Challenge 2: Expanding the business and increasing capacity
As the production needs of aggregates producers vary, the equipment needs to be flexible for different projects. NW Rapid equipment is designed to be fed by an excavator, wheel loader or dump trucks. The product range covers machines for concrete and road construction aggregates, ballast and sub-bases as well as recycling applications.
The versatility of the Metso Outotec NW Rapid™ comes from its modular crushing stations, which can be applied in a variety of ways. The secondary crushing stations have the crusher and the screen on same chassis combined with the separate process and end product conveyors which make the entire plant versatile, still maintaining the footprint small and agile to transport.
This opens new business opportunities for aggregate contractors and quarry operators, and offers more flexibility in mining applications.
Challenge 3: Ensuring constant production
Even the most reliable equipment needs maintenance and parts to keep the process going. Metso Outotec’s global experts service support - together with dedicated distributors - offer financing, maintenance, service, as well as spares and wear parts. Essentially, everything that is needed to keep the plant up and running - but without the runaway operating costs.
Challenge 4: Improving sustainability and safety
For more sustainable operations, electric machinery is a good choice, especially if renewable power energy source can be utilized. NW Rapid plants are all electric, which makes the operation more sustainable. Electrically operated units are also easy to maintain, thus lowering operating costs even further.
We all have more important duties than crushing and screening – there's also safety to consider. The NW Rapid™ product range is designed to comply with EU health safety and environment standards. There are also added safety features of our own, such as dedicated lifting tools for wear part change and reliable platforms for safe access to maintenance locations.
