Talking Cummins Truck Targets Future Engineers

ENGINEERS MAHESH YANAMANDRAM AND TOM McKINLEY WORK WITH HEAVY-DUTY TRUCK ENGINES AT CUMMINS. SO DESIGNING ENGINES MADE OF CARDBOARD, BOTTLE CAPS, RUBBER BANDS AND STRAWS WAS A LITTLE DIFFERENT FOR THEM.

But talking trucks are cool whether it’s an 18-wheeler heading down the highway or a kid’s STEM challenge built around the kitchen table.  It didn’t take long for the two men to agree it was the perfect idea for a Cummins-themed challenge on the popular website CurriosityMachine.org.

Virtual Reality Helps Cummins See the Big Picture

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.

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.

Women’s History Month is a time for recognizing the central role of women in U.S. history. For Cummins, it is also about highlighting the significance of diversity and inclusion.

Cummins Makes Ethical Companies List for a 10th Year

“Over the last 11 years, we have seen an impressive shift in societal expectations, aggressive emergence of new laws and regulation and geopolitical swings that can further disrupt the balance,” said Ethisphere CEO Timothy Erblich. “We have also seen how companies honored as the World’s Most Ethical respond to these challenges. They invest in their local communities around the world, embrace strategies of diversity and inclusion and focus on ‘long term-ism’ as a sustainable business advantage.”

Challenge Brings Environmental Benefits to Cummins Communities

The scene should have been picturesque: A stream running through a suburban village near Beijing, China, located not far from two national parks and reservoirs. Except it was anything but idyllic.

A growing population meant many private sewage pipelines discharged waste into the stream. For the 25 million people touched by the local watershed, that meant the increased possibility of waterborne diseases. The sewage disposal also meant that surface water became blocked and soil erosion was prevalent, endangering residents’ homes if a flood came.

I Am #HeForShe: Cummins Director of Engine Diagnostics, Paul McAvoy

March is Women's History Month. To celebrate, we're featuring an ongoing series of articles throughout the month highlighting gender equality champions at Cummins Inc.

These Cummins employees have each taken the UN’s #HeForShe pledge, joining over 1.3 million individuals who are taking action to create a gender-equal world. We’ll feature one profile a day starting Monday, March 6, 2017 through Friday, March 10, 2017.
