Used Electric Semi Automatic Button Assembly Machine # 152 industrial button making

Used Model 152 Electric Button Assembly Machine & Industrial Button Maker for commercial button making

This is a commercial button maker machine with a big history.  This machine was used in the  2008 American General election where for the first time on a major scale buttons were available online and could be ordered as fundraisers. This was successfully pioneered by the Obama team. After the election the machine was warehoused for a number of years until we purchased a large number of machines in a single lot.  In early 2017 this machine was sent back to Tecre and serviced and checked.  We have since then tested it successfully on a couple of jobs before we now put it on the market for sale.  So this machine is serviced, tested and working well!

Getting a used Tecre #152 button machine is a rare find.  If you are in the business of bulk buttons this is a solid investment and great opportunity:

Please note Automatic Electric Button Maker Machine only! No dies included.  Used dies available in many sizes.

High speed, high volume production in 15 different sizes! Price of machine does not include turntables.

What is the difference between the  152 industrial production button machine and the more expensive 1095 model.

  • The 1095 industrial is more expensive but the dies are cheaper, if you're going for lots of sizes it could be an advantage.

  • The cheaper 152 model saves about $5000 on purchase but is limited on sizes.  The larger size dies 3-1/2", 4" and 6" are not available also the larger rectangular like the popular 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" or the 2" x 3" and the 2-1/2" and 3" square buttons are not available for the 152 industrial production button maker.
