The XM series from Metso is made up of advanced premium crushing solutions that combine intelligence, durability, and value with a new digital package, resilient engineering, and warranty protection.

Designed for demanding mining applications, the XM Series uses robust Nordberg MP Series cone crushers and Superior MKIII primary gyratory crushers.

"What's transformative in the XM Series package is that it combines and gives access to the latest in digital technologies, SmartCone, SmartStation, and Mineral Crusher Pilot (MCP) automation. SmartCone, ideal for product size control, can increase production by up to 10 precent. MCP automation provides the easiest and fastest integration connectivity and allows for not just remote diagnostics, but remote actions, too. The three of these technologies combined give the edge needed to make smarter decisions about the crusher and prevent downtime," explained Vinicius Vilela, Vice President, Mining Crushers at Metso.

According to Metso, the Xtreme forged head used in Nordberg MP Series crushers is three times more robust than industry standards, and are durable in demanding crushing applications. Other notable upgrades include top-mount clamping cylinders, a hydraulic socket, an accumulator monitoring system, and tramp release half nut. The lifetime of the cavity liner can be increased up to 50 percent, and the protective parts' lifetime four times.

The lifetime of the Superior primary gyratory's mantle shell is up to 50 percent longer and offers double the concave and protective parts lifetime. The option of Rotable top shell solutions decreases downtime and adds sustainability advantages.
