Recently Sold & Upcoming Auctions

Aucto Blog | 2017-06-02 19:57:40 EST

It’s no secret that ‘buying used’ industrial equipment and machinery is becoming more popular than ‘buying new.’  Individuals and larger companies realize that ‘buying used’ means huge savings. In fact, the savings typically outweigh the minimal risks associated with purchasing used equipment. As well, a trusted marketplace can reduce most, if not all, risks associated with purchasing used equipment and machinery.

Below we’re highlighting some recent sales and upcoming auctions to keep an eye on.

Recent Sales

Many people assume that surplus or used industrial equipment, such as measurement tools, are being sold because they stopped working. This is wrong. Quality used tools are available not because they're past their prime, but because their original owners no longer had use for them. In fact, measurement and machine tools’ durability make them great resale candidates. When you're done with them, they can be resold. 

Last month, AMT hosted a machine tool auction with more than 575 lots. Here are three highlights:

1. Mitutoyo Surface Tester


2. Komet Diamond Tip Inserts


3. Dynamometer
