Shovel and loader monitoring solutions
Our flagship product is ShovelMetrics™, a complete monitoring solution for shovels and excavators that uses the latest in machine learning and computer vision to provide missing tooth detection, tooth wear monitoring, fragmentation analysis, payload monitoring and proximity detection.
LoaderMetrics™ also monitors bucket teeth using thermal imaging technology and machine learning algorithms in addition to providing proximity detection.
ShovelMetrics™ and LoaderMetrics™ are designed to maximize the amount of useful data collected by mining machinery while minimizing workplace hazards, equipment damage, and machine downtime.
Fragmentation analysis tools
PortaMetrics™ is a ruggedized handheld fragmentation analysis tool that uses stereo imaging and machine learning algorithms to deliver fast and accurate rock size distribution data without the need for any reference scaling object.
PortaMetrics™ enables mine personnel to safely capture, process, and manually alter images of any bench face, stockpile, or quarry.
BeltMetrics™ is a ruggedized fragmentation analysis solution designed to analyze fragmentation on mining conveyor belts without interrupting production. Like PortaMetrics™, BeltMetrics™ uses a rugged stereo camera and machine learning algorithms to ensure that every visible rock is scaled and measured accurately.
All our monitoring solutions are designed to integrate with MetricsManager™ Pro.
This Cloud-based web application provides a single centralized platform to access all Motion Metrics system data. Customizable dashboards allow mine personnel and support specialists to easily monitor the health of each Motion Metrics device.
With laptop, tablet, and smartphone compatibility, detailed equipment productivity reports can be easily generated.
MetricsManager™ Pro provides real-time equipment status updates, tooth wear prediction reports, shovel productivity reports, and bucket-based rock fragmentation analysis.
