Komatsu Mining Corporation

ForgeFX Simulations is proud to be a training simulator development vendor for Komatsu Mining Corporation, a Japanese multinational corporation that primarily manufactures construction, mining, forestry and military equipment. ForgeFX has developed simulation-based training programs for Komatsu Mining’s underground equipment, as well as surface mining equipment training simulators for Komatsu’s subsidiary, Joy Global, a company that manufactures and services heavy equipment used in the extraction and haulage of minerals. Delivering training simulators for their underground longwall systems, loaders and haulers, as well as simulators for surface mining rope shovels, blasthole drills and front-end loaders, ForgeFX has become an expert at developing virtual training simulator systems for heavy earth moving equipment. 

ForgeFX develops Komatsu’s line of ProMiner™ Training Simulators, which provide new and veteran operators the conditions to learn and practice their skills operating multiple pieces of Komatsu mining equipment. These simulators remove the risk of costly mistakes and keeps real-world machinery in production not in training. As part of the suite of simulators that ForgeFX developed for Komatsu, this custom training simulator trains operators on all of the aspects of the 4100XPC Electric Rope Shovel.

 

Benefits and Features

The shovel training simulator helps operators learn to safely move more material in less time with the 4100XPC Electric Rope Shovel, maximizing a mining operation’s bottom line. The simulator allows operators to master the equipment controls and become familiar with the spatial challenges posed by the mining environment – before they ever step foot on a mine site.

The simulator allows the operators to perform most of the functions of the real-world machinery, including everything from learning to propel the shovel, to digging into simulated materials, to improving cycle times. Trainees learn correct operation techniques while using the simulator. They are prompted and guided by the software when mistakes are being made that need to be corrected.

Simulator Return on Investment

This simulator can quickly and safely train operators that will have fewer accidents, perform 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 the cost of production, and leading directly to an increase in profit.
