Peoria, Ill.— Simformotion™ LLC – a leader in heavy equipment simulator training solutions – is proud to announce the release of the new Cat® Simulators Underground Load-Haul-Dump System.

Train operators to improve safety awareness and increase production with Cat® Simulators Underground Load-Haul-Dump System.

Operating large equipment in dark confined spaces is challenging. Trained operators make a difference in hitting production targets and avoiding accidents. The LHD Simulator System combines authentic controls with machine applications that teach operators the same techniques found in underground mine sites worldwide. The system offers a unique three-monitor configuration, allowing the operator to view from the front, rear and right. The addition of a motion system creates a total training experience with vibration and movement as the simulated machine interacts with the terrain.

“Mining is going strong again and companies need trained operators. Cat Simulators new Underground LHD System addresses the need with safe, efficient training that is always consistent,” says Vice President Renee Gorrell. “We develop our simulators with Caterpillar subject matter experts so every technique is the same as the applications performed in underground mines around the world.”

The Underground LHD Simulator System includes exercises that teach the operator how to perform a Walkaround for safety and maintenance, Controls Familiarization, System Tests, Bucket Placement, Driving, Truck Loading, and Dumping into a Crusher. Plus, Open Training in each exercise offers opportunities for additional practice and skill refinement.

Exclusive to Cat Simulators is SimU Campus™ Training Records Management, software that measures, records and reports the results of all simulation sessions. Hundreds of benchmarks based on Caterpillar expert data are included, with user performance measured against the benchmarks and outcomes recorded to a database.

In addition to the new Underground LHD Simulator System, Cat Simulators are available in Mining Dozer, Mining Truck, Off-Highway Truck, Electric Rope Shovel, Small and Large Wheel Loaders, Hydraulic Excavator, Advanced Construction Excavator, Articulated Truck, M-Series Motor Grader, Construction Dozer, FM Log Loader and Track Feller Buncher.
