Cummins Turbo Technologies Large Turbocharger Range Makes European Debut at Intermat
Cummins Turbo Technologies, a global engineering leader in turbocharger technology, is revealing a new addition to its existing range of large turbochargers for engines 16 litre and above to Europe for the first time.
The extensive range, set to make its European debut at INTERMAT (20-25 April 2015), provides robust flexible solutions for the off-highway sector. The launch will allow Cummins Turbo Technologies to bring to market the most efficient turbochargers in the heavy duty range with new technologies capable of improving overall turbocharger efficiency by up to 10%.*
The latest addition to this range, the Series 900, which has been designed to meet the diverse duty cycles of this engine range, draws on Cummins Turbo Technologies 30 years' experience of developing and manufacturing turbochargers for the 16 litre and above market. The robust and durable technologies that the complete range offers are suitable for applications from 400 to 6,400 horsepower (294-4707 kW). The announcement follows the company's unveiling of a range of products for the off-highway market at BAUMA 2013 and the US launch of the Series 900 at CONEXPO 2014, and marks its continued commitment to the sector.
Jonathan Wood – Executive Director, Research and Engineering said: "We're delighted to be bringing this range to Europe at INTERMAT. We understand the challenges faced by operators in the off-highway sector and work in partnership with our customers to develop advanced technological solutions that are fit for market. We tailor our development process to create solutions that complement our customers' business strategies and give the optimum level of confidence in the robustness and flexibility of our products, which is vital in minimising downtime.
"The Series 900 is designed to meet these needs and is the latest technology that highlights why we are the components provider of choice for many international off-highway customers. The advances of the Series 900 will be applied across the already robust and flexible product range, Series 800 and Series 1000, thanks to our world class research and development facility, to create the most efficient and diverse turbochargers we have ever produced for the 16 litre and above engine range."
Cummins Turbo Technologies also unveiled plans for investment in future technology solutions for the range to improve fuel efficiency. Despite the fall in fuel prices, fuel economy remains a priority for the off-highway sector. Cummins Turbo Technologies is working closely with customers to develop efficient and economic products, designed to support their future business strategies.
Jonathan Wood added: "Our close working relationship with customers always informs the focus of our research and development and that has shaped not just these developments, which we are showcasing at INTERMAT but also the further extensions to the range that we have planned."
"These competitive, market-proven products and technologies draw on our heritage of innovation and engineering excellence and will continue to deliver savings to our customers without ever compromising on performance."
