Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) announced its latest solutions, for diesel engines, to meet the future needs of the commercial vehicle industry. Ahead of IAA Commercial Vehicle Show 2018, Hannover, Cummins Components have previewed key aspects of its new concept technology designed to achieve cleaner air through the minimisation of NOx, PM and CO2.
Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) announced a settlement agreement has been reached with JM Turbo Technology Corporation precluding the manufacture or sale of products that infringe Cummins patents.
The global engineering leader in turbocharging technologies chose IAA Hannover to unveil several near-market solutions, which it believes reflect the changing priorities of global engine and vehicle manufacturers whose future products are being developed to insulate customers from rising fuel prices.
Speaking at the event, Executive Director for Product Line Management & Marketing, Mark Firth commented: "With fuel prices rising steeply we foresee the trend in engine downsizing - making them smaller and lighter - gathering pace.
The bespoke two-stage technology, developed at the company’s technical centres in Huddersfield, UK and Columbus, Indiana USA, will be fitted to the Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel engine and was showcased in tandem with the engine at the show. It will offer flexible architecture that efficiently integrates and packages two turbochargers in series to deliver high performance levels whilst still meeting the stringent emissions targets of the light-duty market.
The shift in focus - from emissions driven innovation towards solutions that prioritize fuel economy - highlights Cummins Turbo Technologies’ belief that the industry has now reached the tipping-point at which global engine and vehicle manufacturers are developing products designed to insulate customers from rising fuel prices.

Bloodhound SSC is a supersonic car (SSC) being developed by some of the world’s leading engineers with the goal of achieving a 1,000 mph world land speed record. Primarily an education project its mission is to confront and overcome the impossible using science, technology, engineering and mathematics as well as motivating the next generation to deal with global 21st century challenges.
The undergraduates, who are working with Cummins as part of their degree studies, have organized displays and activities on the St Andrew’s Road site as part of World Environment Day. On show were a range of the latest techniques and products available from local specialists and community partners to reduce water consumption, power usage and food waste. Employees could also find out about the latest environmental initiatives at the Cummins facility and greener travel to work schemes.
The papers to be presented at IMechE include:
‘Development of a high temperature turbocharger for heavy duty applications’ details work carried out to ‘redesign the turbocharger’ in order to meet the changing requirements of HGVs and the drive towards reducing fuel consumption and emissions. The research has enabled the development of a turbocharger which can operate effectively using Stoichiometric Natural Gas, maintaining similar levels of durability and performance as a diesel turbocharger.
