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.
