Metso has hit the landmark of 1 000+ delivered projects in the past decade for stationary aggregate crushing and screening plants. These projects include complete and modular stationary plant deliveries, as well as optimisation projects for brownfield plants worldwide. In 2018 alone, Metso delivered more than 30 stationary plant optimisation projects.

At the recently ended Institute of Quarrying South Africa’s (IQSA) 50th Annual Conference, Chief Inspector of Mines David Msiza noted that health and safety trends are improving on South African mines.

Contractors seeking consistent quality concrete in situations where poor or variable quality aggregates are the norm can dramatically improve results with the addition of an innovative new product from construction chemical manufacturer, Mapei.

Metso is introducing a completely new mobile screen unit enabling new business opportunities in screening. The world premiere of the Lokotrack ST2.3 mobile multi-use screen took place at bauma 2019.

Roads that are not properly and timeously maintained are costing South Africa millions of rands and negatively affecting our economy and society. This is according to Saied Solomons, President of the South African Road Federation (SARF) and CEO of the Southern African Bitumen Association (SABITA).

Modern crushing plants have become more and more complex as their requirements rise. At the same time, the technology must be safe and as simple as possible to operate – and without lengthy instruction and familiarisation periods. This is the challenge which faced Kleemann and at bauma 2019 the company showcases innovative solutions for safe and simple operation of crushing and screening plants.
