CEMEX Virtual Labs for Cement Production Training

From Pre-heater operations and Rotatory Kiln to Mixture and Shipping

The project, developed by PNX Labs, aims to reduce the time it takes to train production engineers so they can understand from top to bottom the critical production variables involved in cement production. The VR experience was divided into ten modules, each with 5-10 sub-modules. The training program includes the following modules: Mixture preparation, milling, preheater and calcination, rotatory kiln, burners, cooling, cement production, packaging, hydration, and concrete production.

Mechanicsl Engineering Virtual Labs for Munster Technological University Ireland

Mechanics of Materials - Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics

Irish universities are leading the world in implementing AAA virtual labs for their programs. On October 2022, Munster Technological University in Ireland began this journey by investing in the development of PNX Virtual labs for mechanical engineering. The first project aims to teach students to operate the Instron 3400 Universal Test Machine to perform tension tests. The goal is to have a complete mechanical engineering VR lab by 2023 with the most common instruments.

Dublin City University

Advanced Manufacturing VR Lab for DCU Ireland

Advanced Manufacturing Industrial Metal 3D Printing

On September 2022, Dublin city university school of engineering will begin implementing a series of virtual labs for mechanical engineering and advanced manufacturing. The project was developed to teach students how to operate the Aconity 3D printer, a laser beam metal powder 3d printer manufactured in Germany. These printers can cost over 1 million euros, and their operation can be dangerous. Metal powders are highly toxic and can ignite instantly in the presence of oxygen.

Mohawk College

Fluid Mechanics Virtual Labs for Mohawk College, Canada

Bernoulli’s Equation, Flow Measurement, Open Channel Flow and more.

On January 2022, Mohawk College will start implementing a series of Virtual Labs to teach fluid mechanics in the school of engineering. When it comes to teaching science and engineering, fluid mechanics is one of the most difficult subjects to teach without a proper laboratory. Fluid mechanics experimentation allows students to better comprehend the math and science behind the interaction of fluids. On the other hand, fluid mechanics labs often require not just expensive equipment but instructors to be present to avoid injuries and damage the equipment. Virtual Labs, will help students to complete the same experiments at a hazard-free environment with many additional benefits. Students can repeat the same experiments as many times they request. If they have their own VR headset they can request a license for their own.

Dublin City University

Chemical Engineering Virtual Labs for Dublin City University

Advanced Chemistry - Ion Chromatography

Very few universities around the world are innovative enough to make great ideas come true. Starting in January 2022, Dublin city University will implement a series of virtual labs to train students in the use of specialized equipment for chemical engineering. Developed by PNx Labs, the first set of virtual labs will allow students to learn the experimentation procedures to analyze substances using ion chromatography instruments. These instruments are not just expensive but require very careful handling and operation. Students are usually supervised by experienced graduate students or lab technicians. By implementing VR Simulations, DCU students will be able to learn in a risk-free environment how to use these chemistry instruments and speed the training process so they can be ready go into the physical lab much faster.

Engineering Virtual Labs for Florida International University

Instrumentation and Thermalfluid

Starting in September the Florida International University will make use for the first time of a series of Virtual Labs for Engineering. Students will be able to do multiple experiments in both windows and HTML platforms, perform calculations, record data and modify key variables with real instrument models. All the data used to develop the simulations was gathered from real experimentation performed by the faculty so students and professors can be sure the same data generated by the virtual labs will math that of the real world.

Mechanical Virtual Labs

Mechanics Virtual Labs Tecnológico de Monterrey

This platform will allow them to interact in a virtual way with the elements they designed, assemble them and observe their operation to obtain mathematical results that allow them to evaluate the functionality of the design. For Christoper Falcón, the idea of ​​this project is that all the subjects that involve mechanical design have this learning methodology and later, be able to expand them to subjects of other specialties.
