ForgeFX Develops Mining Training Simulator for P&H Mining

P&H Mining Equipment, an operating subsidiary of Joy Global Inc., hired ForgeFX to develop a custom virtual training simulator for their electric rope shovels. P&H Mining designs and manufactures mining equipment for the worldwide mining industry. This training simulator improves operator efficiency, reduces training and associated equipment damage costs, and increases revenue by maximizing operator efficiency. ForgeFX's custom 3D training simulators deliver hands-on learning experiences and simulated practice sessions, teaching the skills required to operate heavy equipment quickly and safely, increasing job site productivity.

Operator Training Simulator
The shovel training simulator helps operators learn to safely move more material in less time, maximizing a mining operation's bottom-line. The simulator allows operators to master the controls of the equipment, as well as the spatial relations challenges posed by the mining environment, before they ever step foot in a mine site. The training simulator can quickly and safely produce operators that will have fewer accidents, preform their jobs faster, and work more confidently. With this highly efficient workforce in place, mining operations are able to move more materials in less time, reducing their cost of production, and leading directly to an increase in profit.
