CHALLENGE

C.G. Bretting Manufacturing and JTEKT Machinery have a lot in common-namely a shared approach to manufacturing. After earning their name as a manufacturer of paper-converting machines, C.G. Bretting Manufacturing expanded their contract manufacturing business in 2001 and has had a partnership with JTEKT Machinery for over 30 years. Recently, C.G. Bretting needed to replace some large machines to manufacture base plates and side frames for the OEM business, but had limited space on the shop floor. Upon reviewing multiple machine options, they determined JTEKT Machinery had the solution that would best suit their needs.

GOALS

• Compact machine that can produce high-quality large parts, up to 315" x 118" x 56" & 132,000 lbs.
• Versatility to machine massive parts with less setups.
• Quick installation and reliable service.

SOLUTION

C.G. Bretting found what they needed in two JTEKT Machinery Gantry Mill machines. The gantry mills have a smaller footprint than a bridge mill with the same power and precision expected from JTEKT Machinery. The MG Series provides stability and durability required in machining large workpieces and features multiple attachment heads, convenient programming macros and tool management for five-sided machining, rack and pinion drive system, and a powerful geared-head spindle.

OUTCOME

MINIMAL DOWNTIME
Service and installation were important to C.G. Bretting to minimize the amount of downtime in upgrading the machines. Five weeks and they were up and running.

INCREASED CAPABILITY
The versatility of the new JTEKT Machinery machines expanded the capability profile for C.G. Bretting's OEM and contract business. 

HIGHER EFFICIENCY
A right-angle head attachment and 3+2 multi-head attachment allowed for a range of parts to be produced with far less setup. 

UNMATCHED SPEED AND ACCURACY
With the new gantry mills, C.G. Bretting was able to get
parts out faster with a higher level of quality and accuracy.
