Metso and Magotteaux have signed an agreement to distribute Magotteaux special, composite-type wear parts for impact crushers on an exclusive basis, aiming to enhance the distribution and customer service globally. The contract is valid on worldwide basis excluding USA, Canada and Mexico, where the agreement is of non-exclusive type.

"With this agreement, we are able to combine Metso's proven knowledge of impact crushers with the special experience of Magotteaux regarding composite type of blow bars used with impactors. As a result, we can offer our customers with the lowest total cost of operation for stationary and mobile impactor technology," says Osmo Mäki-Uuro, VP, Crusher Wear Solutions, Mining and Construction, Metso.

"Metso's sales network can now widen its services offering by bidding our customers with more efficient and economical Magotteaux solution, used normally at quarry and recycling applications. As a bonus, the working safety will be improved thanks to the longer wear change intervals," Mäki-Uuro adds.

According to the agreement, Metso's global sales and service network and its distributors are the sole channels to offer the Magotteaux blow bars and impact plates marketed under Xwin, Recyx and neoX product brands for all Metso crushers (except USA, Canada and Mexico).

Attached around the rotor of the impact crusher, the blow bars are the key parts securing efficient impact crushing. Typically, impactors are used to primary and secondary crushing of medium hard materials like limestone.
