Enaex Uses PortaMetrics™ and MetricsManager™ Pro

Enaex is one of the leading explosives and blasting companies in South America and one of the first Motion Metrics clients to use MetricsManager™ Pro, our new online data management platform. Christian Aliaga, a technical representative for Enaex at the Pelambres copper mine in Chile, spoke with us about his experiences using the new platform in conjunction with the PortaMetrics™ handheld fragmentation analysis tablet.

How would you describe your experience working with MetricsManager™ Pro?

MetricsManager™ Pro has helped us make the fullest use of the information gathered in the field by PortaMetrics™. The segmentation editing tools and user-friendly interface make my job much easier as the platform allows me to generate high quality reports in very little time.

How have you been using the MetricsManager™ Pro platform and which device are you using to gather the data?

We have been using the MetricsManager™ Pro platform to analyze images and generate fragmentation reports using data collected in different areas of the pit at Los Pelambres Mine. Using the PortaMetrics™ device, we perform these analyses every day on the stock piles, crusher piles, and at the plant, as well as on the gravel that produces stoppage in the production wells.

Would you recommend MetricsManager™ Pro to your colleagues?

I would absolutely recommend using this platform as it allows us to handle information quickly and effectively. Furthermore, it significantly improves analysis implementation and the delivery of results through brief summaries and comprehensive reports.
