The PRO4 will be unveiled for the first time publically at MINExpo, along with the announcement of its new innovations. The PRO4 has been specifically designed for surface mining and delivers cutting edge technologies with realism at a level not previously seen by the mining industry.

The PRO4 builds on the huge success of its predecessors the PRO3-B and before that the AES Series 2B which became the global standard in the mining industry over the past 16 years, training over 150,000 mining equipment operators across 40 countries.

The IM360 with RealView has been specifically designed for underground mining both hard and soft rock, with the flexibility to also train in surface mining environments. This latest variant adds RealView technology as standard along with the capability to support remote equipment operation training.

The original IM360 gained the highest market share in underground mining by a significant margin following its launch in 2014.

The LX3’s smaller footprint offers the same value for early stage training as the PRO4 and is ideal for machine and site familiarization, emergency response training and extending the utilisation of existing simulator modules, all at an affordable price.

The LX3 is compatible with the wide range of machine modules available from Immersive Technologies and shares the underlying technology of the industry leading PRO4 and IM360 Simulators.

This new range of advanced equipment simulators is supported by the industry’s most comprehensive technical support and broadest range of complementary products and services designed to deliver quantifiable return on investment. Immersive Technologies offers global on and off site technical support, scheduled hardware and software upgrades, professional services such as curriculum design and integration, and managed services such as on site trainers and training supervisors for a completely managed solution to optimize your workforce.

You can find Immersive Technologies at booth #8193, Central Hall or visit Visitors to the stand will receive unprecedented access to customer case studies showcasing proven results in our Quantified Operational Improvement Catalog.
