VDZ training with the SIMULEX® cement plant simulator
The SIMULEX® cement plant simulator for training plant supervisors, foremen, and control room operators was developed by the VDZ Research Institute of the Cement Industry and KHD Humboldt Wedag. For over ten years, VDZ used the simulator within the framework of training courses and constantly supported the further development of the system with practical input from the industry. As a result, the simulator provides a very realistic reconstruction of a production plant with a state-of-the-art Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system. With more than 200 applications worldwide, SIMULEX® is well established among leading cement manufacturers.
The VDZ Research Institute offers a wide range of simulator trainings for everything from the education of new employees to specialised expert training. These can be enhanced by theoretical lectures and plant inspections.
The wide range of experts on all topics of cement production at the Institute enables tailor-made on-site training courses featuring every subject from basic chemistry to process technology and special issues of optimisation.
