Cummins Announces Technologies Available to Customers That Can Help Prevent Downtime and Deliver Significant Cost Savings


COLUMBUS, Ind.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) announced today that the company is offering
its Data-Enabled
Mining Solution (DEMS)
plus Fleetguard Filtration Intelligence
Technology (FleetguardFIT™) free-of-charge for 12 months on all new
QSK50, QSK60 and QSK78 Tier 4 solutions operating in the US and Canada.
Through this program, Cummins will deliver its most advanced and
connected diesel engines to the mining industry.

DEMS has proven to be a significant benefit to customers. For one mining
customer, Cummins was able to reduce annual unplanned downtime costs by
over $110,000 USD per truck, and the early issue detection logic used in
DEMS prevented progressive damage expenses by another $100,000 per truck
per year.

“Our digital solutions are another step in Cummins’ commitment to
deliver solutions that help miners lower their cost of production,” said
Zach Gillen, Executive Director – Mining, Cummins Inc. “We have invested
more than a half billion dollars developing a full line-up of Tier 4
industrial solutions and we are thrilled with the performance. Miners
are relentlessly pursing lower cost per ton, and we are confident DEMS
and FleetguardFIT™ will deliver significant value, which is why we are
making this available at no cost now. Cummins is committed to delivering
new technologies that help our customers be as successful as possible.”

By combining advanced hardware sensors and expert analytics, DEMS allows
Cummins to monitor engine system performance and deliver accurate,
real-time operating information. In addition, experts at Cummins Care
facilities around the globe analyze the real-time data and provide
proactive recommendations that enhance equipment productivity and reduce
downtime and maintenance costs.

Miners taking advantage of this program will also have visibility into
filter life and oil quality. FleetguardFIT™ is a first-of-kind solution
designed for Fleetguard filters. It includes pressure sensors for fuel,
lube, air filters and a fluid property sensor that monitors oil quality.
Intelligent sensing and advanced data analytics allow Cummins experts to
offer site-specific recommendations to optimize filter and oil service
