Cummins India participated and showcased its innovative, dependable and futuristic product range at the 9th edition of International Mining Equipment, Minerals and Metals Exhibition (IME). IME is  a prestigious biennial international exhibition which witnesses participation from leading industry stalwarts. The IME 2022 exhibition was scheduled from 04 – 07 April 2022 at Eco Park, Rajarhat, Kolkata, India concurrent to a very  high-level 9th Asian Mining Congress organized by the oldest Institute of its kind in Asia-MGMI.

The company demonstrated its latest QSK23 Tier 4 and QSK60 engines, which are designed to offer better uptime and productivity, fuel economy, lower emissions, and lower operating costs, and their reliability and durability is tested and proven in mines worldwide, with no loss of power or torque. The  inline, six-cylinder configuration offers a narrower, shorter installation, easier access, and the benefit of fewer parts, which makes these engines  inherently more robust and reliable built to drive down production costs and meet sustainability goals at the same time.

Cummins understands the importance of uninterrupted power for all, thus it showcased its most technologically advanced power generation solutions, ranging from 7.5kVA to 3750kVA and catering to all major market segments. The company displayed its advanced 62.5kVA genset, which is used in the infrastructure and construction industries. This Genset has the best power density in its class, ensuring maximum power with minimum footprint. The new gensets are engineered and designed to reduce downtime while increasing the total cost of ownership in an efficient and innovative manner.
