Australian company RungePincockMinarco (RPM) has launched a new mining equipment enterprise simulation software product 'Simulate' for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Over 30 years ago, the company launched its first mining simulation product Talpac, which simulates a truck and loader fleet travelling over a haul route.

Following the release of Talpac, the company expanded its offering with the release of Dragsim, Underground Coal Talpac, Haulnet, and Haulsim products for the mining industry.

According to the company, its new user-friendly and intuitive software Simulate incorporates features from Talpac, Haulnet, and Haulsim into a single and enterprise-enabled application.

"Simulate has been designed to provide OEMs with a platform for providing accurate, sustainable, and productive equipment solutions for their clients."

RPM claims that Simulate serves as a fully integrated 3D simulation solution.

With the new software, OEMs will be able to use their customer's data to model their mining operations completely, and can also calculate the financial value the equipment and services will offer.

RPM CEO Richard Mathews said: "Simulate has been designed to provide OEMs with a platform for providing accurate, sustainable, and productive equipment solutions for their clients.

"Simulate will enable OEMs to provide their existing and prospective clients with a complete solution which provides a step change in operational performance. We believe a 'white labelled' Simulate will become the sales tools of choice for the world's major OEMs."

In May, the company released the latest version of its haulage simulation tool 'Haulsim 1.3' for mining users.

With improved equipment configuration and reporting capabilities, Haulsim 1.3 includes further developed truck load time calculations, and improved equipment interaction logic.
