Last month on 5 April, Motion Metrics was awarded UK patent GB2536271 “Method and apparatus for performing a fragmentation assessment of a material” for PortaMetrics™.

This is Motion Metric’s first UK patent and their second patent for PortaMetrics™, less than a year after we received the US patent for the device.

Co-invented by Shahram Tafazoli, Mohammed Sameti, Nima Ziraknejad, Aylin Azmin, Ian Bell, and Daniel Ko, this patent will prove essential to securing Motion Metrics’ position as a worldwide mining technology leader.

PortaMetrics is a handheld tablet that uses 3D imaging to analyse rock fragmentation in any environment without the need for any reference scaling objects. Performing advanced functions at the click of a button, PortaMetrics is an essential tool for any mine looking to optimize their blasting and drilling processes.
