Used Universal Machining Center FAQs


What is a universal machining center (UMC)?

Combining multiple machining processes into a single platform, a used UMC is a highly versatile CNC machine tool that offers both flexibility and efficiency. UMC machines offer a variety of operations including milling, drilling, tapping, turning and more.

What are the advantages of UMC machining?

From versatility and increased productivity to accuracy and reduced part handling, UMC machines offer many advantages including:

  • Consolidation of Operations: Universal machining centers can perform multiple processes in a single setup which not only reduces part handling, but increases productivity.
  • Versatility: From complex milling operations to tapping, turning, and drilling operations, UMC machines can accomplish a wide range of machining tasks.
  • Space-Saving: Having the ability to perform multiple processes and operations, a single used UMC machine can replace multiple dedicated machines, which helps to save floor space.
  • Setup Time Reduction: Because UMCs can perform multiple processes in a single setup, setup time is minimized due to the elimination of parts needing to be transferred between different machines.
  • Enhanced Accuracy: Integrated machining processes ensure improved accuracy and part quality.


What types of materials can be machined with a used universal machining center?

Metals including aluminum, steel, and titanium, plastics, and composites are just a few of the materials that can be machined by UMCs.

What factors should be considered when choosing a used UMC machine?

Before purchasing a used universal machining center, you’ll want to consider the age and condition, capabilities, size and capacity, tooling, spindle power, control system, costs, and more. Many details can be found through the machine specification details, but you’ll want to always verify these factors with a used equipment dealer. Factors to consider when choosing a used universal machining center include:

Machining Capabilities:

Compare the machining requirements you need vs what range of operations you need the machine to perform. Confirm what types of machining processes the UMC machine can perform including milling, turning, grinding, drilling, and tapping. Along with the machining processes, make sure the machine offers the speed, power, and precision for the operations you require.

Machine Size and Capacity:

Verify the size of the work envelope, table size, and load capacity of the UMC machine to ensure it will fit into your space. You’ll also want to think about the size of the parts that you’ll be machining and make sure the universal machining center can accommodate those parts. When it comes to production, make sure the UMC machine’s maximum weight can handle your needs.

Spindle Power and Speed:

Spindle power determines the cutting capability and the speed range will affect the machining efficiency and ability to work with different materials so it’s important not only to confirm the spindle power and speed range, but to verify it’s suitable for the materials and cutting tools you’re going to be working with.

Control System and Software:

Consider the capabilities and ease of use of the CNC control system and software used in the machine. Look at the programming capabilities and whether it’s compatible with your existing CAD/CAM software. Find out what features are included that can help enhance productivity and efficiency including optimization capabilities, simulation, and toolpath generation.

Tooling and Tool Changers:

Make sure tooling systems for the UMC machine are both available and compatible. Look at the type and size of tool holders, tool changers, and how easy it is to implement tool changeovers. It’s important to ensure that the used universal machining center can accommodate the cutting tools that are required for your processes and that it can support efficient tool changes to help minimize downtime.

Automation and Integration Options:

Verify with a used equipment dealer the UMC’s potential for automation and integration with other systems including features such as robotic loading/unloading, pallet changers, or in-process part measurement systems. The level of automation is important as it can help increase productivity, improve overall efficiency, and reduce the need for operator intervention.

Maintenance and Service:

Request documentation regarding the maintenance history of the used universal machining center. This will not only give you a good idea on the regular maintenance, repairs or replacements done, but also can help you determine the remaining lifespan of the UMC machine, especially if great care has been taken to maintain the machine over the years. Verify typical maintenance schedules, necessary downtime, and availability of spare parts if needed.


The cost of a used universal machining center (UMC) will depend on a number of factors including age, condition, manufacturer, make, machine size, features and capabilities, and more. Consider the long-term value of the equipment including improved productivity, reduction in manual labor, and future growth potential.
