Metso to launch revolutionary Metso MX crusher in Europe along with new Lokotrack jaw plants at Steinexpo quarry exhibition
29 August 2017
At Steinexpo, the biggest quarry exhibition in Europe, Metso will introduce the revolutionary Metso MX cone crusher featuring multi-action crushing technology to the European market, as well as the updated Lokotrack mobile jaw plants. Since the US launch in March, over 20 MX crushers have been sold globally.
“The sales of MX crushers have really exceeded our expectations, and they are evidence of our customers’ desire to achieve longer uptime and reduced operating costs. Metso’s new MX cone, combining piston and rotating bowl adjusting technologies, fits well with the current needs of aggregates producers,” comments Jouni Mähönen, VP for Global Sales & Product Support at Metso.
“We believe that interest in MX will be high in Europe, too, after Steinexpo. Metso has been known on this continent for decades as a main developer of cone crusher technologies. Introducing the multi-action MX shows that our commitment to finding new solutions for our customers continues to be strong,” Mähönen adds.
The Metso MX4 being displayed during Steinexpo operates in the 315 kW power range. Benefiting from the maximum feed opening of 254 mm, the crusher can reach capacities of up to 600 metric tons per hour.
Original Lokotrack range keeps improving
During the Steinexpo quarry exhibition, taking place in Homberg, Germany from August 30 to September 2, Metso will also display two examples of its proven, original range of Lokotrack mobile crushing plants.
The Lokotrack LT120 presents a robust, 60-ton quarry range meeting all customer requirements for capacity and total efficiency in primary crushing in quarries. The large, 1,200 ×870 mm jaw feed opening accepts even large feed sizes. Its sister model, the LT120E, enables economical full-electric use with an external power source.
The more compact and recently updated LT96S is a very popular model in the German market in processing recycled materials. The optional active setting control ensures continuous process, while in case of a blockage, the jaw opens to prevent damage. ASC also returns the setting automatically to the previous setting used.
“Both Lokotrack jaw plants on display represent the most popular crushing plants in their size classes globally. The key features of both are their good fuel economy, latest Tier 4 Final motor technology, safe use, and easy service,” says Jouni Hulttinen, product manager for Compact and Large Lokotracks at Metso.
Daily crushing demos and crushing experts to be seen
Metso is taking part in Steinexpo together with its German distributor, Fischer Jung. During the four-day exhibition, there will be daily crushing demonstrations and the chance to meet crushing experts.
Other products that will be exhibited at the Metso/Fischer Jung stand include Metso’s ES303 inclined screen, VS and HR200 pumps, Trellex screening media, and a conveyor system.
