Metso Outotec has closed the acquisition of the Australia-based fastener and wear monitoring technology provider Davies Wear Plate Systems, extending its wear lining portfolio and capabilities.
The acquired technology includes fasteners with a unique locking mechanism that does not require traditional studs and nuts and thus enables faster and safer maintenance work. Davies Wear Plate Systems’ portfolio also includes wear monitoring technology, which provides a real-time forecast of wear and expected liner change-out timing. The monitoring solution can be fitted to any metallic or ceramic liner, independent of attachment systems.
“This acquisition supports our target to offer comprehensive and unique solutions for the entire wear lining value chain. We are eager to introduce these advanced solutions globally to our customers; we now have the market’s widest range of optimized wear protection solutions, tools and services. The new technology will increase safety during maintenance and increase uptime. I warmly welcome the new colleagues to become part of the Metso Outotec team,” says Sami Takaluoma, President of Consumables business area at Metso Outotec.
