June 22, 2022 - With 16 years of delivering Liebherr advanced equipment simulators for mining customers, Immersive Technologies and Liebherr have chosen to renew their technical information agreement for a further five years (20 years in total). Immersive Technologies has a long history of providing quantifiable return on investment to Liebherr fleet owners.
The first Liebherr mining equipment simulator was developed by Immersive Technologies in 2006 for a large copper mine in Arizona and now dozens of mines around the globe benefit from improved production, safety, and cost-per-ton achieved through operator skills optimization. The solutions significantly evolved over the years to include a range of haul trucks, excavators, shovels and autonomous panel add-ons for loader operators to manage autonomous haulage trucks. These long-standing customer relationships have shaped the requirements for high-performance simulation. With the two companies focused on customer outcomes, the following results have been recently achieved by mines:
- 11% spot time reduction (fleet management data)
- 36% reduction in machine abuse events (fleet management data)
- 8% instantaneous dig rate improvement (fleet management data)
- 100% engine fire pass rate (SimData)
