Don’t Lose Your Edge With a Darex Drill Sharpener

Darex Drill Sharpener XT3000

Whether your shop specializes in high-tech mass production or creative custom fabrications, there will be a need to keep your drill bits sharp. Rather than suffering with blunt drills or paying expensive sharpening costs, there’s a Darex Drill Sharpener that will lower your tool costs and make your toughest jobs run smoothly.

Darex Drill Sharpeners

Darex offers a wide range of sharpeners for manufacturers and fabricators of all sizes. For smaller shops with low-volume or intermittent sharpening needs, the V-391 is the most popular model. The XT-3000 is the versatile workhorse for most mid-to-large size manufacturers, and the fully automatic XPS-16+ CNC provides the ultimate in precision and productivity. In fact, the high-capacity XPS-16+ is the only machine in the world that can automatically detect a drill’s stick-out, diameter, and web thickness – then sharpen the drill – all in one continuous process without operator involvement.

Darex Sharpeners Pay For Themselves

A Darex Drill Sharpener saves money at a very affordable cost, leading to a rapid ROI. You can calculate how quickly a Darex Drill Sharpener can pay for itself using our Darex Return on Investment calculator. Or simply compare the cost of an in-house sharpening machine against your monthly expenses for the following: Purchasing new bits, sending dull bits out for re-sharpening, labour downtime, machine downtime, shipping and handling, and double inventory costs to cover for sending bits out for sharpening.
