Metso Outotec has released an expansion to the proprietary Metso Outotec Metrics system, allowing the quarrying industry to remotely monitor data from stationary crushers.
The expanded Metrics remote monitoring solution offers full connectivity to support aggregate contractors and quarries with their critical crushing and screening process.
The Metrics system helps customers to optimise their process, as the effect of changes implemented on site and how said changes have impacted said operations is visible remotely.
Continuous real-time data helps customers and our service teams to boost equipment availability and reduce unplanned downtime, as director of value selling development at Metso Outotec, Heikki Laxell, said.
“All our aggregates customers can now benefit from our remote monitoring solution,” Laxell said, “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 optimised uptime and performance through our aggregates services and solutions.”
The new remote monitoring solution brings more uptime, capacity and performance, and supports improved operational efficiency and brings multiple sustainability benefits.
Being more efficient and having a higher utilisation rate enhances sustainability, as Laxell says.
“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 optimised plant, and we want to be there every step of the way.”
In addition, customer are said to be able to reduce machine idling and energy consumption as well as improved wear performance, which leads to less waste.
By combining Metrics with our global service footprint, Metso Outotec and its distributor partners can support customers in making data-driven decisions that impact their operations.
