New JCB 448 engines for OEMs
JCB Power Systems unveil Stage V-compliant engine range for mobile and static off-highway applications
JCB Power Systems have launched a brand-new range of EU Stage V-compliant engines to power OEM equipment. Designed for off-highway applications in both static and mobile industrial equipment and generators, the new engines are available in four power nodes spanning 81kW (108hp) to 129kW (173hp) and boasting peak torque outputs from 516Nm to 690Nm.
Building on the highly successful transition to Stage V power in the <56kW range with the 430 engine, the new higher-powered 448 models feature the same highly efficient performance with a simple, flexible after-treatment solution and common customer connection points to allow easy integration with a wide range of OEM equipment designs.
The engine packages have been engineered to be as small as possible whilst featuring engine-mounted after-treatment – comprising a diesel oxidation catalyst with a selective catalytic reduction urea injection system for NOx reduction as standard ¬– to simplify engine integration. Exhaust after-treatment can also be supplied loose for bespoke installations where height limitations call for an alternative to the engine-mounted arrangement.
Daniel Jackson, OEM engine sales and applications manager with JCB Power Systems, said: ‘Driven by legislation, the market for innovative and customer-focused solutions is constantly evolving, and with the introduction of these latest additions to the JCB Power Systems range, we and our customers will remain at the forefront of developments.
‘Not only have we introduced a high-performance, ultra-efficient and low-emissions engine solution, but we have done so in a way that makes life much easier for our OEM customers, making integration with their equipment as seamless as possible and providing full support before, during and after manufacture.’
The development of these Stage V 448 units will allow JCB Power Systems to continue to support new and existing customers in off-highway applications across the current Stage V markets and then further territories as emissions legislation evolves.
The versatility of the engines makes them suitable for a wide range of uses, from the propulsion of off-highway equipment to the mechanical power behind a variety of stationary equipment. Thanks to their high power density, they are well suited to heavy-duty environments, with their robust design capable of withstanding the environmental factors often seen in these applications, such as dust and vibration.
Offered as ‘plug and play’ options, all the 448 engines feature complete wiring solutions, mounted after-treatment and induction systems, and three connections between the engine and DEF tank module. JCB Power Systems can also offer an additional level of integration flexibility with additional components, engine assembly dress modifications and specialist installation design and testing opening up further possibilities for customers.
For sectors that demand even more complex installations, operational flexibility and robust engineered solutions, this can extend to a full powertrain solution with ongoing support. Going beyond the typical component sales model, this offering is further bolstered by the JCB Drivetrain division, with its range of axles and transmissions completing a full OEM solution for mobile applications.
