Grinders and metal lathes for all types of machining
From the mini bench lathe to a conventional precision lathe, our Metal Industry catalog regularly offers second-hand professional equipment for the machining of parts. Every month, we offer new auctions of pneumatic grinders and metal lathes for craft and industrial applications. Looking to acquire a precise model of old or used metal lathe ? Watch our auction calendar, follow the lot of your choice and set your price.
How to choose a used metal lathe ?
Respect your machining capabilities
Several parameters come into play in the choice of an old metal lathe or a second-hand digital lathe, whether it is a vertical lathe, a precise model of a lathe or even of an angle pneumatic grinder. Choose according to the time and the machining capacity. Check the motorization (asynchronous single-phase or three-phase), the number of speeds (count 6 speeds for a versatile machine), the power and the performance of the lathes. Refer to the technical sheets we publish on the lathes for sale.
Set your own price, without constraints
By participating in an auction for used industrial equipment, you have the advantage of controlling your investment. On the Auctelia website, we ensure full transparency : all interested buyers have the same information to bid. You immediately set the price you want. No more time wasted negotiating.
Make your purchase via a third party account
If you are considering buying a used pneumatic grinder or old-fashioned metal lathe, go through a trusted intermediary. With Auctelia, your payment is not sent directly to the seller, but is made to a third party account. An additional security until the retrieval of the equipment.
Conventional metal lathes : vertical or horizontal lathe
Conventional metal lathes are the most versatile and popular machining centers in our auctions. We have a wide selection of brands and references, such as the Leprogrès, Emco and Acimex lathes.
There are different types of old or used metal lathes for heavy turning, including the parallel lathe which usually has a horizontal axis, and the vertical lathe used to machine very heavy and large diameter pieces (up to 10 meters). Good to know : some models of metal lathes offer a variable speed that ensures a longer lifetime of the equipment.
Pneumatic grinders, mini lathes and bench grinders
Second-hand mini lathes, pneumatic drums and grinders are successful at auction. We regularly sell various models of the famous Metabo bench grinder, as well as the Myford, Makita or Bosch grinders.
The bench grinders and pneumatic grinders allow maximum material removal with minimum effort. Equipped with a self-balancing device that reduces vibration, these types of mini lathes are preferred for roughing operations or for rectification grinding. The pneumatic angle grinder, for example, is ideal for smoothing metal joints after welding or for removing paint. The bench grinder or the polishing drum is used for the work of precious metals and plastics.
Automatic lathes and CNC lathes
Our range of second-hand automatic lathes and CNC digital lathes are packed with solid machine tools for the production of complex and ultra-precise parts. In our auction catalog you will find models of digital lathes from all major brands such as Emco metal lathes.
The semi-automatic and automatic digital lathe is specially designed to turn parts between centers. Usually multispindle, an automatic digital lathe is highly productive : it offers the possibility to work a large number of parallel manufacturing steps. In addition to turning operations, some CNC type digital lathes also allow milling. They are equipped with a numerical control that pilots the machine. The control manages the rotation, the choice and the movements of the cutting tools.
