High-performance machines and environmentally compat- ible solutions for natural stone and recycling applications were center stage at the show, including: •  The heavy-duty MOBICAT MC 120 Z PRO mobile jaw crusher. With the MC 120 Z PRO, Kleemann showcased its latest development for use in quarries. The plant features throughput of up to 650 tph, with a powerful diesel-electric drive that supports external power supply. It is quipped with an integrated, double-deck prescreen with an extra- large screening surface (3.5 sq. meters). •  The MOBISCREEN MS 953 EVO, where flexibility meets precision. The new screening machines stand out with their high degree of versatility, optimum transport prop- erties and fast set-up times. The feature very high output, processing up to 500 tons of material per hour with its 9.5 sq. meters screening surface. With their advanced control system, operating conditions are always conveniently visi- ble, and all machine functions can be controlled easily and intuitively. •  The flexible impact crusher MOBIREX MR 130 Z EVO2, now with an environmentally friendly package. More and more countries, towns and communities are introducing regulations on noise and dust emission. Therefore, Klee- mann offers solutions for effective noise reduction and dust containment. The Wirtgen Group (Kleemann), Metso Introduces New MX3 Cone Crusher Metso introduced the latest addition to the versatile MX Multi-Action cone crusher series at bauma 2019. The MX3 enables improved crusher productiv- ity and lower operating costs with a design optimized especially for mid- sized quarrying. "Our customers are constantly looking to improve their operational efficiency and to optimize yield for the most desired product fraction. With MX Multi-Action technology, we can help our customers to achieve these targets. After successfully introducing MX4 to the market earlier, we are excited to launch the MX3 model, so that an even wider range of aggregate producers can benefit from the unique advan- tages MX and Metso can offer," said Arto Halonen, vice president, crushers, Aggregates Business Area at Metso. The MX enables cost-effective and safe operations with a high reduction ratio, great product shape and consistency, all of which are critical in aggregate applications. The patented Multi-Ac- tion technology enables higher uptime and savings in the operational costs of crushing operations. With the selective production features MX offers, crusher production can be optimized to max- imize the yield of desired fractions. Crusher operations have been made easy and safe with advanced Metso IC series automation. The Metso MX3 is suitable for second- ary, tertiary and quaternary crushing stages. Designed for both hard and soft rock applications, the new Metso MX3 will be first available for stationary solutions. Since its introduction in 2017, the MX4 cone crusher has proven itself at various customer sites around the world. Multiple MX3 pre-launch units are already in operation, and now MX3 has been made available for wider public. "The MX4 has met our expectations and delivered instantaneous flow rate as well as improved crushing energy efficiency. We have also been piloting the MX3 on the quaternary stage since April 2018 and we are fully satisfied with its performance and plan to con- tinue with it," said Mathieu Kasprzak, director of operations at Durance Gran- ulats in France.
