Metso, Helsinki, Finland, will launch its Metso Metrics software for mobile M&J preshredders at IFAT 2018, which takes place May 14-18 in Munich. The software is designed to further optimization of shredder capacity, efficiency and reliability with near real-time data.
"Tracking the performance and condition of a mobile shredder can be challenging. With Metso Metrics, our customers will have the right information at the right time to make the decisions that allow them to get the most out of their equipment. Added intelligence helps achieve improved utilization rates and operational efficiency," Henning Lindbjerg, head of strategic projects, business development, recycling at Metso, says.
The cloud-based, remote monitoring and data visualization service gives customers near real-time access to data and insights pertaining to the shredder’s operational performance and maintenance needs. Optionally, Metso's expert service can analyze the data and provide recommendations for further improvement of the shredder's operation and reliability in its operating environment.
Metso Metrics will be integrated with all mobile M&J preshredders from August 2018 onward, the company says.
A demo of Metso Metrics is being showcased at Metso's booth, 451/550 in hall B4, at IFAT 2018.
