Simformotion™ LLC announces release of mining simulator systems

Simformotion™ LLC, Peoria, Ill.—a leader in heavy equipment simulator training solutions—announces the release of two new Cat® Simulator Systems for mining.
The Large Track Type Tractor and Mining Truck are set in an open pit mining environment. Operators can learn the same machine applications found on actual mine sites, but in the safety of a virtual environment!

Authentic controls combined with simulated exercises deliver a realistic training experience for operators. The Large Track Type Tractor teaches: Control Familiarization, Machine Walkaround, Tramming, Ripping, Slot Dozing, Dozing Over a Highwall and Slope Maintenance. The Mining Truck teaches: Control Familiarization, Machine Walkaround, Mine Site Driving, Braking, Mine Site Hauling, Loading with a Rope Shovel, Unloading at a Crusher and a Highwall, and full Production Cycle. Both simulator systems also include two Open Training modes. Plus, exclusive reporting features mean all simulator sessions are measured, reported and recorded so instructors and users can track progress. Both PC-based simulator systems offer the most engaging and cost-effective experience in virtual training today!

President Ken Pflederer says, “Mining is a booming business all over the world. It’s a dangerous business and there is a serious need for training. Cat Simulators delivers a realistic training experience for dozer and truck operators to learn proper procedures without harm to other personnel or machines. Using simulators as part of an end-to-end training program can provide immediate cost savings to a mine’s bottom line by reducing fuel costs, machine wear-and-tear and training multiple operators on multiple machines at one time.”

Special features on the Cat Simulator Systems such as multiple languages (Spanish, French, Chinese and Portuguese); and companion tablet eBook training set Cat Simulators apart from any other heavy equipment simulation trainer available today!

In addition to the new mining simulator systems, Cat Simulators are available in models for a heavy construction Dozer, Hydraulic Excavator, Off-Highway Truck, M-Series Motor Grader, Small and Large Wheel Loaders and Wheel Tractor-Scraper. For more information, visit
