- Applications for crushing, grinding, flotation and dewatering
- Reduced implementation time and standardised best practices based on control philosophy coding
- Friendly interface and intuitive browsing that enables more key people in your plant to access the expert system

METcam Artificial Vision Systems
METcam provides continuous monitoring to feed your advanced control systems, replacing the operator’s visual inspection. It includes:
- METfroth: forth characterisation in flotation cells
- METrock: ore fragmentation measurement in ore conveyors
- METball: counting of ball feeding for mills
We will perform a control survey of your process to identify the status of your instrumentation and control system, identifying the gaps that you need to cover before implementing an expert system. With our extensive experience in implementing advanced processes, we can help you find the smart way to bring your plant to the optimal level of automation.
Because we believe a project’s success is based on client ownership over the system, we offer comprehensive expert remote and on field support services. Our support services will ensure that your expert system is running optimally, so you can achieve maximum returns from your MET solution.
