Metso Outotec is introducing yet another innovative digital offering expansion to now 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.
Metrics helps customers to optimize their process, as they can easily see how changes implemented at their site have impacted their operations. For example, continuous, 24/7 real-time data helps customers and our 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, 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, and this 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.
By combining Metrics with its global service footprint, Metso Outotec and its distributor partners can support customers in making data-driven decisions that impact their operations, the company said.

Metrics Built-in to New Equipment, Legacy Machines
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 track and wheel-mounted units, crushers and screens.
Metso Outotec Metrics for stationary crushers is Metso Outotec's third launch for the aggregates industry this year. The previous launches include 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.
