Cummins Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tom Linebarger and Vice President and Chief Technical Officer John Wall visited the Combustion Research Facility on Thursday, May 28. Kamlesh Patel briefed the visitors on Sandia’s microfluidic technology and Terry Johnson provided an update on the free piston alternator project. Linebarger and Wall also visited Jeff Koplow’s Sandia Cooler and Twistact Laboratory and John Dec’s Low-Temperature Gasoline Combustion (LTGC) Engine Laboratory.

“Sandia’s Combustion Research team has had a strong working relationship with Cummins over the years,” said CRF senior manager Art Pontau. “This executive visit gave the Cummins visitors the opportunity to see some of our latest forward-looking work and explore broadening our partnership in new technical areas.”
