The F Jaw was developed in response to our automotive OEM and dealership customers changing business needs as more vehicles move toward high security locking systems, said Christopher Paczak, Director of Product Management for Barnes Distribution. With the introduction of the F Jaw, dealers can now service their customers key cutting requirements for both high security and edge-cut style keys with one machine - reducing capital expense and turning the key cutting process into a profit center for their businesses.
Domestic and foreign OEMs have widely approved the highly advanced BD Laser and its F Jaw attachment that provides dealerships flexibility and proven quality with the industrys leading key cutting machine. The F Jaw provides a solution for our customers that have the need to cut traditional style keys and do not want to invest in two separate key machines, said Ladd-E Urbas, Security Products Engineer for Barnes Distribution. The F Jaw converts the BD Laser High Security Key Cutting Machine into a traditional Edge Cut Key Machine, enabling it to cut to OEM Key Codes and provide a precise reproduction of the factory key, versus an imperfect copy.
The F Jaw kit includes the machine jaw, two cutters, one tracer, a magnetic tip-stop and complete software updates for edge-cut keys. The package includes a quick start guide to educate the technician to quickly get up and running with edge-cut style key cutting on their BD Laser. The F Jaw accessory is available with all new purchased and leased units, as well as all prior purchased and leased machines.
The state-of-the-art BD Laser guides its user through the entire key cutting process, and includes an easy-to-use make, model, year look up feature. In addition, the unit is self-calibrating, eliminating the need for manual adjustments.
