Metso is expanding its production of rubber mill linings
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. 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 percent.
The investment, totaling approximately EUR 10 million, will be completed in two phases. The first set of presses, including Chile, Sweden, Canada, Mexico, and Peru, is scheduled to be in operation by the end of 2013. Decisions for the second phase will be based on the demand outlook in early 2013 and implemented in 2014-2015. Metso currently has wear part manufacturing units on six continents.
“This investment is in line with our strategic plans to strengthen our offerings in services business and expand the mill linings availability to meet the growing demand,” says João Ney Colagrossi, President, Services business line, Metso’s Mining and Construction segment.
With this investment, Metso is committed to ensure the availability and quality of its wear parts to mining customers globally, helping them to keep their installed base up and running at all times.
“We are committed to on-time delivery of parts to our customers. Logistical agility is only assured if our operations are located close enough to the customer sites,” says Rodrigo Gouveia, SVP, Services business line, Metso’s Mining and Construction segment.
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.
“Metso has developed mill lining solutions, which combine rubber and a variety of steel elements to optimize the weight, wear life, and ease of installation of liner systems. With our state-of-the-art technology, we are able to help our customers to maximize the productivity of their operations utilizing the best selection of materials for each application,” Gouveia adds.
Metso’s mining and construction professionals specialize in always bringing the right technology, processes, machinery and services to our customers in the aggregates production, construction, mining and minerals processing.
