ShovelMetrics™

ShovelMetrics™
A complete bucket monitoring solution for all shovels and excavators.

ShovelMetrics™ uses deep learning to improve safety, energy efficiency, and productivity.

“Previously, mine personnel had to enter the primary crusher to remove a missing tooth. With ShovelMetrics, we remove our people from the line of fire and maintain operational continuity.”

Mine Manager, Gabriela Mistral

The Motion Metrics Service Desk is a customer support portal that provides customers with quick access to the latest product manuals, guides, videos, training, and webinars. Customers can also use the platform to submit product support requests to our dedicated support team.

Keeps mine personnel safe and pays for itself in months.

You should never have to compromise on safety or efficiency.

In an increasingly competitive landscape, ShovelMetrics gives mines the advantage they need by minimizing unplanned downtime and productivity losses. ShovelMetrics uses artificial intelligence and computer vision to provide missing tooth detection, tooth wear monitoring, payload monitoring, particle size analysis, and proximity detection. Our flagship missing tooth detection solution for shovels and excavators mitigates the risk of crusher obstructions to safeguard your employees and prevent hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost production.

Thermal Edition

For northern regions and sticky material

To detect missing teeth, the ShovelMetrics camera needs a clear view of the shovel or excavator bucket. This can be difficult at mines in northern regions which receive very little sunlight during the winter, or at sites where sticky material can obscure the teeth. To overcome these challenges, we developed a thermal version of ShovelMetrics that provides accurate missing tooth detection under the harshest environmental conditions – even in total darkness.

MetricsManager™ Pro

Turn your data into decisions.

Like all Motion Metrics products, ShovelMetrics interfaces with our centralized data analysis platform, MetricsManager Pro. Users with authorized credentials can receive automated SMS and email missing tooth notifications, view equipment activity logs, and monitor tooth wear to schedule maintenance. Motion Metrics recognizes the importance of interoperability and will work with other vendors to ensure our solutions interface with your existing software.
