The simulators represent ThoroughTec Simulation's latest Cybermine system. Larin Allison, regional vice-president of Asia Pacific at ThoroughTec, commented: "We were extremely pleased when JCHX chose ThoroughTec to provide them with a quality training solution to further improve their operators' safety and productivity levels."

JCHX operates around the world and is engaged mainly in mine development and construction and contract mining, as well as research and development of mining technologies.

Wang Xian Cheng, chairman and founder of JCHX, said: "We are committed to achieving our goal of zero injuries in our operations, and one of the ways to achieve this is with highly trained personnel."

The two simulators have been customised for JCHX to include Mandarin language localisation. The drill rig simulator features a drill pattern editor, and scaling, meshing and bolting functions.

The Cybermine training simulator features a simulated cab and realistic replica of the actual mining equipment, with fully functional simulated instruments and controls. The replicated cab is mounted on a motion platform capable of imparting up to three degrees of freedom.

Training and evaluation is exercised in real time from an advanced instructor station and displayed on two high definition widescreen displays.

According to Allison, demand for high-fidelity simulators from the mining industry has steadily risen over the last few years.
