Metso introduced a drag-and-drop 3D crushing and screening plant configurator that enables professionals in the mining and aggregate industries to design plants through real-time insights.

The design and simulation tool, My Plant Planner, is available on metso.com and is free for anyone to use.

”We are really excited about My Plant Planner,” says Guillaume Lambert, vice president of crushing systems at Metso. “Our aim is to help our customers easily test different configurations and operating conditions to see how they affect process performance. The tool allows you to either design and simulate a new crushing and screening plant in 3D or test how upgrading your current equipment can improve performance.”

My Plant Planner includes features and insights to help in the planning of optimized crushing and screening circuits, Metso says. It is also possible to download a detailed report of the designed plant.

According to the company, the tool is based on Metso software: VPS and Bruno.

With My Plant Planner, users can design and simulate a crushing and screening circuit in the same tool in 3D. The configurator makes it easy to predict general power consumption of the system and to see the footprint of the circuit – a feature exclusive to My Plant Planner, Metso adds.

With the tool, users can pick and choose different types of crushers, screens and conveyors to strike the right balance for the circuit and easily identify bottlenecks to understand where extra capacity is needed. Factors such as capacity, load and power draw are updated in real time, as the circuit is designed and the parameters are updated.

At any point, users can download a report that gathers all details about the plant being designed. The report includes details on the chosen crushers, screens, conveyors and their parameters.
