COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins says it’s now remanufacturing ISX engines on a new state-of-the-art production line at its San Luis Potosi, Mexico, plant, according to Allen Pierce, general manager of Parts and Service Manufacturing.
“The Cummins ReCon ISX is an extremely important product for Cummins and our loyal customer base,” Pierce said. “We must provide the very best in quality and value, which is why we’ve handpicked people at all levels … 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.”
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.
A 2-year/200,000-mile warranty, twice as long as previous standards, shows the company’s confidence in the ReCon ISX engine, Cummins says. Extended coverage plans are also available.
Current production is limited to engines produced between 1998 and October 2002.
