Metso Outotec Metrics extended to stationary crushers
Comprehensive digital solution enables new types of services to help customers reach production targets
METSO Outotec are introducing yet another innovative digital offering expansion that will cover stationary crushers and NW Rapid equipment. The expanded Metrics remote monitoring solution offers full connectivity to support aggregate contractors and quarries with their critical crushing and screening process, allowing them to make data-driven decisions that impact their operations.
Metrics helps customers to optimize their process, as they can easily see how changes implemented at their site impacted their operations. For example, continuous real-time data 24 h a day, seven days a week, helps customers and Metso Outotec service teams to boost equipment availability and reduce unplanned downtime.
‘All our aggregates customers can now benefit from our remote monitoring solution,’ said Heikki Laxell, director of value selling development at Metso Outotec. ‘Accessing all the powerful data through a single Metrics portal is our guiding principle when it comes to the development of our offering.
‘Metso Outotec Metrics is the cornerstone of our digital offering, providing customers with optimized uptime and performance through our aggregates services and solutions. We want to support our customers in reaching the full potential of their production plants by switching to a higher gear when it comes to performance. ‘Commit to understanding’ is the crucial first step towards achieving an optimized plant, and we want to be there every step of the way.’
Metso Outotec Metrics enables new types of Life Cycle Services (LCS) contracts by integrating digital offerings to continuously improve the efficiency of customer processes. The new remote monitoring solution brings more uptime, capacity, and performance, which, in turn, supports improved operational efficiency and brings multiple sustainability benefits.
Being more efficient and having a higher utilization rate enhances sustainability. In addition, the customer benefits through reduced machine idling and energy consumption as well as improved wear performance, which leads to less waste.
Key features and benefits of Metso Outotec Metrics include:
- With its round-the-clock online monitoring capabilities, Metrics offers improved safety, increased uptime and throughput, and reduced unplanned maintenance
- Operators, controllers and service professionals can see a real-time analysis of performance
- The user interface can be tailored to address different customer needs. New features and functions can also be updated remotely
- An easy-to-read dashboard with OEM insights makes it possible to quickly detect potential issues and take corrective actions proactively
- Metrics includes CO2 tracking for sustainability benefits for mobile Lokotracks.
While newer machines come equipped with Metso Outotec Metrics, legacy equipment can, in most cases, be modernized to integrate digital connectivity with a Retrofit Kit. In the first phase, the Retrofit Kit is available for a wide range of tracked and wheel-mounted crushers and screens.
Metso Outotec Metrics for stationary crushers is Metso Outotec’s third launch for the aggregates industry this year. Previous launches included an upgraded version of Metrics for Lokotrack mobile crushers and screens and Metrics for stationary screening equipment. The Metrics solution is part of Metso Outotec’s Planet Positive portfolio.
