Metso Metrics Services further enhances customers' mobile crushing & screening operations
Metso Metrics Services is a new state-of-the-art digital solution helping Metso customers to further optimise their mobile crushing and screening equipment operations and maintenance.
It allows customers to leverage the possibilities offered by advanced analytics and cloud-based technologies.
Mobile crushers frequently move between sites, making it challenging to track, monitor and maintain a fleet of equipment for maximum performance. Through a remote communication device mounted on a mobile equipment, Metso Metrics Services provides a dashboard view of critical operational and maintenance data - from utilisation rates to production levels and fuel consumption.
With secured access, the solution allows for data-driven decisions that impact crushing operations, the firm says.
"Making the most out of the assets depends on data you can trust,” says Giuseppe Campanelli, vice president, service solutions at Metso. “Having the right information at the right time helps customers make important operational or maintenance decisions to improve uptime as well as utilisation and production rates. Metso Metrics Services is designed to collect and provide this crucial data in one easy-to-use interface.”
Combined with Metso's network for troubleshooting or optional assistance with analysis, Campanelli says the product provides tools for “continuous improvement, both in performance as well as safety and sustainability”.
Metso Metrics Services helps to identify underperforming assets and training opportunities, as well as to control maintenance and inventory costs. With the equipment maintenance plan integrated into the solution, plant operators can stay on top of their equipment's needs - making it easier to anticipate change-outs of spares and wears, the firm insists.
"Metso Metrics is an excellent example of how we can help our customers take their operations to the next level with digitalisation," Campanelli concludes.
