The BD Laser is equipped with two cutters for originating and duplicating all vehicle makes and models. One cutter is specially designed to cut Honda keys only. The second cutter is for all other makes and models.

This computerized key machine is fully automatic. Each time a vise jaw is mounted, the BD Laser confirms that the correct jaw is in the machine before the cutting the key. This reduces the possibility of error. Once the BD Laser has been adjusted, switching between cutters does not require re-calibration and takes less than one minute. The BD Laser is capable of cutting keys made of brass, nickel-silver or steel.

Because of the variation in the shape, thickness, and the cutting procedure of the high-security keys, four vise jaws are available. Each vise jaw is designed to provide the best clamping configuration for cutting the different shapes of side-milled keys.

Jaw A (red) is designed for cutting Acura, Pontiac, Honda, and specific code series of Land Rover, Mercedes, Saab, and Volvo key blanks.

Jaw B (gray) is designed for cutting specific code series of BMW and Volvo key blanks.

Jaw C (green) is designed for cutting Audi, Kia, Lexus, Mazda, Porsche, Volkswagen, and specific code series of BMW and Saab key blanks.

Jaw D (Blue) is designed for cutting Chrysler, and specific code series of Mercedes key blanks.

Another feature of the BD Laser electronic key origination machine is the worn cutter indicator. This indicator notifies the operator when the cutter needs sharpening or replacement to ensure that keys are properly cut. Each cutter usage is maintained in memory.

To keep current with new key code series and spacing and depth introductions, the BD Laser key machine is equipped a Smart Media Cardâ„¢ reader, phone line port, Ethernet port, USB port, and an internal modem. Initial software updates will be available as smart media cards. Future updates will be available as Smart Cards or through down loading from the internet. Software updates, as they become available, are included at no cost while the BD Laser is under warranty.

The BD Laser's price varies depending upon the number of vise jaws and the optional vacuum system included with the machine. Purchasing a BD Laser includes a three-year warranty on parts, labor, and software updates (excluding cutters and tracer). A one-year warranty extension is available.

The BD Laser can also be leased. Leasing a BD Laser includes a warranty on parts, labor and software updates (excluding cutters and tracer) for the life of the lease. At the end of a lease period, the lease can either be extended, the BD Laser can be purchased, or the unit returned.
