Training-technologies provider ThoroughTec Simulation will be demonstrating a number of ground-breaking new developments at Electra Mining Africa 2016.

ThoroughTec Simulation says new products further reinforce the company’s drive to provide mines with the most powerful training and workforce development technologies available on the market.

“The star of the show will undoubtedly be the unveiling and demonstration of our brand new CYBERMINE Workforce Excellence (WX) training management platform,” says Adam Smallman, Regional VP of Europe, Middle East and Africa at ThoroughTec.

“This ‘first-of-class’ system will serve as a foundation for the measurement and improvement of mine operator performance through full-spectrum, KPI-driven training,” says Smallman.

The company will also be demonstrating the latest version of its CYBERMINE high-fidelity Full Mission Simulator (FMS), in this case for the training of Komatsu 930E haul truck operators.

“These advanced, fourth generation simulators remain the cornerstone of our integrated training system, allowing for highly-realistic, ‘practical’ training in a safe, cost-effective and controlled environment,” notes Smallman.

ThoroughTec’s in-house E-Learning development team will also be showing off their latest CYBERMINE E-learning architecture for various vehicles.

E-learning systems have evolved considerably over the years and ThoroughTec prides itself in staying ahead of the market as new technologies and methods emerge.

Specifically designed to engage operators, these custom E-learning systems guide recruits through a particular vehicle’s basic controls and operation, as well as providing mine environment and site procedure orientation.

“They are incredibly interactive, ensuring that learners are totally engaged and advance at their own pace,” says Smallman.

Richard Bellengere, EVP of Operations says human development and community upliftment are key parts of the CYBERMINE training philosophy.

“Integrating the world’s best training technology into mining operations is what we do to achieve that – it’s what we do best,” Bellengere.

ThoroughTec started life as a military simulation company, quickly establishing itself as the de facto supplier of landward simulator systems for the South African Military.

This foundation of quality-driven military engineering, supported the development of the CYBERMINE range of mining equipment simulators and workforce optimisation solutions, all of which enjoy a reputation for unmatched performance, reliability and low cost of ownership.
