XSHARP™ Grinder

Tool sharpening is fast, simple and precise with Wilson Tool International’s XSharp™ grinder. Take operator time and grinding skills  out of the equation with XSharp™’s hands-off, automated process. The operator simply enters the tool style, size and grind amount into the touchscreen interface and XSharp™ takes it from there.
 
The XSharp™ uses an automated height detection feature to locate the top of the tool before grinding. Height detection is accurately done with a precision gear and ball screw. Other key features include a powerful closed coolant system, automatic grinding wheel wear compensation and an interlocking safety guard. Many more features work together to ensure maximum speed and accuracy.
 
Why regrind? Sharp tools help to ensure you get burr-free parts, maximum tool life, reduced tooling costs, and less scrapped parts due to tooling malfunction. Sharp tools also assist in minimizing tonnage to save on punch press wear and tear.
