Metso is expanding its crushing and screening offering with a new software application called Metso Remote IC.
Metso Remote IC is used for remote control and monitoring of the crushing and screening process, connecting all the Lokotrack crushers and screens at the site wirelessly.
Using the app, the operator can view all the Lokotrack train machines and their main process parameters using a dashboard. In problem situations, the Remote IC automatically stops the feeder, preventing overloading.
“One of the key features of the Remote IC is that there is no need for the operator to exit the excavator cabin to adjust the crushers or to stop the feeder in an overflow situation,” Metso aggregates business area director, automation Toni Peltomäki said.
“The ability to control and monitor the crushing and screening process from a single application has a significant impact on safety and eventually process productivity, since unnecessary process stops can be avoided.”
Another feature of the Remote IC app is that it can be operated by one person and viewed by many.
“We are constantly developing our products and digital tools to help our customers improve their productivity,” Metso aggregates senior vice president Renaud Lapointe said.
“Remote IC not only increases the productivity and safety of the plant, but it can also positively impact the employees’ experience and help attract new skilled workforce.”
