For applications that require many different styles of key blanks, Numberall has a Universal Key Nest fixture that will adapt to most key blank styles. It is available in two styles. The first style is smaller and can be used with Numberall’s Platforms and Power Presses. The other style is larger and made on a table insert for the Model 40B Numbering & Lettering Press. Both styles use hardened steel bases for long life.
The keys can be inserted on the left or right side depending on blank style. The neck of the key is pushed down until the head of the key comes in contact with the stop block. The spring-loaded gate holds the key against the stop block for the stamping operation.
