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. The fact is, training with our Personal Simulator is a fraction of the cost of training with a real drill jumbo, especially considering that even small accidents due to operator inexperience can mean thousands of dollars in replacement parts and downtime. And the purchase of the simulation software license is a one time fee, to keep the total cost of ownership as low as possible, with no restrictions on the number of people that you can train.
Quick Return on Investment
The software license, a one time fee, will pay for itself when you train just a handful of new operators. How? Consider the rising costs of putting a real drill jumbo to work with a qualified instructor, the damage and downtime that inexperience can cause, and finally the risk of possible injury. That’s why it just makes sense to prepare new operators with Simlog help.
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.
