Metso says it has reached a significant milestone by selling 10,000 Nordberg HP cone crushers globally.
The 10,000th HP cone crusher unit was handed over to the French aggregates and asphalt producer and urban infrastructure development company Eurovia in a ceremony held today at Metso’s Mâcon facility in France.
The HP cone crusher can be used in a range of fixed and mobile applications such as limestone to taconite and ballast production, the company adds.
Arto Halonen, vice president, aggregates crushers at Metso, says: “The HP is undoubtedly one of Metso’s most widely used innovations. It’s a technology that has been evolving throughout the years to meet customers’ changing needs, making their operations more successful through proven performance and reliable output. That’s most likely why HP has become an industry standard for a variety of aggregates and mining applications.”
According to Metso, the HP series cone crusher originated in Milwaukee, US, where the Nordberg research programme provided the basis for a new type of cone crusher introduced in 1989.
“This is an important milestone for Metso and we want to thank our customers for their continued confidence in us during the first 30 years of the HP’s journey and look forward to explore new development possibilities in the years to come,” Halonen added.
