Cummins U.K. Finds New Ways to Shrink Carbon Footprint

The event featured a group of ambitious entrepreneurs, each ready to make their pitch to a panel of business leaders with a lot on the line. But this wasn’t a television show. It was the Cummins Environmental Gateway project.

Cummins leaders in the U.K. invited suppliers in to pitch new ideas that could help the company reach its goals for reducing water and energy use and producing less waste. The result was more than 100 submissions, 28 finalists and 12 winning ideas that will now be tested at Cummins’ sites around the country.

3D Printing Means Getting Great Ideas to the Market Faster

The gray, rectangular machine emitting a bright blue light doesn’t look particularly impressive as it quietly goes about its work at the Cummins Technical Center (CTC) in Columbus, Indiana....

3D printers can take extremely detailed instructions to make precise objects a layer at a time, with relatively little waste and, theoretically at least, anywhere in the world. That could not only impact innovation, but perhaps inventory someday and transportation, too.

A Whole Lot of Shaking Going On

Testing any generator to see if it will stand up to an earthquake is never easy...

...but if that generator weighs some 80,000 pounds and has an engine that’s 8 feet tall and 14 feet long, it’s especially challenging.

No wonder Cummins Power Generation employees were pleased to learn late last year that after months of planning, logistics and testing, the QSK95 generator set had passed the “shaker table test” for seismic certification.
