Cummins Foundation Grants Support Employees Building Stronger Communities

AS A HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER IN THE CUMMINS DISTRIBUTION BUSINESS IN BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA, NATALIA GIQUEAUX KNOWS HOW IMPORTANT PROPER JOB TRAINING CAN BE FOR SUCCEEDING IN A CAREER.

So when she and her colleagues saw people in their community struggling to get jobs, they put their skills to work to make a difference.

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.

5 Ways New Cummins App is Cutting Assessment Time to Minutes

THE NEW GUIDANZ™ MOBILE APP IS TAKING WHAT ONCE COULD BE A 2-HOUR PROCESS OR LONGER TO ASSESS WHAT’S GOING ON WITH AN ENGINE AND REDUCING IT TO MERE MINUTES.

It’s another example of how technology is changing not just diesel engines, but the way they are serviced. Here’s how the new app is getting customers back to work faster:

Cummins Reports First Quarter 2017 Results

First quarter revenues of $4.6 billion increased 7 percent from the same quarter in 2016. Stronger demand from construction and mining customers and higher sales from a distributor acquisition in the fourth quarter of last year, more than offset the impact of weaker truck production in North America. Currency negatively impacted revenues by approximately 1 percent compared to last year, primarily due to a stronger US dollar. International sales improved by 17 percent primarily due to growth in China and Europe while revenues in North America increased 1 percent.

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.

Cummins’ Locomotive Demonstrates It’s Great For Freight

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.
