What Are The Factors To Consider When Buying a Used Machining Center

used equipment

Buying a used machining center is a complex task. Machining centers are complicated machines, capable of boosting a manufacturer’s capacity exponentially.  This can allow a company to take on much larger orders than they were previously capable of – great for organizational growth and overall profitability.

To make this happen, it’s essential to make wise choices when purchasing a used machining center. Condition is a huge concern. The way a machining center has been used and maintained has a direct impact on how satisfied you’ll be with it.

In the marketplace right now, there are well-kept, high quality machining centers capable of delivering reliable service for twenty years or longer, while other machines that were worked as hard as they possibly could be with minimal upkeep will be ready for the scrap yard in less than five years. Your challenge as a buyer is determining which machine is which.

When you work with GreasyMachines, you don’t have to take on this challenge alone.  As used manufacturing machinery brokers, we know what questions to ask about the machining centers that are available for sale. We will provide you with the most accurate information available, including chip to chip time, spindle RPM, type of coolant system and CNC module data. Whenever possible, we review maintenance records and see the machine under operation.  Before you buy, we’ll arrange to have the machining center tooled and samples run so you can be absolutely confident in your purchasing decision.

Why settle for a machining center that’s only got a few good years left on it when you can get a better machining center that’s been well-maintained and ready to work for decades for the same price?
