Metso partners with Rockwell Automation to create new industry-leading
industrial IoT solutions for mining

Metso Corporation''s press release on May 31, 2017 at 02:00 p.m. EET

Metso has selected Rockwell Automation to deliver a global industrial Internet
of Things (IoT) platform that connects, monitors, and performs analytics for
Metso''s equipment and services, resulting in improved efficiency and
profitability for its mining and aggregates customers.

The digital solution will securely collect and store data from Metso''s equipment
around the globe, including new equipment as well as machines already in
operation. The solution will provide predictive analytics, preventive
maintenance and facilitate remote asset monitoring by Metso and its customers.

The industrial IoT solution is built on the Rockwell
Automation FactoryTalk Cloud platform, powered by Microsoft Azure. Rockwell
Automation and Microsoft have long collaborated on solutions required for
industrial digital transformation. The Metso solution is a direct result of
these efforts.

"For our mining and aggregates customers, access to real-time data enables
higher uptime, faster and safer shutdowns, and ultimately more tonnage processed
at lower cost. Enabled by an industrial IoT platform from Rockwell Automation
and global coverage with Microsoft Azure''s data centers, Metso can deliver
analyzed equipment data into the hands of its customers for advanced decision
making," says Jani Puroranta, Chief Digital Officer, Metso.

Metso began working with Rockwell Automation on a pilot program in 2015,
remotely monitoring an African-based mining crusher from a location in
Wisconsin. Metso was immediately able to use the data collected to identify
opportunities for improvements in machine performance. The quality of the
solution and support Rockwell Automation provided during the pilot gave Metso

confidence that a broader implementation of the industrial IoT platform would
drive the results it was seeking on a global scale.

"Metso has an inspiring vision to deliver powerful analytics and information
solutions in mining and aggregates that will drive business results for
customers" said Blake Moret, president and CEO, Rockwell Automation. "This is
the type of foresight and focus on application of IoT across operations that we
are excited to see developing in all industries."

Metso set up a Digital Program in 2016 to accelerate the company to a new level
in digital capabilities, which is critical to succeeding in the future of
minerals processing and flow control. Metso''s ambition is to become one of the
digital leaders in the industries it serves.
