Gain critical data and insight on your fleets operational performance and maintenance needs

Metso Metrics Services

With mobile crushers often located at remote locations or being moved between production sites, it can be difficult to track and interpret the operating condition and performance of your equipment. 

Metso Metrics involves the mounting of a remote communication device on Lokotrack® crushing and screening equipment to enable easy and secured transmission of key operational and maintenance data.

Metso ICr™ wireless information and control system

Superior feed rate control for maximized production. Controlling your Lokotrack mobile crushing plants is now safer and more convenient than ever before. Metso ICr™ wireless information and control system let's you operate your plant from the cabin of an excavator.

Metso IC™ crusher automation

Metso IC crusher automation can be easily connected to any plant automation system used in the crushing and screening industry. This enables centralized control of the crusher and the whole plant, allowing the operator to safely control and alter crusher operating parameters according to production needs from a single location.

Advanced process control (APC)

APC maximizes the process outputs within predefined constraints by acting as a super-operator, computing and analyzing high volume data 24/7. It frees operators from supervision tasks and naturally stabilizes the process regime close the high end, causing less downtime and higher resource efficiency (wares, energy and water).  

Smart fully automatic control system

Vertical Plate Pressure Filters VPA

The Metso Vertical Plate Pressure Filters VPA are heavy duty machines, developed for filtration of metallic minerals, industrial minerals, coal and tailings. The Pressure Filter is controlled by a system consisting of a PLC connected to a PC screen, built in a well sealed and well insulated cabinet. All control logics are implemented in the PLC. On the PC monitor the filter operator can follow and control the filter operation and information such as settings, statistics and alarms.


Protect your SAG mill from costly damage for better profitability. AudioMill™ is a sound spectrum analysis tool for SAG mills used in primary grinding stages. A sensor measures the impacts of ball on shell, and by maintaining them in favorable range, it becomes part of an advanced control solution. This solution both protects the mill and maximizes impact grinding and thus, overall throughput.

Metso Maintenance Solution (MMS)

Improve equipment availability and optimize the use of resources with a cutting edge Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) for maintenance planning. Designed to meet your maintenance planning needs, MMS has Metso’s extensive maintenance and mining expertise built directly into it. 

Valve controls and limit switches

Valve controls and limit switches

High availability and easy interpretation are the key success factors in effective field device data analysis. Metso is committed to supporting open and standardized technologies. We can offer the best field devices and ensure the availability and usability of diagnostics information independent of your control, safety or asset management system.

Neles® ValvGuard VG9000 – intelligent safety solenoid

Safe, reliable operation with diagnostics and predictive maintenance. Neles ValvGuard’s unique construction enables the diagnostics part of the device to be active all the time and not dependent on the safety part. This is a true user benefit and provides maximum availability of the diagnostics information.

Expertune Planttriage Solutions

Optimize plant performance with Expertune Planttriage software and services. With diagnostics from instruments, valves, and controls, these tools and services help to save effort by focusing on the biggest payback issues, and by pinpointing the root causes, whether you have smart instruments and valves or older, analog hardware. 

"As a company, we are in a good starting position what comes to digitalization. With the Metso Digital Program we will create solutions to industry challenges, and our experts will be working with our customers and distributors to fully embrace the opportunities of digitalization."
