Metso will showcase its latest innovations for the aggregate industry at ConExpo-Con/Agg, exhibiting in Central Hall (Booth C31531) of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Metso will feature the new MX3 crusher and a special Lokotrack mobile crushing plant equipped with an MX4 crusher. The new Lokotrack ST4.10 mobile screen is a high-capacity screening plant for quarrying, further adding to Metso’s range of hybrid equipment.

These new solutions will be on display at the show.

Metso’s offerings will also include a new lightweight truck body for hauling more with less. The solution is available for all major off-highway truck models used in quarrying and mining operations, according to Metso.

“At Metso we’ve turned our over 150 years of experience in crushing and screening into solutions that aggregate producers and contractors all over the world depend on to increase their production and profitability, year in and year out,” says Simon Pelletier, senior vice president for the U.S. and Canada at Metso. “This year, we have built our show specifically with small to mid-sized quarrying and general contractors’ needs in mind.”

Metso will also demonstrate how Metso Metrics Services for managing and monitoring a Lokotrack fleet can help optimize utilization, reduce surprises and keep costs in check.

What else to look for

Additionally, Metso will introduce the Nordtrack product family, with features for general contractors and small- to medium-capacity aggregate producers. The new Nordtrack range includes track-mounted crushers and screens, as well as track-mounted and wheel-mounted stacker conveyors for recycling, demolition and small quarries.

“Transportation and landfill are a major part of the costs related to demolition and recycling,” Pelletier says. “Also, recycled aggregates are becoming more acceptable in many regions. We are excited to showcase to ConExpo-Con/Agg visitors our latest solutions to enable new business opportunities and savings in recycling and demolition.”
