Metso launches Nordberg HP350e cone crusher for higher performance

Metso Corporation’s press release on March 25, 2024, at 21.00 EET

Metso is introducing the latest unit, Nordberg® HP350e, to its Nordberg® HPe crusher series launched in 2023. The Nordberg® HPe crushers are engineered to meet the evolving and constantly increasing performance needs of the aggregates and mining industries. The new Nordberg® HP350e™ offers enhanced performance, higher uptime, easier and safer maintenance, and a series of other improvements, making it the perfect choice for diverse rock processing operations.

“The launch of the Nordberg® HPe crusher series during CONEXPO-CON/AGG trade show last year was a success, and now we are proud to bring to the market our latest addition to the series, the Nordberg® HP350e™ cone crusher. Compared to the first crusher on the series, HP200e, the new crusher, HP350e, belongs to a larger size class of crushers. We are excited to expand the Nordberg® HPe series to bring to the market a wider offering of these high-performance crushers fit for different production purposes,” tells Ilkka Somero, Product Manager of HP Cones at Metso’s Aggregates business area.

The Nordberg HP350e cone crusher offers several unique benefits including:

Enhanced performance

  • New enhanced kinematics and more efficient chambers.
  • Up to +10% performance in secondary and tertiary application (as compared to HP300).

Improved uptime and serviceability

  • No-backing liners for quick, easier and safer liner change.
  • Head anti-spin brake extends liner wear life.
  • Optional ring bounce monitoring feature for active overload protection.
  • New feed cone lifting tool, for safe lifting and handling.

Wider application coverage

  • Three alternative kinematics to choose from.
  • Alternative speeds
  • Exceptionally wide chamber offering: 10 innovative application specific no-backing chamber designs for secondary, tertiary and quaternary stages

Efficient parts lifetime economy

Fully covered aftermarket support as most parts are common between the earlier HP300 design and HP350e and the rest remain either interchangeable or upgradable. Current HP300 owners can purchase Metso’s HPe upgrade kits, enabling economical access to some of the new HPe features, including Enhanced kinematics, Head anti-spin brake, and Ring bounce monitoring, as well as monitor and No-backing liners via head and bowl upgrade. If need be, the new HP350e can also utilize older-generation HP300 backing liners features. 

Nordberg® HPe series crushers will be also available as US compliant NordplantTM Pre-designed Crushing Modules (TM). These modules provide convenient all-in-one delivery with quick assembly for replacing crushing stations or in new quarries.

Furthermore, Metso is also introducing the first HPe series crusher on tracks for improved mobility. The Lokotrack® LT200HPX™ is equipped with a Nordberg® HP200e cone crusher and a 2-deck pre-screen with up to 40% higher capacity than the LT200HP.

The new HP350e is showcased at AGG1, 2024 at Metso booth #511. Metso’s experts welcome the visitors of the show to join a special customer launch event at the Metso booth on Monday, March 25, starting at 3.30 pm. Held in Nashville, Tennessee, USA on March 25-27, AGG1 is one of the leading aggregates industry events globally.
