Mineprism stands at the forefront of mining technology, transforming operations with its innovative AI Rock Segmentation Analysis System. Initially developed as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) application for smartphones, this system revolutionized how mining data is captured and analyzed, making it accessible and user-friendly.

The initial phase of Mineprism's technology allowed users to use their smartphones to capture images of rock formations. This ease of use and accessibility made it a game-changer in the industry, providing a simple yet effective tool for on-site analysis. The service analyzed the images, giving valuable insights into rock sizes and compositions, which were crucial for optimizing mining operations.

Building on the success of their online service, Mineprism took a significant leap forward by developing a more advanced product for real-time analysis. This new system, designed to be mounted on conveyor belts, trucks and buckets offers a comprehensive and continuous assessment of rock materials as they move through the mining process. This real-time analysis system not only identifies key rock grades such as p50 and p80 but also provides granulometric analysis with remarkable accuracy.

This conveyor-belt system, named Crusher Rocky, symbolizes Mineprism's dedication to innovation and practical problem-solving. It operates seamlessly, requiring minimal maintenance, and integrates effortlessly into existing mining operations. The system’s capability to provide instant, accurate data on rock particle sizes, shapes, and other essential metrics marks a significant advancement in mining technology.

Mineprism’s journey from a web-app solution to a sophisticated, real-time conveyor belt analysis system showcases their ability to evolve and adapt to the needs of the mining industry. Their commitment to innovation was further recognized at the globally acclaimed Sandvik Startup Challenge, where they ranked among the top three from an impressive lineup of 135 startups across 28 countries.

As Mineprism continues to refine its technology, the focus remains on advancing the efficiency and accuracy of mining operations. Their AI Rock Segmentation Analysis System, with its roots in smartphone simplicity and its expansion into advanced real-time analysis, stands as a testament to their pioneering spirit in the field of mining technology.
