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.
Here’s a look at some of the used metalworking equipment sold in June:
At a $100,000 high bid, this Makino CNC VMC sold at the highest amount across all three of June’s metalworking and manufacturing equipment auctions.
In most cases, milling machines and machining centers are synonymous terms for the same machine. This lot – a Trak CNC VMC – sold for $27,000.
VMCs remain a staple at most machine shops, large or small. In fact, they account for three of the top five metalworking and manufacturing equipment sales this month. The high bid for this Fadal VMC’s was $26,500.
Automatic surface grinders provide enhanced productivity with intuitive, easy-to-use operator controls. This Nicco automatic surface grinder sold for $13,750.
Manufacturers use laser markers to engrave or cut an object or material. This Panasonic last maker sold for $13,500.
