Metso Outotec has expanded Metrics to remotely monitor stationary crushers and NW Rapid equipment. The monitoring technology offers connectivity to support aggregate contractors and quarries with their crushing and screening process.

Metrics helps contractors optimize their crushing process as they can see how changes implemented at their site have impacted their operations. Continuous real-time data helps users and the Metso Outotec service teams to increase equipment availability and reduce unplanned downtime.

"All our aggregates customers can now benefit from our remote monitoring solution. 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," says Heikki Laxell, Director, of value selling development at Metso Outotec.

Metso Outotec Metrics enables new life cycle services (LCS) contracts by integrating digital technologies to improve the efficiency of an operation. The remote monitoring solution helps increase uptime, capacity, and performance. Being more efficient and having a higher utilization rate enhances sustainability. In addition, the operator benefits through reduced machine idling and energy consumption as well as improved wear performance which leads to less waste.

Benefits of Metso Outotec's Metrics

  • Improved safety, increased uptime and throughput, and reduced unplanned maintenance with constant machine monitoring.
  • Operators, controllers, and service professionals can see a real-time analysis of performance.
  • The user interface can be tailored to address different user needs. New features and functions can also be updated remotely.
  • A 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. The retrofit kit is available for a wide range of track and wheel-mounted units, crushers, and screens.
