Safety and Consistency of Results in Image Based Fragmentation Analysis


Fragmentation Analysis


Image-based methods of fragmentation analysis have historically required a reference scaling object, the placing of which endangers personnel and reduces the accuracy of fragmentation results. PortaMetrics™ overcomes these flaws by eliminating the need for a reference object.

In this article you will understand:

  • How a significant number of mining fatalities can be prevented by using PortaMetrics™ instead of traditional fragmentation analysis methods.

  • How PortaMetrics™ improves accuracy by using a 3D point cloud to generate size measurements, rather than the one or two reference points traditional approaches use.

  • Why traditional methods of image-based fragmentation analysis cannot account for inconsistencies between users, and how PortaMetrics™ overcomes this challenge.
