COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins is now remanufacturing ISX engines on a new state-of-the-art production line at the San Luis Potosi, Mexico, plant.
“The Cummins ReCon ISX is an extremely important product for Cummins and our loyal customer base, said Allen Pierce, general manager of parts and service manufacturing. We must provide the very best in quality and value, which is why we’ve handpicked people at all levels including several from the original equipment plant in Jamestown, N.Y. and brought them here for the duration of the implementation process. All the latest quality tools and Six Sigma processes are being used to ensure our best ReCon engine launch to date.”
Plant manager Aaron Borunda added, “The new ReCon ISX line represents a major investment in the talented and dedicated employees at our facility. We have sufficient capability to meet all forecasted orders, plus we have the expansion capacity available to meet future growth needs.”
Unlike rebuilt or reconditioned engines, every ReCon ISX is completely disassembled, thoroughly inspected, remanufactured and tested on the production line to verify that it meets factory specifications, the company says. Materials and components are upgraded to the latest technology using only genuine Cummins new or ReCon parts, which include a one-piece forged-steel piston, a new one-piece head gasket for better coolant control, a flat-top induction-hardened cylinder liner for better cylinder sealing, and an improved piston pin and lubrication for longer life-to-overhaul.
Cummins is offering a two-year/200,000-mile (321,869 km) warranty, twice as long as previous standards. Extended coverage plans are also available. Current production is limited to engines produced between 1998 and October 2002.
