Multiple Site Auction Of Sheet Metal Cutting, Punching, Nibbling, Robotic Spot/Mig Welding & Powder Coating Equipment Now Live

Our latest auction – A multiple site online auction of machinery used in the sheet metal processing industries (but the powder coating line could be used in other sectors) – is now live.

With equipment from OEMs Trumpf, Finn-Power, Motoman, ABB & Nordson this is an auction which will be of interest to anyone who :

  • Cuts
  • Punches
  • Nibbles
  • Spot Welds
  • Mig Welds
  • Uses Robots for Parts Handling Operations
  • Powder Coats

May we ask you the following?

  1. Are you fed up of sub contracting and therefore losing control on any/all of the above operations?
  2. Do you want to bring any/all of these processes in-house?
  3. Do you want more automation?
  4. Do you want better reproducability/repeatability (R&R)

And finally, can you really afford not to answer YES to any or all of these four questions?

This is unquestionably an auction that will appeal to those companies who may have a capital-expenditure program in-place right now, those who are about to put one together and  those who need to move quickly to bring the right assets to their business right now and avoid the long lead times involved in buying new (not to mention the expense).

As this is a multiple site auction, the location of each asset will be given at the end of the sale particulars of each lot.

Please read and understand the collection details relating to the individual lots as this will advise what assistance will be given with the mechanical, electrical, gas and water disconnections, chemical removals in the case of the powder coating line and what the loading responsibilites will be for the buyers.
