The mining division of integrated mining solutions provider Hexagon introduced its HxGN MineMeasure Detect – a three-dimensional camera hardware, software and data solution – earlier this year.

The addition strengthens Hexagon’s leadership in production material monitoring and measurement.

MineMeasure Detect enables real-time optimisation for plant production with automated digital-image analysis offering continuous, accurate and rapid measurement of oversize, volume, rock fragmentation and colour analysis.

Mines demand consistent, predictable, high-volume production with plants intended to operate 24/7. However, changing geologic mineral and structural conditions within mining benches can sometimes mean oversize particles block crushers, chutes and conveyors.

Blockages can halt operations, in severe cases resulting in lost operational revenues worth millions of dollars.

MineMeasure Detect minimises production interruptions and costly downtime with oversize detection of large particles.

It enhances production efficiencies and reconciliation by calculating volume, density and tonnage.

Advanced detection reveals an aggregate of previously unmeasured ancillary variables, such as material density and hardness, which is essential to throughput maximisation and ore liberation.

The solution’s fragmentation analysis capabilities enable continuous monitoring and improvement of production throughput while managing costs.

Industry-leading research and proven algorithms for direct measurements of particle identification and fines identification set MineMeasure Detect apart in terms of measurement accuracy in mineral processing.

The solution leverages the largest set of data availability applied across the international mining industry, with the colour-analysis data for ore detection empowering operators by providing additional opportunities to adjust materials handling, blending, clay detection and ore treatment processes.

“MineMeasure Detect is built on more than 25 years’ experience partnering with international mining operations, allowing systems to be fully integrated with customer technologies,” says Hexagon Mining MineMeasure VP James Dampney.

He adds that, combined with fragmentation tools, the solution’s immediate detection capabilities offer a critical early warning for operators to avoid catastrophic production stoppages.

“With its image-analysis techniques ensuring that fragmentation is managed and optimised, MineMeasure Detect fits seamlessly in the MineMeasure portfolio, which delivers scrutiny and transparency in every step of the ore extraction journey,” he concludes.
