Hexagon’s Mining division has acquired coarse rock fragmentation size measurement systems and software provider Split Engineering for an undisclosed amount.

Hexagon noted that optimised fragmentation can save mine costs and also improve drill and blast processes.

Split Engineering’s image processing technology has been designed to offer quality information, with customers able to manage their processes from drill to mill and improve mine profits.

Hexagon Mining division president Josh Weiss said: “Split Engineering’s fragmentation analysis capabilities expand our life-of-mine vision from pit to plant.

“It closes the loop on drill and blast design by allowing sites to quantify the effectiveness of their blast, bridging the gap between planning and operations.”

“Split Engineering’s fragmentation analysis capabilities expand our life-of-mine vision from pit to plant.”

Split Engineering employs specialists in mining, metallurgical, geological, geophysical, optical and electrical engineering. The company has continuously improved its software. It also opened offices in Chile, Peru, South Africa and Australia to service its customers worldwide.

Split Engineering co-founder Tom BoBo said: “Mining is all about efficient size reduction to liberate the mineral. Split Engineering’s technology measures that process of size reduction from mine to mill, pit to plant.

“Split Engineering is a great fit to Hexagon’s digital mine with our automated digital image analysis systems: Split-ShovelCam, Split-TruckCam and Split-Crusher taking Hexagon from the mine into the processing plant, to help measure, manage and improve mining operations.”

Split Engineering co-founder Brian Norton added that the company will leverage the sales, support and development resources offered by Hexagon’s international presence for the benefit of the global mining industry.
