Machine owners and operators are increasingly looking for new innovations that deliver greater productivity and lower the total cost of ownership, but for the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), new product development takes time and investment—and can pose significant technical challenges.
OEMs that collaborate with Perkins Customer Machine Engineering Team (CMET) can lessen that load, save up to nine months from their research and development (R&D) programmes, and build more profitable and marketable machines.
Perkins CMET is on a mission to help OEMs reduce the cost, time and burden of new product development. The group of vastly experienced engine experts is dedicated to getting the maximum value and performance from Perkins engines that are installed in your machines.
Comprised of design engineers, technicians and engine installation experts, the CMET team has hundreds of years of accumulated experience optimising and fitting engines into hundreds of types of machines. Team members have faced virtually every technical engine challenge—and know how to solve them.
The team works in close collaboration with OEMs’ engineers to streamline the process of engineering new engines into your machines to help you get the best from your Perkins engine.
This highly skilled team has a proven track record in:
Equally, its services can be tailored to meet the specific needs or support any gaps in an OEM’s engineering capabilities.
Emission standards: With new emission standards such as EU Stage V in place, CMETs services are becoming more valuable than ever to construction, agricultural, industrial and materials handling OEMs, all of who are working to build a profitable portfolio of Stage V compliant machines.
Updating your machine: If you’re looking to update your machine to meet your customers’ needs then Perkins CMET can help. We can manage all or part of your engineering work to design, test and deliver a machine that meets your and your customers’ requirements.
Installing Perkins in place of a competitor engine: It can be easier from an R&D point of view to stay with an existing supplier, even though switching to a brand like Perkins could ultimately give you cost reductions and performance improvements. Our CMET team takes away that obstacle, by doing the engineering for you. We allow you to move forward with Perkins and enjoy the full benefit of our engineering services.
Whatever your reason for using CMET, OEMs who collaborate with us can save up to nine months off their development programmes and achieve an engine design and installation that fulfils all their performance needs and makes their machines more successful in the marketplace.
