Item description

The Silca Unocode 299 is an electronically controlled computerised code cutting machine for household and automotive keys.

The machine is ideal for use by all locksmiths, large or small, and is considered the "industry standard" for code cutting machines in Australia.

High quality construction, precision, ease of use and full functionality are hallmarks of the Unocode machines. The Unocode 299 has been designed to allow the locksmith to cut keys to code accurately and quickly.

The machine features a huge on-board "space & depth" database and via the integrated LCD screen & keypad the locksmith enters the type of key to be cut, the cuts required, and how many keys are needed. The machine tells the locksmith where in the jaws to insert the blank, and when the shield is lowered cuts the key automatically.

The Unocode also features a unique cutter, it has one angled and one flat side which allows the machine to automatically make the correct angled cut on virtually any key without needing to change the cutter. The machine interpolates the cutting cycle automatically to achieve the correct angle.

The machine also features a PC interface via a serial port which allows large numbers or blocks of cutting data to be transmitted to the machine from software including Silca's own dedicated Unocode program, Instacode or ProMaster.

Being a Silca machine, quality and precision are second to none.

What is the best cutter to use for my Silca Machine?

LSC sells a range of cutters to suit most price ranges from the Original Silca Cutters to the Actuance branded Cutters. It is always advised to use a Carbide cutter though as it will last much longer and cut a better key that a standard high speed steel cutter
