IISE Cummins Power Generation Tour
Join IISE Twin Cities for a tour of the Cummins Power Generation facility on Wednesday, October 18th!
Cummins is a world leader in the design and manufacture of engines and power generation equipment, including PowerCommand standby and prime power systems. Cummins provides single-source warranty, planned maintenance, and round-the-clock emergency service 24 hours a day, seven days a week including back-up power rental through our network of distributors. Cummins has unique expertise in that all aspects of generator set design, manufacture and service have been brought together in one company. All the major components - the engine, alternator and control systems - are manufactured by Cummins. This integral approach means each element of a generating set is matched to work in harmony from the start.
At the Fridley, MN manufacturing facility, you will see the manufacturing process to produce generators. Cummins will describe how they transformed production lines that had been the same for over 20 years as well as explain the complexities of the value streams within the facility and the throughput these production lines have. Please arrive at the facility by 2pm. The tour will go from about 2-3pm. Then, there will be a short presentation followed by Q&A from 3-4pm. Following the tour, there will be an optional social hour nearby, location TBD. All are welcome to join the social hour even if you cannot make the tour.
**Cost of the event is free for IISE Members and $15 for non-IISE Members. You may pay with cash upon arrival at the event or via PayPal to IISE.TwinCities@gmail.com.
We look forward to seeing you there!
