Under the agreement, Caterpillar Mining will recommend ThoroughTec Simulation as its approved supplier of mining equipment simulators. In turn, Caterpillar will provide ThoroughTec Simulation exclusive access to confidential Cat machine technical data and engineering expertise — enabling ThoroughTec to continue strengthening its capabilities as a global supplier of advanced mining equipment simulators.
ThoroughTec Simulation has been designing advanced, hi-fidelity training simulators for almost 25 years, during which time the company has grown into one of the world's leading training technology organisations. It has deployed many hundreds of simulators around the globe and is the only ISO9001 simulator supplier in the mining industry.
ThoroughTec's latest, fifth-generation, range of CYBERMINE simulators are extremely realistic and cater to both surface and underground operations.
ThoroughTec simulators are known for value and fidelity. When combined with actual Cat machine data and operating characteristics, these simulators will significantly enhance the overall operator training experience.
