Drill Jumbo Personal Simulator
Simlog’s Drill Jumbo Personal Simulator puts trainees at the controls of a modern twin boom Drill Jumbo in an underground mining tunnel (drift).
Training efficiency is delivered through a modular Instructional Design that teaches real skills for productive and safe equipment operations in the field.
You can either use your own PC or choose the convenience of our PC bundle with the Simlog software already installed, licensed, and ready to go in English or Spanish. You can even change the viewpoint during the simulation at the touch of a button!
Replica Controls for Drill Jumbo Personal Simulator
Lever-Style Replica Controls
Lever-style Replica Controls reproduce the essential elements of Atlas Copco’s “Direct Control System” (DCS) operator controls, as follows:
- Four industrial levers
- One multi-purpose joystick with 8 push-buttons (compatible with many other Simlog products).
Joystick-Style Replica Controls
Joystick Style Replica Controls for Drill Jumbo Personal Simulator feature industrial strength components. There are a total of 8 push-buttons for the thumb, plus a trigger. The USB electronics are built right into the base, so the joystick.
These controls are multi-purpose, so they can be used with Simlog’s Hydraulic Excavator, Bulldozer, Wheel Loader, Mobile Crane, Tower Crane, Forklift, Harvester, Forwarder, and Drill Jumbo Personal Simulators. If you are a Simlog customer, you may be able to re-use the Replica Controls that you already have.
Custom Travel Cases for Replica Controls
For all setups, Simlog’s Custom Travel Case makes transportation easy.
- Made-to-measure, with dedicated slots for levers, joysticks, pedals, steering wheel, and tabletop mounting brackets
- Space for a laptop PC, cables, and documentation
- Pull-out handle, with multiple positions
- Wheels (casters)
- Cases are “stackable,” for easy transport
- Overall dimensions: 30″ (76cm) x 24″ (61cm) x 19″ (50cm)
- Approximate weight: 50 lbs. (23 kg) when empty, up to 100 lbs. (46 kg) when full (depending upon the Replica Controls)
Joystick-Style OEM Controls for Simlog’s Drill Jumbo Personal Simulator
For Simlog’s Drill Jumbo simulation software, we are pleased to offer Joystick-style OEM Controls featuring control handles from the operator controls of Atlas Copco’s “Rig Control System” (RCS).
Note that the simulator controls may be used with Simlog’s table-top mounting brackets.
Drill Jumbo Personal Simulator
There are six “Simulation Modules” of increasing difficulty. Early Simulation Modules present a single hole to be drilled at a designated position and orientation. Later Simulation Modules require drilling complete rounds and cross-cutting in wider drifts.
- Drill steel alignment with an angled target
- Drill steel alignment with laser lines
- Dual-boom, multiple hole drilling
- Dual-boom, multiple hole drilling 2
- Round drilling
- Single boom cross cutting
Key Performance Indicators
Ten (10) Key Performance Indicators measure how quickly and how carefully the simulated work is performed. Feedback is diagnostic, instead of just a consolidated pass/fail score. They include execution time, grade deviation, drift collisions and vertical deviation at the collar.
Simulation results are automatically saved, along with the occurrence of any “Procedure Error” or “Fatal Error,” so trainees can progress at their own pace without trainer supervision. To simplify the record keeping, Simlog offers a database product called Simulation Manager, and the same database can be used with all of our Personal Simulators.
Low Total Cost of Ownership
Real affordability, that’s how Simlog sets the standard in cost-effective simulation.
First, the software license is a one-time purchase, with no restrictions on the number of people that you can train.
Second, Simlog software is designed to be used with off-the-shelf (Windows) PCs, displays, speakers, etc. And our USB-ready simulator controls incorporate no special interface or proprietary electronics, so they can be easily, and individually, replaced as needed over time.
Quick Return on Investment
The fact is, training with our Personal Simulator costs very little compared to training with a real drill jumbo.
First, consider what you pay to own and operate that equipment, plus the time spent by your instructor to supervise the training. Then there are the costs associated with even small accidents due to inexperience, often thousands of dollars in replacement parts and downtime. There are merchandise costs too, because loads will inevitably be damaged or “lost”. Finally, there’s always the risk of injury (or worse).
Now compare all that to training with our Drill Jumbo personal simulator, and it’s easy to see that your return on investment will be quick!
Module 2: Drill Steel Alignment with Laser Lines
The objective of Module 2 is to learn to drill single stope holes using a single boom and grade and back line orientation cues.
Module 3: Dual-boom, Multiple Hole Drilling
The objective of Module 3 is to learn to drill a series of stope holes using two booms and grade and back line orientation cues.
Module 5: Round Drilling
The objective of Module 5 is to learn to drill a a complete round (including stope, contour, and lifter holes) using two booms and grade and back line orientation cues.
