The range of products that will be on display at the tradeshow include-
M15 diesel engine
The Cummins non-emission M15 diesel engine features an electronic fuel system designed to enhance fuel economy and drivability for operators. The engine boasts of low Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) and is upgradeable to higher emission norms. Backed by an advanced Extra High-Pressure (XPI) fuel system, a new Electronic Control Module (ECM), and software, it’s suitable for applications like >1300 cubic feet per minute (cfm) Compressors, Dump Trucks, >80T Excavators and others.
L10 diesel engine
The L10 diesel engine with up to 454 hp (338kW) output extends heavy-duty robustness down to a 10-liter displacement. The key benefits of this engine include improved productivity over legacy mechanical engines, significantly higher fuel efficiency, and increased oil drain intervals, leading to lower downtime and maintenance costs. Moreover, the electronic control interface provides better control over the engine's response to load demand. This engine is befitting for applications like 900 cfm to 1250 cfm Compressor, 65T to 80T Excavators, and others.
B6.7H - Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine
The B6.7H hydrogen engine with up to 290 hp (216 kW) output and 1200 Nm peak torque features cutting-edge technology with diesel-like performance on thermal efficiency and power density. When paired with green hydrogen it emits zero carbon, making it a suitable product for a sustainable future. Developed on a fuel-agnostic platform, it provides customers with the flexibility to quickly adapt and offer varied fuel options.
B6.7 and B4.5
With 60+ years of providing efficient and dependable engines, Cummins will be also displaying its highest-selling B6.7 (173 to 260 hp) / (129kW to 194kW) engine, known for excellent performance, reliability, and Total Cost of Operation (TCO) in this power range, and B4.5 (121 to 173 hp)/ (90kW to 129kW) engine with the best-in-class fluid economy.
Single Module™ Aftertreatment System
Cummins is also showcasing its ultra-high efficiency aftertreatment system 9-inch (0.229 Meters) Single Module™. This innovative system is up to 70% smaller and 40% lighter compared to systems with similar architectures. It offers improved NOx conversion efficiency that removes over 99% of all particulate matter (PM) by weight and count. The product is optimized with a liquid-only, freeze-robust UL2.2 dosing system, which significantly improves reliability. 'Made in India' with over 70% localized components, this product readily adapts to a variety of applications as it is available in catalyst diameters ranging from 5.66 inches (0.144 meters) to 13 inches (0.330 meters).
The company also provides leading aftermarket support to customers through an extensive service support network of 18 Dealers and 480 touchpoints. This network offers a comprehensive range of products and services, such as Parts, New and Rebuild Engines, Repowering and Replacement solutions, Batteries, Service Solutions, Allied Products, Comprehensive Annual Maintenance Contracts, Operations and Maintenance Contracts, Extended Warranty, Engine Health Checks, Maintenance and Repair Services. With over 3,000+ company-trained engineers and technicians, this network manages service events for 5,25,000 engines on the field, serving over 2,00,000 customers across various markets in India, Nepal, and Bhutan in off-highway segments.
With the emission norm changes and introduction of Aftertreatment Systems and Controls, Cummins has established a pan-India network of Component Care Centers (CCC) equipped to provide service and spares to this new technology.
Cummins aftermarket will be showcasing the Funnel Fuel Filters, a new heavy-duty, fast-flow filter designed to separate free water and harmful contamination from gasoline, diesel, heating oil, and kerosene.
Another cutting-edge innovation on display, the ‘Fuel Sure Kit’, enables on-the-spot identification of adulterated fuel in the field, thereby saving valuable time and resources. With the Fuel Sure Kit, customers can confidently ensure that every drop of fuel is safe for the health of both the engine and (Selective Catalytic Reduction) SCR. Additionally, Consumables, Genuine Parts, and Overhaul Kits will also be on display.
