As used manufacturing machinery brokers, we’ve been talking to and working with buyers and sellers of various types of industrial equipment for over a decade. Over those years, one thing has definitely become clear: different regions of the country have their own distinct points of view about what type of machining center is best.
For example, in the Midwest, manufacturers love Milltronics Machining Centers, while on the East Coast, they’re kind of a hard sell. Why? It boils down to service and support. In a region where Milltronics Machining Centers are common, you find a pool of people that know how to operate, tool and repair them. Where the machining centers are scarce, the pool of operators and repair technicians are equally hard to come by.
The availability and pricing of parts also varies by region. This is important to keep in mind when you’re considering buying a used machining center. If you’re determined to buy a Haas machining center, for example, but Haas parts are very hard to come by in your neck of the woods, you need to accept that you may be faced with longer downtimes than you would be if you chose a machining center with more readily available parts.
As used manufacturing machinery brokers, we can help you pick the machining center that’s right for your facility. We’ll fill you in on the local service and support options, as well as helping you find a CNC module that integrates smoothly with your existing systems.
We handle a wide range of machining centers from top manufacturers, in all configurations, including 3 axis, 4 axis and 5 axis machines. There’s no request too difficult to handle – we’ve even helped a company find a 9 axis machining center when that’s what their production parameters called for!
