46 | Crushing & Breaking October 2017 Products Metso introduced what it called "revolutionary rock crushing tech- nology." The Metso MX crusher is based on the patented Multi-Ac- tion 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 percent and enabling 10 percent higher uptime compared to traditional cone crushers, according to the company. "Aggregate producers are facing increasing pressure on efficiency and cost management. In order to meet these demands, we re- thought the crushing basics and combined our long experience in different cone crusher technologies with our extensive engineering knowledge. 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," said Jouni Mahonen, vice president, global sales and product support at Metso. Designed for the most demanding rock conditions and with a spe- cial 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 con- sistency critical in aggregate applications. Its robust design makes the Metso MX also very suitable for demanding mining applications.
