Perkins at bauma Munich 2019Published 25/3, 2019 at 14:32
Perkins is showcasing its complete EU Stage V engine range, future technologies, aftermarket services and digital solutions at bauma Munich. Choice and customer collaboration, and the providing of the right solutions for OEMs, will be central themes on the stand as Perkins exhibits its widest choice of engines for today and for the future.
Five engines meeting the latest Stage V emissions standards will highlight the Perkins 0.5l to 18l (4-597 kW / 5) engine range. Perkins will complement its range of off highway diesel engines by showcasing a further 3 engines highlighting future hybrid offerings. These new engines will be shown for the first time on the Perkins stand in hall A4, stand 336. “Perkins offers an industry leading choice of world class engines and options, so our OEM customers can be confident that we have the right engine for their market and application,” said Steve Ferguson, Perkins president. “Whether it is our latest generation of Stage V engines, which meet the most stringent emission standards or a hybrid product, our engineering teams work side by side with those of the OEM to develop a bespoke solution.”
Perkins has significantly invested in hybrid engine research and development projects, and at bauma 2019 will be featuring a range of technologies that will add real value to OEMs as they design the next generation of off highway machines. Matt Coleman, product director said: “For construction machines, it’s not sufficient to simply carry over hybrid or electric technologies from other sectors such as truck, automobiles or marine. The duty cycles, operating conditions and packaging constraints for off highway machines drive the need for specific configurations that are highly customised to the individual application. Through our close technical collaboration with our OEMs, and using a huge amount of real field data, we can develop solutions which are truly relevant to the construction sector. By collaborating with Perkins, OEMs can accelerate their research and development programmes, saving themselves time and money.”
EU Stage V
Perkins will display a range of engines that meet the new Stage V emission standards. Perkins Stage V technologies include common rail fuel systems, selective catalytic reduction (SCR), diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC) and diesel particulate filters (DPF). To highlight the compact and flexible nature of its offering, the high power after treatment system used on the 1200 Series will feature on the stand.
