PERKINS INDUSTRIAL ENGINES
All about the Perkins brand
With a history stretching back more than 85 years, Perkins is one of the world’s leading providers of diesel and gas engines. We aim to set standards of engineering excellence, providing the most comprehensive range of innovative and reliable power solutions, tailored to meet the precise requirements of our customers.
The Perkins mission statement sets out our business philosophy: ‘We create value for our customers and distributors by providing competitive and dependable industrial power solutions.’
An unbeatable range of power solutions
We have always focused exclusively on the design and manufacture of engines. Now, our range is aimed at the agricultural, construction, industrial, power generation and material handling sectors in the 4-2000 kW (5-2800 hp) range.
“Our commitment to the highest standards in the products we make and the service we offer is your guarantee of satisfaction – and always has been.”
The Perkins industrial engine product range extends from the compact 400 Series engine, producing 50 kW (67 hp), to the 1200 Series, producing up to 240 kW (320 hp) and offering enhanced productivity and low cost of ownership.
Beyond that, the Perkins electric power and gas engine range includes further models up to the 4000 Series, which produce up to 2500 kVA (2000 kWe).
Across the ranges, there are Perkins engines designed to meet all emission standards and performance requirements in more than 800 applications. All of them can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of individual equipment manufacturers.
Precisely tailored technology means applications you can depend on.
The same quality standards – wherever we build your engine
Wherever your engine comes off the production line – from Peterborough to Hosur or Wuxi to Seguin – it will meet exactly the same high standards of performance, reliability and durability. Our quality won’t deviate, because we follow the same stringent processes and use the same quality components wherever we build your engine.
With manufacturing sites in China, India, North America, South America and the UK, Perkins is a truly global business.
Some Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) may believe that a Perkins engine produced in North America is superior to one tooled in Asia or assembled in South America. But it’s a misconception. Whichever manufacturing facility builds your engine, the same consistent global quality is 100 percent assured.
Here’s how we achieve it:
Standardised working – every operator, regardless of where they are in the world, follows a consistent two-month training programme before they work on the production line. When they get there, they follow the same Caterpillar Production System (CPS) used in all Perkins manufacturing facilities, ensuring the same efficient processes, tested and validated components, and stringent quality controls are implemented at every facility
Consistent quality standards – we follow a methodology called BIQ (built-in quality). This is a process where we strive to catch every problem in the process, find its root cause and ensure it never happens again
Regional suppliers – whether they’re international names or local companies, all work to the same levels of excellence. All parts are approved in accordance with Perkins global advanced product quality planning process
Rigorous testing – state-of-the-art test systems, material labs and computer-aided design capabilities ensure that components can be validated and tested to Perkins global high standards
No-fault-forward mentality – we use in-process verification during the build of an engine. That means that operators follow clear, detailed instructions about what they have to do and the checks they need to follow. The engine cannot progress through the process until every detail is complete
Intelligent tooling – this helps us build with more precision when needed. So when we tighten a bolt, we use intelligent tooling to control the speed and torque, and even the angle that the bolt turns to. This is then checked within the software of the tool. If it goes out of parameters, we lock the engine in station and don’t allow it proceed until it’s been rectified
Automated measurement – offering variety to our customers is one of the Perkins key strengths, but it can provide challenges in manufacturing. Certain components can look very similar – they might only have a 2mm difference, but otherwise be identical. In those instances, we use various methods of measurement control after the operator fits the component. If it detects an error, we’ll stop the engine from progressing until it’s corrected
Some OEMs may think that engine quality depends on manufacturing location, but it’s a false perception. We combine global processes with local execution to ensure that every engine is built to the same specification and quality standards, and all perform with the same level of performance, reliability and durability.
