Although they were still getting the job done, Caterpillar Lafayette’s 20 to 25-year-old JTEKT Machinery machining centers were showing their age and needed to be upgraded. A thorough, competitive analysis and running production numbers confirmed that the total cost of ownership on JTEKT Machinery equipment was far lower than alternative options. CAT is known for getting the life out of their equipment—and JTEKT Machinery's rugged, robust design fit the bill. Like CAT, JTEKT Machinery maintains a competitive advantage by delivering higher power density, lower total cost of ownership and superior product support. JTEKT Machinery knows production can’t wait for long shipping and installation periods—that’s why they have their machines in stock and ready to hit the ground running.
CAT upgraded to JTEKT Machinery's state-of-the-art horizontal machining centers for EFFICIENT
PRODUCTION and HIGH-PRECISION MACHINING. JTEKT Machinery horizontal machining centers
provide industry-leading speed, rigidity and accuracy to reach peak efficiency and
joined the ranks of other reliable JTEKT Machinery machines.

25% INCREASE IN PRODUCTION
Running the new machines with the same program, producing the same parts CAT was able to increase production by 25%—covering their increase in value and paying for the machine upgrade.
37% INCREASED CAPACITY
Post-installation, CAT was immediately running 37% faster cycle times. Being able to do more in less time eliminated employee overtime needed to reach production requirements.
3 MORE JTEKT MACHINERY MACHINES ON ORDER
CAT immediately ordered 3 larger machines to run connecting rods for diesel engines. The upgrade is slated to more than double production.
1 NEW FACILITY PARTNERSHIP
CAT’s significant ROI has now enhanced JTEKT Machinery's reputation in the Lafayette facility. As machines reach capacity or age limit, they will look to JTEKT Machinery for the solution.
