Rock Crushing Technology

The Metso MX cone crusher is based on patented multi-action 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 by 10% and enabling 10% higher uptime compared to traditional cone crushers.
The key benefit of the Metso patented multi-action technology is the easy under-load setting adjustment and wear compensation without having to stop the process. This can now be combined with extended wear life and better mechanical protection. Optimal cavity design, stroke direction and effectively distributed crushing action lead to the ultimate rock-on-rock crushing motion. This combined with the innovative Multi-Action technology results in extended maintenance intervals and higher production.
The Metso MX also provides maximised tramp release distance with high protection against uncrushable objects and overloading. The crusher can utilise up to 70% of the mass of new wear parts. Thanks to the intelligent design of the crusher, the quality characteristics of all sized end-product fractions stay consistent throughout the lifetime of the wear parts.
