Metso and Magotteaux, Belgium, have signed an agreement to distribute Magotteaux special, composite type wear parts for impact crushers (Fig.) on an exclusive basis. The contract is valid on world-wide basis excluding USA, Canada and Mexico, where the agreement is of non-exclusive type. “With this agreement, we are able to combine Metso‘s proven knowledge of impact crushers with the special experience of Magotteaux regarding composite type of blow bars used with impactors. As a result, we can offer our customers with the lowest total cost of operation for stationary and mobile impactor technology,” comments Osmo Mäki-Uuro, VP, Crusher Wear Solutions, Mining and Construction, Metso.
According to the agreement, Metso‘s global sales and service network and its distributors are the sole channels to offer the Magotteaux blow bars and impact plates marketed under Xwin®, Recyx® and neoX® product brands for all Metso crushers (except USA, Canada and Mexico). Attached around the rotor of the impact crusher, the blow bars are the key parts securing efficient impact crushing. Typically, impactors are used to primary and secondary crushing of medium hard materials like limestone.
