JULY 2019 • E&MJ 55 SUPPLIERS REPORT Leadership at the company reported the facility will enable the company to pair certain engineering and project staffers with service personnel. "For our clients in the mining, cement and chemical in- dustries this means they benefit from an integrated project life-cycle approach, in- corporating the latest products and tech- nologies," Andrew Howie, CEO, thyssenk- rupp Industrial Solutions Australia, said. IMP Automation Group Joins FLSmidth Following the approval of the competition authorities, FLSmidth completed the ac- quisition of IMP Automation Group. IMP's solutions will complement the products FLSmidth offers for quality con- trol and optimization of the mining pro- cess, the former reported. "We are con- fident that our product offering covering manual and automated sampling and lab- oratory solutions can open new doors with our mining customers worldwide," Tina Knudsen, general manager, sampling, mining, FLSmidth, said. The integration of IMP will enable FLS- midth to support the expanding market for automated laboratories, which has experi- enced recent growth due to a combination of high exploration activity and increased focus on productivity, automation and dig- italization, the company reported. The IMP business, to include its 130 employees, was expected to be consoli- dated into FLSmidth in June. Most of the purchase amount was expected to be paid out in Q2 2019. Metso's Popular HP Crusher Turns 30 Metso announced it reached the mile- stone of 10,000 Nordberg HP cone crushers sold globally. The 10,000th unit was delivered to Eurovia in a ceremony at Metso's Mâcon facility in France. Synchronously, the HP series cele- brates its 30 th anniversary this year, the company reported. Metso leadership described the crusher as one of the company's most widely used innovations. "It's a technol- ogy that has been evolving throughout the years to meet customers' changing needs, making their operations more successful through proven performance and reliable output," Arto Halonen, vice president, aggregates crushers, Metso, said. "That's most likely why HP has be- come an industry standard for a variety of aggregates and mining applications." The crusher originated in Milwaukee in the early 1980s, evolved, and was of- ficially introduced in 1989. The series is manufactured at Metso's Mâcon facility and elsewhere. With the acquisition of IMP, FLSmidth completes its portfolio of automated laboratory solutions for the mining industry.
