Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology has launched a mobile drill rig simulator to help upskill operators where they are needed most – on site.

In an effort to provide even more avenues to train customers, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology has introduced an operator training simulator. The mobile and flexible solution enables safer training of operators and maintenance teams on Sandvik DD422i, Sandvik DD422iE and Sandvik DT922i drill rigs. The low-weight training tool is highly portable, enabling it to be used where it is most needed. The simulator has been designed specifically to improve both operator and drilling performance, delivering real benefits for underground drilling applications.

Delivering “real life” training to operators and maintenance teams in a simulated environment, the simulator offers authentic controls combined with the same software installed on the actual drill rigs.
