Metso Campaigns Metso Outotec acquired Davies Wear Plate Systems


Improve safety, reduce maintenance

In August 2020, Metso Outotec closed the acquisition of the Australia-based fastening systems and wear monitoring technology provider Davies Wear Plate Systems, to extend its wear lining portfolio and capabilities. Davies’ solutions optimize safety and maintenance for change-outs of wear plates in the mining industry.

Improved safety

Fewer hot work situations, less exposure to confined spaces.

Increased uptime

Quick change-outs and long wear life means less maintenance.

Ease of access

Eliminating all external access requirements.

Reduced labor costs

Reduced downtime, improved wear utilization and lower operational cost per ton.

The acquired technology includes fasteners with a unique locking mechanism.
Innovation and technical expertise

The acquired technology includes fasteners with a unique locking mechanism that does not require traditional studs and nuts and thus enables faster and safer maintenance work.

Davies Wear Plate Systems’ portfolio also includes wear monitoring technology, which provides a real-time forecast of wear and expected liner change-out timing. The monitoring solution can be fitted to any metallic or ceramic liner, independent of attachment systems.
