"Our comprehensive value adding services packages will materially improve the productivity of our customers' processes and their overall performance. The quality of our grinding media will lower both the wear rate of the grinding media as well as the operative costs for the customer" says Rodrigo Gouveia, SVP, Wears Solutions, Services business line, Mining and Construction, Metso.
Metso entered the grinding media business by acquiring the Spanish grinding media supplier Santa Ana de Bolueta (Sabo) in late 2013. The acquisition complemented Metso's current comminution wear parts offering for mining customers and helps the company to gain a better overall control of mill performance.
"The integration of Sabo into Metso has progressed well. We are currently expanding our grinding media factory in Bilbao to better meet the market demand", says Felix Fornaguera, VP, grinding media solutions, Services business line, Mining and Construction, Metso.
Grinding media is used inside grinding mills to improve the efficiency of the grinding process.
