HxGN Split for Fragmentation Analysis

Manage fragmentation from blast to mill using the most technologically advanced image-analysis techniques.


Optimized fragmentation can save a mine significant costs while improving drill and blast processes. HxGN Split’s image processing technology delivers high-quality information that enables you to manage your processes from drill to mill and improve mine profits.

The following solutions make up an integrated blast-to-mill suite that connects to your block model. It is used by mines worldwide and based on more than 25 years of research and development.

HxGN Split-ConveyorCam for primary crusher, secondary, tertiary, pebble crusher and screen decks provides an online measurement of the particle size distribution (PSD) information for any conveyor belt location.

HxGN Split-TruckCam measures in real time the PSD of post-blasted rock delivered to the primary crusher, effectively and efficiently managing the transition from pit to plant.

HxGN Split-ShovelCam monitors shovels, conveyor belts and truck tips into the primary crusher in real time to deliver the key metric of particle size, quantifying post-blast fragmentation.

HxGN Split-Desktop delivers manual, off-line coarse rock fragmentation size analysis of muck piles, leach pads and more.

HxGN Split-Net leverages experienced personnel to process your images for you and provides a size distribution report.

HxGN Split-FX is a point-cloud processing software that provides geotechnical analysis using modern 3D imaging technologies.
