Metso to introduce new innovations for the aggregates industry at CONEXPO-CON/AGG
Finnish industrial machinery company Metso is set to showcase new technologies for the aggregates industry at CONEXPO-CON/AGG – North America’s largest construction trade show.
The Las Vegas based event runs from March 10 to 14 2020 and will showcase new offerings across areas such as aggregates, asphalt, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, mining and utilities.
Simon Pelletier, SVP USA & Canada at Metso, said: “This year, we have built our show specifically with small- to mid-sized quarrying and general contractors’ needs in mind.”
Special CONEXPO-CON/AGG offerings
Previously launched at the 2017 show, the MX Multi-Action cone crushing technology has been welcomed by quarry operators around the world with close to 100 units sold in total globally.
This year, Metso will feature the new MX3 crusher and a special Lokotrack mobile crushing plant equipped with an MX4TM crusher.
The new Lokotrack ST4.10 mobile screen is a high-capacity screening plant for quarrying, which adds to Metso’s range of hybrid equipment. These new solutions will be on display for CONEXPO-CON/AGG visitors.
Metso’s key offerings at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 also include the new lightweight truck body solution Metso Truck Body for hauling more with less. The complete solution is available for all major off-highway truck models used in quarrying and mining operations.
At the show, the company will demonstrate how Metso Metrics Services for managing and monitoring a Lokotrack fleet can help optimise utilisation and keep costs in check.
“Transportation and landfill are a major part of the costs related to demolition and recycling. Also, recycled aggregates are becoming more acceptable in many regions. We are excited to showcase to CONEXPO-CON/AGG visitors our latest solutions to enable new business opportunities and savings in recycling and demolition,” Pelletier said.
Metso will also introduce the Nordtrack product family with purpose-designed and field-proven features for general contractors and small- to medium-capacity aggregate producers.
The new Nordtrack range includes track-mounted crushers and screens, as well as track-mounted and wheel-mounted stacker conveyors ideal for recycling, demolition and small quarries.
Metso is a global industrial company offering equipment and services for the sustainable processing and flow of natural resources in the mining, aggregates, recycling and process industries.
The firm is listed on the Nasdaq Helsinki in Finland and had sales of about EUR 3.2 billion in 2018. Metso employs over 14,000 people in more than 50 countries.
