Cecamasa increases its selection of used bridge milling machines

ZAYER KPCU 5000 AR BRIDGE MILLING MACHINE

Acquisition of a ZAYER KPCU 5000 AR bridge milling machine

From CECAMASA we have begun the fall season with great news. We expand our selection of second-hand industrial machinery with the addition to our inventory of a ZAYER KPCU 5000 AR bridge milling machine (HIGH PERFORMANCE). This month of October our team of technicians are going to head for the Basque Country to proceed with the dismantling of that ZAYER bridge milling machine, acquired in one of the most important sheet metal forming industries in the area. After the dismantling, the milling machine will be moved to our facilities in Parets del Vallés (Barcelona).

This is a milling machine with a travel in X-axis of 5000 mm, a travel of 4000 mm in Y-axis and a travel of 1100mm in Z-axis and a distance between columns of 3030 mm. This used bridge milling machine has a pick-up head, direct output head, a "L" head and a universal automatic head with 0.001º acuracy. It is also equipped with a FIDIA C20-S control and tool changer of 30 units.

Find below a video of that ZAYER KPCU 5000 AR bridge milling machine, so you will see for yourselves its capacities:

CECAMASA closes the sale and installs a SORALUCE milling machine in Barcelona

SORALUCE TR-35 MILLING MACHINE

During last month of September the team of technicians of CECAMASA has been actively working in the installation and commissioning of a bed type milling machine sold to a company in the province of Barcelona. We are specifically talking about a bed type milling machine SORALUCE TR-35 equipped with HEIDENHAIN control which enlarges the industrial machinery stock list of our customer. A company that provides components to a long list of die manufacturing companies for the automotive industry. As many of you already know, CECAMASA has a wide selection of second hand milling machines in its warehouses located in the municipality of Parets del Vallés (Barcelona). We always try to have in this selection models of brands such as SORALUCE, ZAYER or CORREA. All of them milling machines brands of great prestige, both nationally and internationally, which have always managed to meet fully the expectations of our customers and provide them with solutions to their production needs, no matter how demanding they were.

According to our regular way to proceed, the second hand SORALUCE TR-35 bed type milling machine was previously checked thoroughly by our experts in milling machines before its sale. When CECAMASA purchases a used milling machine, our team of technicians dismantles and checks thoroughly in order to detect if some components need to be repaired or replaced. The geometry of the machine is verified to know its degree of accuracy. We make every effort to ensure that the second hand milling machine presents a good performance and a quality very close to brand new one machine. In this specific case, the bed type milling machine SORALUCE TR-35 was completely checked, the original colors of the manufacturer have been preserved. The painting has not been damaged due to good use and maintenance made by the original customer who bought the machine when it was new. This used milling machine is equipped with automatic head 2.5º-2.5º, chip conveyor and ATC charger 30 tools. It also has a front protection formed by two wide opening doors that enable the operator loading the piece on the table of the milling machine

The second-hand machinery of CECAMASA catches the public's interest in FITMAQ 2019

From CECAMASA we value our participation in the International Fair of Used Machinery and Equipment (FITMAQ), held from 4 to 6 June at the Bilbao Exhibition Center, very highly. We attended the trade fair with a 200 square meter booth where we exhibited two machines from our stock of second-hand machinery: a bed type milling machine of the reputed brand ZAYER, model 30 KF-5000 and a DOOSAN PUMA MX 2500 LST multitasking cnc lathe, of which we will talk in further detail later.

Trade shows offer without any kind of doubt an excellent opportunity for networking and what is even more important, they allow us to gather firsthand information of the needs of the market and, in that sense, this edition of the FITMAQ 2019 has not been an exception. This event has allowed us to make new contacts, at national and international level, meet again our customers and make new deals.

We are very pleased to note that the second-hand industrial machines that we showed at the fair have caught the general interest of the public: from the student of machining and the retired man impressed by the technological improvements achieved to the managers and workers who appreciate the performance of a good machine. There is no greater reward than to see that all the effort made has been worthy.

On the occasion of this industrial fair, we have presented our new catalog where you can find a variety of new and second-hand industrial machinery. See machines physically is one of the added values of ​​FITMAQ, and in this edition lathes, milling machines, machining centers, grinders, turning centers, bending and shearing machines could have been seen.

Information on the most relevant products in FITMAQ 2019

In CECAMASA we have a wide range of models of milling machines and CNC lathes. As above-mentioned, in 2019 FITMAQ we have shown the multitasking lathe DOOSAN PUMA MX 2500 LST and the ZAYER milling machine 30 KF-5000, the latter machine was the star of the booth because of its performance and its size, as it has a bed of five meters - being the largest machine exhibited at the fair.

Be advised that all our second-hand milling machines have been thoroughly checked by a highly qualified team in order to be delivered to the customer in perfect condition. In CECAMASA we bet on well-known brands such as ZAYER milling machines, SORALUCE milling machines and NICOLAS CORREA milling machines.

Second-hand ZAYER 30KF-5000 milling machine

The ZAYER 30 KF-5000 milling machine is particularly known for its travels - 4710 mm in X-axis, 2013 mm in Y-axis and 1508 mm in Z-axis - and its 45º automatic head with 0.001º accuracy in the two bodies and spindle rotation simultaneously. In spite of being a bed type milling machine, it provides traverses like a traveling column milling machine with the benefit that a bed type milling machine does not require the foundation of a traveling column milling machine.

Second-hand multitasking DOOSAN PUMA MX 2500 LST cnc lathe

The multitasking DOOSAN PUMA MX 2500 LST lathe exhibited as well at our booth has a high technological component, it is a multitasking lathe of 9 axes fully equipped with hydraulic chuck, spindle and subspindle, boring head, tool changer of 40n units, turret with motorised tool, chip conveyor and FANUC 18i-TB control. The technical features of this second-hand CNC lathe make it ideal for finishing working pieces very quickly.

In addition to the industrial machinery shown at FITMAQ 2019, we have other types and models of used machines in our facilities in Parets del Vallès (Barcelona). Do you want to get a copy of our new catalog of second-hand machinery with detailed information? Please contact us or download it here.
