Today’s society has become so dependent on electricity. Most of us can’t imagine functioning without it.
Who would have thought that a down internet connection could be hazardous to your health and state of mind? Imagine a holiday weekend with a house full of guests and one of the worst but typical thunderstorms hits the city. Immediately people begin using phones as flashlights. Candles were good for about 3 hours then thoughts of calamity and chaos ensued.
Cummins Chairman and CEO, Tom Linebarger, and Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Jennifer Rumsey, address the media and discuss how Cummins is poised to lead in current and future technologies, including electrification.
In some ways, the cave at the Cummins Technical Center (CTC) in Columbus, Indiana (USA) is aptly named. Tucked away in the basement and dark much of the time, its inhabitants seem to prefer large, dark glasses, even when the lights are dim.
But some pretty high tech stuff is happening in the CAVE and at similar locations across Cummins where engineers are using virtual reality to get a one-to-one perspective on engines and components, often before anything is built.
Thankfully, Spring is finally here! Our landscape will gradually change from brown to green and will fill with pops of color from various flowers blooming once again. We’ll open our windows to let in fresh air and go out on walks to overload our senses with all that comes with Spring. However, as the snow melts and temperatures climb, we have to remember that Spring also brings severe storms.
So what do Americans like you do with $3,000 or so burning a hole in their pocket? You might think they go on a shopping spree or book a vacation, but Americans are actually quite practical with that extra money. Most use the money to pay off debt or they put that money towards a savings account, such as retirement savings.
Here's another practical way to use that extra money that can benefit you in the long run--invest in your home. Your home is likely one of your biggest investments. Why not take an extra couple thousands dollars and reinvest it this way?
The distinctive red and black locomotive powered by a Cummins’ QSK95 engine put up some impressive numbers over its first year of operation on the Indiana Rail Road, beyond just the weight it pulled.
The Cummins locomotive recorded a 16 percent improvement in fuel economy compared to the engine it replaced, an 89 percent reduction in oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and a 98 percent cut in particulate matter (PM).
What some call the company’s “mobile locomotive testing lab,” also demonstrated over 12 months that it has plenty of muscle, too.
