Metso launches new Nordtrack mobile crushing and screening product range
Metso is expanding its mobile crushing and screening solutions offering for the aggregates industry with an extensive new product portfolio. The new Metso Nordtrack range introduces 19 products designed to meet the requirements of general contractors in particular. The first deliveries are expected to take place during the first quarter of 2020.
"Our target is to create a comprehensive end-to-end offering to serve diverse customer needs. Metso has traditionally been exceptionally strong in the most demanding aggregates applications, such as hard rock. Our new Metso Nordtrack range complements our offering to better address the needs of small and midsized companies and general contractors looking for the right combination of productivity, availability and dependability at an attractive price point," says Renaud Lapointe, SVP, Business and Product Management of Aggregates Equipment at Metso.
The Metso Nordtrack mobile product portfolio is designed to make the contracting business more productive. With standard designs for off-the-shelf availability, plug-and-play features and extensive Metso support network, the Metso Nordtrack solutions are ideal for a variety of applications, such as recycling, demolition, and the processing of sand and gravel. The new range consists of altogether 19 mobile machines, including jaw crushers, impact crushers, screens and conveyors.
The new Metso Nordtrack product range is available for global markets through Metso's direct sales and distributor network. The range was launched during Metso's global Distributor Days, October 7-8, 2019, and it will be introduced to wider audiences at the CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 tradeshow in Las Vegas in March 2020.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
