Welding Equipment for Sale at HGR

Welding at HGR Industrial Surplus

Welding Equipment for Sale At HGR is a great way to save thousands, but welding has an important history as well. One of the most important processes in the world is Welding. If you take a look at some of the things you own in your household, many of them have been welded. There is a whole world to Welding. It may seem like an easy process since metal is just joined together through heat, but it can be complicated. There are different types of Welding as well as different ways to do it. There are also so many types of Welding Equipment to choose from. Not only can you buy Welding machines, but you can also become a Welder – and start doing it as a job. Whether you would like to buy equipment or you are just curious, this blog will be sure to help all of your Welding needs.

Welding has been around as long as we can trace back – but in different ways. According to https://weldguru.com/welding-history/, copper was the first metal to be shaped in Welding history. Serious Welding was thought to begin in Egypt around 4000 B.C. The civilizations used materials like gold, bronze, silver, and iron. A while after, humans began shaping the metal into items we see every day like jewelry and utensils. One of the most popular things that were made during this time was weapons. Welders were especially popular because the demand for weapons was high. The Egyptians started Soldering metal (melting two items together). They started doing this to help make the tombs. Big progress started happening during the industrial revolution. Skip to the present day, and there have been endless advancements to Welding Equipment.

Up to the current day, there are over 90 Welding processes available. Since technology is always growing, research for Welding Equipment grows as well. The newest and most popular Welding Equipment is called the Gas Metal Arc Welding – Brazing machine. It is used for making auto parts. The 4 most common types of Welding Processes include Gas Metal Arc Welding, Gas Tungsten Arc Gas Welding, Flux Cored Arc Welding, and Shielded Metal Arc Welding, according to https://www.lincolntech.edu/news/skilled-trades/welding-technology/types-of-welding-procedures. The future of Welding looks quite bright. Welding will become more automated in the future as technology keeps growing, and as many other machines become automated. There will also be many new developments that will help reduce energy in the machines. Since the new Gas Welding Equipment works efficiently and uses less energy, you can imagine what could possibly be developed in the future.

Press Brakes at HGR

If you work with or have anything to do with machines, you can understand how important the machine industry is. Industrial Machinery is incredibly important for every aspect of America, and all across the world as well. Whether you are looking for brand new machines or used machinery, this blog will highlight what some important machines are and how you can purchase them. 

Industrial machines can be used for many purposes, and there are also thousands of machines to choose from. Hydraulic Presses are a very popular and useful option. The machine is used to bend and fold metal by pressing it into a die. Next to these machines, CNC Press Brakes are very important machines. They are used to bend sheet metal. These two types of machines have many variations, and you can purchase them brand new or used. If you are looking for a place to purchase these machines after you are done reading this, there is something called a Machinery Dealer to help out with that. A Machinery Dealer is a business enterprise or corporation that engages in the retail sale of machinery equipment. Lucky for you, one of these Machinery Dealers is called HGR – which is an industrial surplus that can help with all of your machinery needs. 

If you know any information about Hydraulic Presses or CNC Press Brakes, you will know that these machines are quite similar and often work hand-in-hand. A CNC Press Brake bends sheets of metal by pinching it between a “punch” and a “die”. These enable the machine to either bend the metal in smaller or larger pieces depending on what you desire. CNC Press Brakes are practically metal bending machines, though they have many different varieties. These varieties include Mechanical, Pneumatic, Hydraulic, and Servo Electric Press Brakes. Many premium Press Brake Machines come with an electronic screen that helps the company operate what they would like even easier. As mentioned above, Press Brakes use dies to help bend the metal. There is also an abundance of variations of dies that can be purchased or used for Press Brakes. Some of these include Offset dies, Gooseneck dies, Multi bend dies, and V-dies. Right next to Press Brakes, there are also Hydraulic Presses. These machines can do the same metal bending as Press Brakes, but in a different way. This machine works by using hydraulic cylinders to apply a very strong force to either metal or another object, and then can either bend it, stamp it, or flatten it out. Hydraulic Presses are extremely popular for companies because they can do many different actions with just itself. These machines give the operator the ability to produce different products and looks. Just like Press Brakes, you can also purchase different types of the machine. Some of these examples include the Movable Frame, Air Operated, and the Double Acting Hydraulic Press. Each of these designs are different from each other and are able to do different tasks depending on what you are looking for. Researching what you would like before buying any types of these machines is incredibly smart because there are so many different varieties and prices. 

If you are interested in purchasing either a type of Press Brake or a Hydraulic Press, HGR is a great choice to choose.

A Pick and Place Robot is exactly what it sounds like. It picks up parts or items and places them in the desired location. Industrial robots have been an important part of everyday life but Pick and Place Robots are one of the first. In 1930, Bill Taylor was the first to build this robot.

Taylors invention was such an important part of machinery history because it led to a huge industry boost.
The modern Pick and Place robot is just how it was in the 1930’s – it has just evolved greatly. This works by placing the machine on a stable stand, and then you can position it to however you desire. Pick and Place Robots use advanced vision technology to look for objects, grasp them, and then move the objects from one place to another. The great thing about these robots is that there are many different types of models and design options available to help with whatever project you are looking to complete. A Pick and Place robot has many uses, including helping to package up products if you own a business.
If you are interested in purchasing and owning a Pick and Place Robot, there are many different models to choose from. The most common type of robot is the Robotic Arm. There are two types, called a 5-axis Robotic Arm and a 6-axis Robotic Arm. The 5-axis Arm is used for more simple projects, while the 6-axis Arm is used for more complex and bigger projects. The next type of robot is called the Cartesian, which is a lot like the 6-axis Arm. Another popular Pick and Place Robot is the Delta, which is very helpful for assembly projects.

Drill press up close in action

Featured Product – Drill Press


Our featured product is the multi purpose drill press. If you have ever worked with wood or metal, then you know what a Drill Press is, and why it is so important for manufacturing businesses. A Drill Press is a stationary power tool that is designed to bore precise holes into metal or wood. Owning a Drill Press has so many benefits – it can help with different projects! They are very large machines, but they come in handy to any craftsman. 

Two men under the names of Arthur James Arnot and William Blanch Brain were the first to patent the Electric Drill. Although there were human-powered drills made hundred of years previous, these two men broke through and came up with the Drill Press in Melbourne, Australia around 1889. Drill Presses have improved greatly since the first invention, but they still had many of the same parts that a Press uses today. The first Drill Presses had a motor, and a handle that you could use to feed the drill into the workpiece. You could also add adjustable tables, which allowed you to use larger or smaller workpieces, and you could also drill to different depths. 

As time went by, the Drill Press became more efficient. In the 1930s the Drill Press started to make its biggest strides from a innovation standpoint. The most important characteristic of a Drill Press is the accuracy of it. The more accurate the Drill Press is, the better it is going to work for its owner. That is the most important thing to look for when purchasing a Drill Press. After the presses began improving, big companies like Delta and JD Wallace started to enter the industry and produce very high-quality Drill Presses. 

Drill press at a shopModern Drill Presses have still improved greatly since 1930. The two major recent advances for these machines are the lasers, and the speed without having belt changes. There have been major improvements in technology, so they have been added to these machines. Instead of having to use a system of belts for the Drill Press, the modern improvement now consists of using a knob electronically. The power of the drill can now be preserved due to new technology. Now that modern technology uses laser beams, the Drill Press uses a laser to look down onto the work piece to indicate where the drill will go. 

After hearing about Drill Presses, you may be wondering how to get one, or where to get one. HGR Industrial has many different types of Drill Presses for sale, as well as many different brands. You can see them here. Since Drill Presses have improved so greatly through the years, they will only keep getting better. Keep an eye on the Drill Presses that HGR offer because there are so many to choose from, and they will only keep improving the machines. Stronger improvement in technology means stronger improvement in Drill Presses.

This helps you gauge your future interests auctions. This could be for whether you are shopping for machinery, or looking to auction some of your assets.

In February you can see our latest auctions on the page and make sure you register early. One of those is for a Major Nutraceutical Soft-gel Manufacturer. This is a timed auction and will be online only. Online auctions are not ran by HGR so all of the details of each auction vary per auction. For this auction you will find machinery like mixers, storage tanks, mills, hoists, and more. These items are all able to be bid on once the auction opens on February 4 at 11 a.m. and begins to close on February 11 at 11 a.m.

Inspecting the items you want to bid on is important. When the majority of the recent auctions have been done online, pictures of a machine may not be enough to invest thousands in. This is why each auction will set up what is called an inspection day. Each auction handles this differently, but typically there is an inspection day, one day before the auction. This does change from auction to auction. And some may be by appointment only, so please check each car by case.

Looking to the New Year at HGR

HGR has undergone some changes in 2020 and as the year comes to a close, we wanted to look back at some of them. Internally and externally there was aim at improving our processes and the facility itself. The building has been around for quite some time and if you are interested in the history of it, you can read more about it here. The front entrance has been remodeled with a better customer experience in mind. Under the hood, HGR is refining some processes with improving the overall flow of how you do business there. While you may not notice these changes, they will be the way of the future.z

HGR looked to address a few requests form truck drivers and customers when redoing the front entrance. During some of the busier days the loading times may vary. In the summer most drivers and customers will wait outdoors for their items to be loaded. There wasn’t a defined safe area for them to stand, and now HGR has addressed that by adding a waiting area outdoors behind a retaining wall. If you need a break from the sun, a shaded area has been added to help. To add to the aesthetics, landscaping was put in around the break area.


The website is the number one pipeline for the customers to see the latest incoming products at HGR. When there are hundreds of new arrivals daily, it pays for the site to be fast and informative. Some of the restructuring under the hood should lead to an improved site performance. With over 18 thousand items, and pages for each item, there can be some higher than desired loading times. This is what HGR looks to address in 2021. There may also be some changes to look of the site, but the overall functions will remain the same. There is a mission to make the shopping experience online as easy and as fast as possible. Due to the nature of HGR’s business, purchases will still be made in the traditional manner of phone call or mail in check. There is no flat rate to charge for shipping and factor that into payment, without setting up a quote. The variety of items and the differences between each receiving party make estimates without human interaction impossible. This also leads to the best possible rate due to having all available information. While it may take an extra minute or two, it could save you thousands in the end.

HGR is excited about the future and hopes to improve on what we believe is a good customer experience. 2020 is in the rear view and next year you can look forward to bigger and better sales and the addition of more auctions. HGR Auctions will be your home for all upcoming auctions.
