    Hi,

    I'm wondering if anyone can help me out there,

    I'm looking at getting some idea of what might be a realistic price to expect for a 2nd hand ISEL 4 -Axis Servo CNC Machine Model GFV 68/52H.

    The machine itself is fully operational, clean and has done very little work at all as it was mainly used for testing of 3D output in light materials.

    Here are the specs,
    • Control and Computer in Free Standing Unit running Windows 98 !
    • Travel 680 x 520 x 300mm
    • 4 Position Tool Changer
    • Rotary Axis 40: 1 Ration
    • DC/Servo Encoder Motors
    • 3 Jaw Chuck and Tailstock Assembly
    • Maquette Volume 4 Axis Professional Software
    • Year of Manufacture 2000.


    Any advice willing accepted,

    Many thanks,

    G

    Nice machine that - a pal of mine has something vaguely similar (same footprint but no cage and no ATC) of a similar age and apart from replacing the x axis motor a couple of years back it's given nigh on 2 decades faultless service. How much is it worth? hard to say, but I've seen smaller/lower spec Isel machines of that ilk up for 4..5K on the Bay of fleas if that's any help.

    Amazing how technology changes - that CRT screen takes me back !

    Why is the Z axis so long? It would reach the table and then some. Does the table lower or gantry raise up on spacers? Or it used on other machines?

    Thanks for your reply, it is a nice bit of kit and has hardly been used. I was thinking of something around the 5.5k or 6k mark but just wanted to put it one at a realistic price to start with.

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes, I agree a real blast from the near past.

    The Z axis was spec'd out that way as we wanted to cut some fairly large blocks using the rotary axis, in hindsight maybe a bit of an overkill.
    Unfortunately the table is fixed at that position, so its a little bit bespoke but maybe still of interest to someone out there.
