Welding curtains, current controls, and wire are also available at lower costs than buying a new welder or welding supplies. Be sure to see what all we have. Here is a little more about the types of welders in our sub categories. 

Spot welders use a process called resistance welding. This process uses heat from an electrical current, and by applying pressure. Typically this process is used weld two or more pieces of sheet metal together. One of the major benefits to spot welding, is the ability to send a large amount of energy to a small spot in a short time. This lets the particular weld reach high temperatures without causing the heat to travel across the whole piece of metal. The resistance between electrodes and the magnitude of the duration of the current determine the amount of heat delivered. 

Arc welders also use electricity to create heat, and this heat is used to melt the metal and when it cools, the metal binds to each other. There is an arc between the welding stick and the base material at the point of contact which causes that reaction. The weld area is typically protected by some sort of shielding gas, vapor, or slag. Arc welding was developed in the 19th century and was a pivotal part of ship building during the Second World War. 

Seam welders are used to make gaseous or liquid joints for applications in sheet metal. This welder also uses a roller instead of using a stick. This method is mainly used on a variety of metals in pipes including its use on auto mufflers. HGR has all of these types of used welders in stock and ready to go. Look through the website and see for yourself. Mae sure you check back often. New arrivals are coming in daily.

Man working a roll former

Roll formers are used in a process of the continuous bending of sheet metal, strip or coil stock. This process allows operations like notching, punching, and welding to be performed in-line. Roll forming has been around for a very long time, dating back to as early as 600 BCE in the areas of the Middle East and Southern Asia. They were using the basics of what we would come to know as a rolling mill. The more streamlined mills that are more familiar today started to surface from DaVinci’s drawings and were created across Europe and Britain. This history has set up the industries in which roll formers are used today. 

Coil reel in use

Coil reels are another great item you will come across in HGR’s fabrication category.  According to Warehousemachines.com – Coil is a type of conductor wire, such as copper, in a form that is cylindrical. It is wrapped around an iron core which creates an inductor or electromagnet that stores magnetic energy. Companies that focus on coil processing solutions cater to various metal-working industries around the world since they are aware that one size does not fit all. In process applications, it is the energy transfer efficiency that is the most important performance factor for coils.

Clausing Lathes at HGR Industrial Surplus

Clausing is one of many manufacturers you will come across when browsing through HGR’s robust inventory of used machinery and surplus supplies. Currently, the inventory boasts more than 20 thousand items available for purchase.  The inventory includes Lathes, CNC Machines, Drill Presses, Maintenance Supplies, Woodworking Equipment, and too many others to name. Let’s take a closer look at Clausing and their history. 

Founded by Paul Clausing in 1931, there were three factors that motivated him to enter the lathe industry. He purchased a South Bend Lathe and used it as a hobby lathe and began thinking. First, he believed he could make a better lathe than South Bend Lathes. Second, was the thought the his current career in the Monarch Film Company didn’t have a viable future. Finally, Paul clashing decided he wanted to be his own boss. So, Paul found a small business in Ottumwa, Iowa and began making hobby-sized lathes that were sold at Sears. 

Paul didn’t do this alone however. In March of 1932, Otto moved to Iowa to work with his brother. Otto was three years older than Paul and had a string mechanical aptitude at an early age. When he was around 11, Otto would take apart his parent’s tabletop clock. This model in particular was called a grandfather’s clock, meaning it had a pendulum. Taking it apart may not be out of the ordinary for children, but putting it back together, and in working order, before his parent’s return was impressive. It was this that made him essential to his brothers business. 

The original factory was a meager 2,000 sqft. And housed a few pieces of light machinery. The great depression took it’s toll however and this lead to Sears cancelling their orders for the hobby lathes they were creating. The primary product they began manufacturing was a lathe attachment called a slide rest. They were supplying these slide rests to a company called, Duro. With finances being dire and the business battling the depression, it wasn’t until 1935 that they were able to purchase a planer. This would allow Otto to plane the first lathe beds for woodturning lathes. In 1936, Clausing broke through with what would become a mainstay of their business. It was a screw-cutting lathe, that later evolved into the Series 100. 

The history of Clausing is interesting and is worth the read.

Used Generators at HGR Industrial Surplus

The manufacturing industry is dependent upon the production continuing under any circumstance. In order to maintain this, there needs to be a constant flow of power. Industrial generators are large enough to keep some of the necessary functions going. These backup generators are essential to keeping things running like clock work. If you are in need of one, see what HGR has to offer. Buying a used generator can save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. HGR has a wide variety so feel free to browse our category or read on below for more details. 

A quick look at the history and how the generator creates electricity provides some interesting insight. In 1831, scientist Michael Faraday discovered that when a magnet is moved inside a coil of wire, an electric current flows in the wire. An electricity generator is a device that converts a form of energy into electricity. Generators operate because of the relationship between magnetism and electricity. Generators that convert kinetic (mechanical) energy into electrical energy produce nearly all of the electricity that consumers use.

A common method of producing electricity is from generators with an electromagnet—a magnet produced by electricity—not a traditional magnet. The generator has a series of insulated coils of wire that form a stationary cylinder. This cylinder surrounds a rotary electromagnetic shaft. When the electromagnetic shaft rotates, it induces a small electric current in each section of the wire coil. Each section of the wire coil becomes a small, separate electric conductor. The small currents of the individual sections combine to form one large current. This current is the electricity that moves through power lines from generators to consumers.

HGR has some of these generators in stock currently including Generac made generators.

Haas Machinery Close Up

Haas Machinery at HGR Industrial Surplus

Haas is a widely known brand in machinery that has four major product lines it manufactures : vertical machining centers, horizontal machining centers, CNC lathes, and rotary tables. All of the products at Haas are manufactured in Oxnard, California in an expansive facility, which is the largest modern machine tool manufacturer in the United States. That’s impressive considering they only began in 1983. Haas gives a glimpse of their beginnings on their site. 

Haas Machinery Triptect

“Gene Haas founded Haas Automation, Inc., in 1983 to manufacture economical and reliable machine tools. The company entered the machine tool industry with the first-ever, fully automatic, programmable collet indexer – a device used to position parts for machining with very high accuracy. The patented Haas 5C collet indexer was a huge success, and over the next four years, the company expanded its product line to include a wide selection of fully programmable rotary tables, rotary indexers, and machine tool accessories.” (Haas Website)

They decided in 1987 to develop their first vertical machining center to perform operations like drilling, tapping, and boring. They were able to manufacture a machine that had costs competitive to their overseas counterpart. In 1988 they had completed the prototypes. They were met with skepticism that a machine made in American could be sold for less than $50k. Haas delivered on their word and were able to meet demand to much success.
