Metso is expanding its rubber mill lining production capacity globally by investing in new presses to meet the growing demand in the global mining market (Fig.). After completing the investment in 2015, Metso’s global rubber mill linings production capacity at the existing wear part manufacturing plants will increase by 30 %. The investment, totaling approx. 10 million €, will be completed in two phases. The first set of presses is scheduled to be in operation by the end of 2013. It includes the installation of presses in Chile, Sweden, Canada, Mexico and Peru. Decisions for the second phase will be done based on the demand outlook in early 2013 and implemented in 2014-2015. Metso currently has wear part manufacturing units on 6 continents. The growing population of large grinding mills and the high utilization rates of the existing mills are driving the demand for large, high-quality grinding wear parts. Using large sized liner assemblies reduces the number of pieces to be handled and shortens the duration of the maintenance shutdown.
