Metso extends NW Rapid range at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020
Line redesigned to permit transportation in the North American market
Metso has extended the NW Rapid series of transportable wheel-mounted crushing plants with a range developed specially to accommodate road transportation in North America.
The first models of the range are the NW120 Rapid portable jaw crushing unit and NW1213 Rapid portable impact crushing unit, which have been re-designed to permit their transportation in most states of the North American market.
"Traditionally, it has been very common in North America to put crushers on wheels. We developed the North America specific models to meet our customers' requirements: Road regulations are getting tighter and they are looking for more complete solutions from one supplier", says Julius Mäkelä, Director of Portable and Modular Solutions at Metso and adds, "We are pleased to tell our customers that the first NW1213 Rapid impact crusher is being delivered to the USA and a set of NW120 units are being prepared for delivery as we speak".
Crush and go
NW Rapid can be moved from one site to another using standard prime movers. Besides portability, other advantages of the NW Rapid models include quick set-up and a best-in-class production capacity of up to 500 metric tons per hour. NW Rapid has been designed so that the units can be set up in about an hour. The solution consists of modules that can be used to create a variety of combinations also in fixed installations as needed.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
