Key duplication is done using specialized tools and machines. When a customer requests a duplicate key, the locksmith takes the key to their work table and cleans it. They then place key blanks into a vise on one side of a cutting machine and the original key into the vise on the other side of the machine to work as a guide.
With keys in parallel vises, the original key is moved alongside a guide and the machine cuts the blank so it’s identical or nearly identical to the original key. After cutting, the keys are removed from their vises and go through deburring to remove metal shards that can cut people and clothes or become dislodged in locks, making their tumblers freeze. Deburring is done using a small wire brush attached to a drill or Dremel tool.
When You Need a Locksmith
These days, some key-cutting machines are automated, or at least programmable. Other more complicated machines that use numerous tools to cut and grind away metal on keys can’t be automated yet or the cost of doing so is prohibitive. Many types of automotive keys require a licensed locksmith to duplicate, like dealer-only keys, keys by code, keys made from scratch, key fobs, etc.
Key duplication for simple house keys and older vehicles can be done at hardware stores, but those keys are often very rough and don’t work very well. Only a locksmith can create keys on site and cut high-security and laser-cut keys for you. Some locksmiths carry dual-cutting machines in their vans specifically to provide this service to customers in need. If you lose your original key, we can create another one for you.
A locksmith can do so much more than a key-cutting machine. They can cut keys using lasers, which is the best way to get the most accurate and well-fitting key. It takes specialized training to learn how to do laser cutting of keys, and the work is very intricate and painstaking. A locksmith is a specialist who can cut cylinder and mortise keys, which are the most popular, or high-security keys that are cut by laser. It’s somewhat rare for locksmiths to have laser machines, and we’ve made a significant investment in our business to be able to provide this service to customers.
