Weir Motion Metrics

Headquartered on the University of British Columbia campus, Weir Motion Metrics uses artificial intelligence and computer vision to improve mining safety and energy efficiency.

This tech makes mining so much safer that many Weir customers refuse to operate their equipment without it.

Key stat: Weir’s solutions have been installed at more than 70 mines worldwide and are trusted by the largest mining companies, including Anglo American, Vale, KAZ Minerals, BHP Billiton, and Newmont. International exports accounted for 96 percent of the company’s 2021 revenue.
