When compared to other CNC manufacturers in the world, Haas Automation Inc. offers more standard features, high tech innovations and rock solid engineering. Haas is the western world's largest machine builder that manufactures a wide array of CNC vertical machining centers, CNC lathes, horizontal machining centers and rotary products.

Haas machines are built to deliver higher accuracy and are considered more reliable and durable than other machine tools on the market today. If you are in need of a CNC machine but do not wish to pay top dollar for a new machine, consider purchasing a used Haas machine. MMI offers a wide range of Haas models, including the the VF series, including Haas VF-1, Haas VF-2, Haas  VF-3, Haas VF-4, Haas VF-5, Haas VF-6, Haas  VF-7 and VFE models. Additionally, we often carry SL-30T, SL-20T, SL-10, TL-3, HL-4, ST-10, EC-630, MDC-500, Haas Mini MIll models and more. Our growing inventory changes daily. We host a minimum of two auctions each month and each has up to 30 machines available. If you are unable to participate in our auctions, MMI consistently carries a wide variety of Haas inventory in addition to other top CNC brands.

Cost Effectiveness 

Used machinery offers a major cost advantage over buying machinery new. CNC machines are not always easy for a typical small to mid-size business to afford. When you purchase a second-hand machine, you will receive its provided benefits without taking a large chunk out of your budget. Buying a used Haas CNC machine is easy with MMI Auction's transparent auction process and valued expert assistance. As a used machine has been in production, it is and any defects have been identified and often repaired (MMI requires condition reports that identify any known issues and services performed from the seller).

Many don't necessarily realize that a second-hand CNC machine can deliver the same top performance and reliability as a new one. Depending on the size and production capacity of the machine you need, buying it used can generate a five-figure or six-figure savings since used CNC equipment is typically discounted at more than 30 percent off the original price.

Brand Is Important

As with other types of products, all brands of machinery are not equal. Brands and models that weren't in high demand when they were first released can be purchased used at steep discounts. However, it will prove challenging to find manuals, training materials or professionals who know how to repair these machines. A well-known brand like Haas on the other hand is much easier to locate replacement parts and training materials for these machines.
