Darex will be exhibiting the XPS-16 automatic CNC drill bit sharpener. According to the company, this is an extremely accurate and versatile sharpener for high-tech applications. It can sharpen two-fluted HSS, cobalt, carbide and coated bits. It can sharpen to any angle from 118 to 150 degrees, and any bit between 3 and 16 mm in diameter. The sharpener’s CNC control allows the user to customize point styles for their needs and save them for future use. 

This model features a number of updates, including doubling the number of stored drill files. The upgraded model also allows for split only operations, letting the user choose between no-split, X-split, R-split and split-only options. According to the company, the new sharpener is 20 percent faster. The start of the grind position has been incremented for a more efficient use of the abrasive for longer wheel life. In addition, greater resolution has been added to the motors for improved surface finish.
