In Japan, we recently purchased six Weingarten die casting machines, including three 2,500 ton machines which we sold to customers in the United States and Canada. One of the larger projects we have undertaken was the sale of four Weingarten 3,500 ton machines located in the United States and sold to a customer starting a new die cast facility in Korea.

When it is time to repair, upgrade, rebuild, retrofit, re-manufacturer, re-control, replace or add die casting capacity to your facility, why not consider a good used Weingarten die casting machine? When considering the cost to upgrade the electronics, PLC controller and hydraulics on an existing machine, it is often much less expensive to buy a good quality used Weingarten machine from us. Our prices are often better than buying at auction. However, if you desire a fully rebuilt die casting machine with state-of-the-art controls, we can supply you with a low cost machine core which you can have rebuilt to your exact specifications. This allows you to continue production with your current machine while the core we supplied is being rebuilt. We are also happy to take your used machine in on trade, further reducing your costs.
