I would like to learn more about the differences between the two. Which one do you recommend more and why? Also if someone can stand on the differences between: MPM UP 3000 HI E MPM UP 3000 MPM UP 2000 HI E MPM UP 2000

Any information would help!

First off, go with HiE (Hi Efficiency) machines only.

UP3K and UP2K have huge differences- board size, speed, options, etc... too many to list really.

I would recommend UP2K HiE over UP3K HiE. Its a simpler machine and easier to find on the used market and maintain once you own one- cost of ownership lower for UP2K HiE and is more reliable. Plus, UP3K is (going) obsolete. They are still building UP2K HiE. You can download a UP2K HiE brochure here:

Im sure you will get some better responses but here is a start. We went from UP2000 to UP3000 Ultraflex about 2 years ago. The UP-2000 uses tooling nests and UP-3000 Ultraflex does not. Makes a huge difference in setup time. Up-3000 is BIG. I think the HI-E just has a faster cycle time but I could be wrong. We like the UP-3000 way better. If you buy a used one stay away from the older serial numbers.
