2016 was an important year for us in many ways. First of all, it was filled with exciting news and events. Secondly, it was the year when we truly started blogging and sharing industry-specific and corporate information through our Metso experts. Talking openly about our knowledge, our people and our solutions – that’s how we can make a big difference to our customers.

Altogether more than 100 blog posts were published in our blog hub covering various topics. The most read blog posts reflect both popular themes like digitalization, technology and safety, as well as some of our key milestones.

In 2016, we won a couple of globally acknowledged awards, participated in major international events, such as MINexpo and Bauma, and launched many innovative products and solutions. In addition, we developed our thinking on how to include the big megatrends like digitalization and urbanization in everything we do. And last but not least, as part of our big organizational change, our headquarters moved to new, modern office premises.

Here they are - enjoy reading our TOP10 blog posts of 2016:

4. Metso NW Rapid™ – a portable crushing plant that puts sustainable profits first

All business owners want to maximize profits in a sustainable way.

5. Pushing the boundaries of comminution circuits with pioneering designs

The three biggest ways to reduce capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure (OPEX) through circuit design is to reduce the quantity of operating equipment, use the most efficient equipment available and ensure that the complete comminution circuit is designed to maximize plant efficiency. With new advances in equipment, such as the Metso MP®2500 cone crusher, the Metso HRC™3000 HPGR and the Metso VERTIMILL® VTM-4500-C, new exciting solutions are pushing the boundaries of circuit design.
