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.

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.
When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
