Buy & Sell Used Metalworking Equipment

Aucto Blog | 2017-06-30 17:40:31 EST


Metalworking equipment is one of the fastest growing auction categories on Aucto. Equipment in this category includes: CNC lathes, mills, machining centers, EDM and presses.

Since metalworking tools are required for most machining and manufacturing operations and projects, many machine shops – small and large – turn to used equipment marketplaces, such as Aucto, for better value.

Used Metalworking Machinery


In June, Aucto's platform was used to host three used metalworking equipment auctions that included assets previously owned by popular manufacturers such as Excel Mold & Engineering, Dominion Plastics LLC and MetalTek. In fact, Practical Machinist – the world’s largest metalworking forum – featured an article about our metalworking category’s growth.
