This training material was created specifically to accompany the Cat® Large Track Type Tractor (aka Large Mining Dozer) Simulator system and focuses on the safe, effective operation of the Large Dozer in a virtual mining environment while applying correct operational techniques. The material trains the operator how to perform several different Dozer applications including tramming, ripping, slot dozing, dozing over a highwall, building a safety berm and slope maintenance. The blended learning experience of real-world application training in the classroom as well as the hands-on training with OEM controls ensures a seamless transition from the simulator to the field.
Large Track Type Tractors move on continuous twin tracks instead of wheels and have a large, steel blade at the front of the Dozer for moving earth. The tracks give the machine excellent ground hold and mobility when moving over a mine site’s rough terrain. Dozers are designed to push heavy objects and remove any obstacles stuck in the ground. A claw-like tool attachment, called a ripper, can be added to the rear of the Dozer to loosen rock or other compact material.
Simformotion™ is the licensee for Cat® Simulators for Caterpillar Inc. During the development of Cat Simulators, the Simformotion team worked closely with subject-matter experts to develop each exercise using the same techniques as found on real-world jobsites. Our curriculum works in tandem with simulation training to create a full educational experience for the learner. Throughout the material you will see images taken directly from the Cat Simulators simulation software. The images are used to help illustrate lessons and techniques.
