to preform basic drill functions, such as how to raise the mast, how to drill a hole, and how to assemble the drill pipe string.
Connected to a pair of real-world controllers, the simulator mirrors the real-world equipment, allowing the operator to learn everything from operating the breakout wrenches, to the pipe racks, to the bit-air system. The time-of-day feature allows operators to learn to use the drill in a variety of limited light conditions, while the local and remote propel modes allow operators to train to operate the drill from inside, or outside of the cab.
At all times during the simulator session real-time performance data is being collected and tracked, everything from session time, to drill bit depth, to rotary RPM. The simulator allows operators to monitor themselves in real-time, and it also generates a performance report at the end of the session that provides greater insight into an operator's performance by listing everything from setup time, to number of regrinds and over-currents. By leveraging this data, operators can optimize their productivity within the simulator where they have the freedom to experiment with different techniques.
The bottom line is that the Joy Global ProMiner Blasthole Drill Simulator, while emphasizing safety, is designed to maximize operator machine controls and operation familiarity, efficiency, and productivity.
