You MAKE Machined Parts. We Buy And Sell The Equipment That Makes The Parts.
As a growing CNC machining business, you have the opportunity to quote on jobs every week that may not be exactly in your wheelhouse, but it’s no fun passing these up. Many growing shops would like to learn more and take on more challenging jobs for more profit, but just don’t have the equipment or expertise to do so. Without the right CNC equipment, you simply cannot competitively quote certain jobs. So, where do you turn when you get that awesome shot at a new job and your CNC’s are at full capacity? You don’t necessarily have to take a risk and buy new equipment. Why get locked into a lease when you’re not yet sure of how long you’ll have that job? Everyday shops across the country are upgrading their CNC’s in response to growing demand, changes in product mix, and even changes in life that result in a company deciding to close its doors. These used CNC’s are a golden opportunity for you to save time and money while improving your profitability.
5 Reasons To Buy A Used CNC:
- Make more complex parts with upgraded CNC tech
- Increase your shop’s production capacity
- Reduce existing production cycle times
- Increase opportunities to quote and win new jobs
- Optimize shop floor space more effectively
Make more complex parts with upgraded CNC tech
A great reason to purchase a used CNC is to increase profits by becoming specialized. When you are able to cut difficult materials, like titanium or provide super tight tolerances or make very small or very large parts or make complex parts straight off your CNC machine, you add a lot of value. Customers pay top dollar for specialty machining, and you can grow this business with your sales and marketing efforts. It pays to pay attention to opportunities to grow your specialty in a particular kind of CNC machining. Look for used CNC’s that are particularly good in a particular niche, and you can be cranking out the dollars as your crank out parts.
Increase your shop’s production capacity
When it’s time to expand, your company may want to take a look at what you’re doing best right now. If you have ten A16 Citizen Swiss machines with Edge magazine-type bar feeders, and they’re all running at full capacity, it may make sense to just buy another one. This way your tooling can be used, and you probably don’t need another operator. No matter what equipment is popular on your shop floor, there’s a good chance that something similar (or even exactly the same) is available on CNCMachines.Net for a good price. And if we don’t have a specific machine you want listed on our website, just let us know. We’ll contact you as soon as a used CNC that matches your description becomes available. Getting operational with familiar equipment is the easiest way to start making more parts.
Reduce existing production cycle times
Sometimes the next logical step for a CNC machine shop is to add a newer CNC machine that is more suited for a particular job. For example, your 3-axis vertical machining centers may be producing parts just fine, and your operators may not see a need for a change, but you know 5-axis is your future. As part designs and material grow more challenging, and order quantities drop, the rationale for moving to 5-axis gets stronger. 5-axis CNC’s cut down on lead times, reduce setup, have less fixturing, shorter cycle times, and better surface finishes than most other types of CNC’s. They also have longer tool life. Since 5-axis CNC’s have been around now for a while, it’s possible to learn the technology on a used CNC with great results. Learn more about 5-Axis lathe options and see if one should be in your future sooner than later.
It doesn’t matter if it’s lathe parts or milled parts, buying newer equipment with either more versatility or more specificity to the kind of work that your company machines best is a great opportunity to reduce setup times and costs. It pays to start the conversation with us, since you never know when the perfect machine could become available. Once we know what you’d like to do, we’ll keep track of what becomes available and give our customer-partners first dibs on used CNC’s that become available.
Increase opportunities to quote and win new jobs
Sometimes great customers give us new opportunities that push our comfort zones. When that print comes over, but you know that you can’t be as competitive with your current CNC’s as you could be on something different, it’s time to check out buying a used CNC machine that’s a better fit. It could be the quantities are higher than you’ve handled in the past, or the cycle time that someone else can provide will be clearly shorter than what you can do. Get a quote on an ideal CNC for this application and watch your business grow. You’ll be surprised how quickly you can get answers from us.
Optimize shop floor space more effectively
Sometimes the limiting factor for a machine shop is space. Square footage costs money, and if you’ve been in the same location for a long time, you may find yourself bumping into equipment everywhere you go. This not only creates a less-than-pleasant work environment, it presents safety hazards. Moving your company many not be in your best interest yet, so you may consider upgrading your CNC’s for equipment that is smaller and more productive. CNC experts such as ours can help you both sell your old equipment and replace it with more space-efficient CNC’s. You can all sell your cnc machines to us, we give you a fast offer, and quick pick up. To learn more go to the sell my cnc machine page.
Who We Are: CNC Machines
CNC Machines LLC was founded in 2014 by Curt Doherty. Curt has been helping manufacturers since 2006 with all of their shop’s equipment needs. He founded his company based on his desire to help small to mid-size American manufacturers buy and sell used CNC equipment so they can be globally competitive. Curt is passionate about building a company with a positive culture for the very best customer experience. American manufacturers are making a difference by making things, and they need affordable equipment.
CNC’s have transformed manufacturing in the last thirty years. There are hundreds of CNC manufacturers making a wide range of equipment to make parts from extremely tiny and precise to airplane parts. Year after year the makes and models change, and features are added to make machines more durable and flexible than previous years. Some manufacturers, like Hitachi-Seiki USA went out of business in the 2001/2002 recession, but their equipment is still making parts. Other manufacturers of CNC’s like Hurco have been around for a long time (since 1968) and in the last 12 years have focused on making 5-axis CNC machining easy. For those looking for horizontal machining centers, Makino has been making high-accuracy, high-production 4-axis machines for many years, and has carried their model numbers from as far back as 2006 to 2018. No matter what your reason or experience with specific CNC machine companies, we can help.
