Trouble Cutting abus plus keys


Recommended Posts

Good evening folks
I am trying to cut an abus plus key on a Silca Unocode with the e13 adapter. I enter the code into the Silca software but the machine cuts the key but they don’t work, the key looks right but it  looks like it’s not cutting deep enough. I’ve tried manually adjusting the cutting card but with no success. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The adapter is useless it does not work, the cuts  need curving to finish off. Check a genuine and you will see what I mean. We bought the adapter from Aldridges a few years ago and returned it as it is not fit for purpose. I have managed to get the rotating jaw with adapters and that works a treat.

Nothing wrong with the jaw, you do it manually on cuts hence why the machine waits before going to the next cut. Just need loosen off the shield on the sensor side, so the machine thinks the lid is shut and round cuts 1, 2 & 3 to R/L and they work fine. Cut mine on the 399 Evo for years.

Does it work as it should ? No.

Therefore not fit for purpose, did not want to risk any injury as health and safety would go mental.

We did finish them manually on our skm6000 but it seemed pointless paying for a jaw that does not work. The safety shield is there for a reason.

That’s ok if you only have a few to cut. We get them in batches of 50 or 100 to cut so we need them to work first time every time.
