Shovel Operator Training Simulator Demo Video

ProMiner Shovel Operator Training Simulator Demo Video

The ProMiner Shovel Operator Training Simulator, a 3D simulator developed by ForgeFX for P&H Mining, increases your company’s bottom line by producing an extremely well trained workforce. Operators become experts in moving more material in less time, significantly increasing the mine’s productivity. The training simulator allows both novice and veteran operators to train in a safe virtual environment, where mistakes become valuable lessons instead of costly mishaps. Training simulators lead to less real-world machine downtime for operator training, and higher overall efficiency levels, by providing a realistic virtual training environment where techniques can be mastered quickly and safely.

ForgeFX, a proud partner of P&H Mining Equipment, a division of Joy Global Inc., specializes in the development of custom 3D training simulators.
