Davis # 15 Automatic Keyseaters
Using the multiple tooth cutters, the DAVIS KEYSEATER is fast cutting, precise, and easy to set-up and operate.

Manual and automatic feed keyseaters (broaching machines ) available.

Davis Keyseaters can cut keyways that range widely in depth, whereas hand broaches are limited.

Our machines are also able to accept simple fixtures for external shaping and slotting of work pieces that are conventionally milled. This feature, combined with the rugged machine design and cost cutting tooling principle, make the DAVIS KEYSEATER one of the most versatile machines in your shop.

Shown above is our custom electronic variable speed version. The same vector drive is used on this model that we use on most of our CNC machines.  The LED display can be set to display strokes per minute or surface feet per minute. This gives the operator the ability to set the speed to give optimum finish and tool life, just the way you would on a lathe, mill or drill, which is particularly important when cutting keyways in stainless steel or roller die materials..
