At the CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas Metso launched the Metso MXTM cone crusher, based on the patented Multi-Action crushing technology, which combines the piston and rotating bowl into a single crusher. The new crusher provides a giant leap in profitability by cutting operational costs 10 % and enabling 10 % higher uptime compared to traditional cone crushers. “Two individual crushing methods based on the piston and rotating bowl were conjoined, and as a result, we created the MX Cone with Multi-Action technology,” says Jouni Mahonen, VP, Global Sales & Product Support at Metso.
Designed for the most demanding rock conditions and with a special focus on automated adjustment features, the Metso MX enables extremely cost-effective and safe operations. It also provides a very high reduction ratio with a premium end-product shape and consistency critical in aggregate applications. Its robust design makes the Metso MX also very suitable for demanding mining applications. The key benefit of the Metso patented Multi-Action technology is the easy under-load setting adjustment and wear compensation without having to stop the process. This can be now combined with extended wear life and better mechanical protection. Optimal cavity design, stroke direction and effectively distributed crushing action lead to the ultimate rock-on-rock crushing motion. This combined with the innovative Multi-Action technology results in extended maintenance intervals and higher production. The Metso MX also provides maximized tramp release distance with high protection against uncrushable objects and overloading.
