Milwaukee Tool introduces new M18 FUEL™ Drill Drivers, Hammer Drills and Compact Impacts that can be completely customized for better control over power, speed and consistency through ONE-KEY™ [milwaukeetool.com/one-key]. These new drilling and fastening solutions connect wirelessly to the ONE-KEY™ app, allowing users to use predetermined set-ups for specific fasteners and materials, or completely customize their own profile with torque and speed settings for the application at hand.
“This is an exciting time in power tool history. Our M18 FUEL™ drills and impacts are the most powerful on the market. Because these tools feature a combination of the smartest electronics available, brushless motors and advanced lithium-ion batteries, their power and versatility make them perfect for an incredibly wide variety of applications. With all this power at their fingertips, our users want to be able to harness the performance and customize it for their specific needs,” said Christian Coulis, Vice President of Product Management for Milwaukee Tool. “With ONE-KEY™ we’re giving our users the ability to take full advantage of the sophisticated electronics in our M18 FUEL™ tools so they can communicate with them in ways never before possible and tailor their tool to how they work.”
The Tool Control functionality within ONE-KEY™ allows users to customize a variety of settings in managing tool output – everything from torque and speed to trigger ramp up and sensing progress throughout a given application. Easily configured, these tools will automatically adjust based on the inputs.
“This is truly a game-changer for the industry and its professionals,” said Coulis. “We’re, essentially, pushing the boundaries of cordless tools and putting the power to do so in the hands of the people who know their tools best – the users.”
As with all M18 FUEL™ products*, the new tools feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations — the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ XC5.0 Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software— to deliver unmatched performance, durability and run-time.
Available in February 2016, the new M18 FUEL™ drilling and fastening solutions, compatible w/ ONE-KEY™, are a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in game changing technology. Not only will ONE-KEY™’s capabilities** lead to more efficient work, better performance and consistently accurate results, but as the program’s capabilities evolve, Milwaukee Tool will be able to deliver more features to a product even after it’s purchased – translating to invaluable productivity gains
