Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Quattrocode Quattrocode is an automatic electronic key-cutting machine for duplicating laser and dimple security keys.
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Silca has skilfully applied the most advanced electronic technology to Quattrocode and Silca Quattrocode Program and created an innovative key- cutting system which guarantees: constant precision ease of use safety for the Operator life-time reliability functions which check and safeguard the tools and component parts of the machine. Quattrocode
Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Quattrocode Key cutting has been automated, including certain operations which up till now could only be carried out by hand, this means time-saving and also assures high precision for the finished item.
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Worn Keys A common problem in cutting sidewinder (laser) keys and dimple keys. With such keys it is necessary to correct discrepancies with absolute precision. Quattrocode does this by decoding the key, comparing the resulting measurements with these contained in a file relating to the original key and making any necessary adjustments so that a key which is identical to the original can be made.
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Machine Calibration Calibrating the Quattrocode is an automatic process, so for the first time absolute precision can be guaranteed eliminating variations caused by the operator’s handling of the machine. With Quattrocode the cutting process no longer depends on time-consuming manual calibration of the machine, which also requires a certain amount of skill. Incorrect settings may lead to imperfections in the finished item.
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 The evolution of security cylinders increasingly requires key-cutting by code. Quattrocode and Silca Quattrocode Program together constitute the first automated key-cutting system which can refer back to cutting parameters for the cylinder stored in the program, whichever cutting method is selected from those available on Quattrocode. Data may be added to the Silca Quattrocode Program file so that a personal database is formed for all the operations carried out by the user. Data Files / Database
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Software Quattrocode is run by the Silca Quattrocode Program, innovative dedicated software which, together with the key-cutting machine, has made it possible to create a new way of reproducing keys. Selection of the lock system from the file Selection of the cutting method
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 The program comprises simple successive windows and has been designed to provide all the help necessary to optimise the cutting of dimple and laser keys. Software Selection of the lock system from the file Selection of the cutting method
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Besides checking the data read during decoding and the possibility to create personal files, the program also displays diagrams oh the keys and the cutting parameters so that they can be modified, if necessary.

Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Self-Diagnosis Quattrocode is able to carry out fully automatic self-diagnosis on its component parts and warn the Operator of any faults.
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Decoding Quattrocode is also an electronic decoder which makes it possible, by means of Silca Quattrocode program, to eliminate the need to take measurements for the purpose of checking any discrepancies in the key to be duplicated. Instructions on the machine display
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 This process has been fully automated and the measurements read are shown on the display together with those for the original so that differences can be seen immediately. Decoding Display of the depths read from the key
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Safety With Quattrocode the Operator can work happily in complete safety (protective shields, emergency cut-out button, control sensors, etc.) and the machine is designed to safeguard the tools from breakage or damages caused by improper use. Quattrocode selects the appropriate tools to use and is able to test their presence.
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Automation Quattrocode carries out many operations automatically. These are: automatic recognition of the clamp and the consequent cutting method; opening/closing of the tool grips; automatic recognition of the presence of tools and their settings, automatic selection of the appropriate speed for the cutter to be used. Automatic calibration of the jaws
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 With Quattrocode Operator may choose from a number of cutting methods. Cutting Methods
Quattrocode Copyright Silca S.p.A. 2003 Cutting Methods Cutting can be carried out: 1) by decoding the key to be copied 2) by entering the direct code for the key (cuts) 3) by entering the indirect code for the key (for the series available). A high quality peformance is ensured from Quattrocode and Silca Quattrocode Program with all the available cutting methods. 1 2 3
