ThoroughTec Simulation, the world’s leading supplier of advanced, mine workforce training technologies, will be ‘breaking new ground’ at MINExpo in Las Vegas, this September. The company plans to reveal a number of exciting new products that emphasise its commitment to providing mines with the most powerful workforce performance development technologies available on the market.

“The star of the show will undoubtedly be our brand new, CYBERMINE Workforce Excellence (WX) platform, or ‘WEX’ as we like to call it,” said Richard Bellengere, head of operations at ThoroughTec. “This first-of-class system will revolutionise the way mines approach Workforce performance management, finally providing decision makers and managers with an end-to-end tool for the continuous, scientific measurement and improvement of heavy equipment operator performance.”

Also on display will be the latest version of ThoroughTec’s hugely popular CYBERMINE Full Mission Simulator (FMS) System. “These advanced, fourth generation operator training simulators remain the cornerstone of our integrated training system, allowing us to directly influence workforce performance by shaping operator behaviour in a highly-realistic yet safe, cost-effective and controlled environment,” noted Bellengere.

ThoroughTec has also confirmed rumours that there will be a second CYBERMINE FMS exhibit at the show, this one on the OJSC ‘BELAZ’ stand, where the world’s first and only BELAZ 75135 haul truck driver training simulator will be available for demonstration. BELAZ is a major manufacturer of mining equipment, including the world’s largest capacity mine truck: the 7571. “This simulator is the latest in a string of new developments and features some very sexy new features, including the CYBERMINE Motion Tracking System and Mission Planner,” said Bellengere.

Back on ThoroughTec’s stand, and the enhanced CYBERMINE Operator Familiarisation Trainer (OFT) will be available for demonstration, along with some of their latest E-Learning courses. Both of these product lines are supplementary to the core FMS system and ensure that students properly acquire the foundational knowledge and psycho-motor skills necessary to excel in their chosen roles. “E-learning systems have evolved considerably over the years and our in-house, Training Systems’ team prides themselves in staying ahead of the market as new technologies and methods emerge,” said Bellengere.

“We believe in the power of technology and the potential of people,” said CEO, Justin Collins. “It’s this philosophy that drives us to develop fantastic new products like CYBERMINE WX, tools that harness that power and unlock that potential.”

Potential customers will be able to experience these advanced products hands-on at the Las Vegas Convention Centre, Las Vegas between 26-28 September in the North Hall, Stand 808.
