Drilling and Fastening Solutions

November 2018

Milwaukee Tool is taking the performance of its M18 FUEL™ Hammer Drill, Drill/Driver and Impact Driver to the next level with the addition of ONE-KEY™. Through a ground-up redesign of the motor, mechanical and electrical components of these core tools, these drilling and fastening solutions achieve 60% more power, are up to 2X faster and are the most compact-size solutions on the market. These newest additions include ONE-KEY™ functionality so users can also easily customize, track and manage the tools through the app on their mobile device. Accessible within the app is a range of new features such as anti-kickback technology and a self-tapping screw mode that automatically shuts the tool off once a screw is seated.
ONE-KEY™ Tool Customization gives users access to a range of common task presets and features including anti-kickback and an improved self-tapping screw mode. Both the ONE-KEY™ enabled M18 FUEL™ Hammer Drill and Drill/Driver include anti-kickback technology. The mode gives users increased control in bind-up situations, and they can adjust the sensitivity of the mode based on the application at hand. This provides users with more versatility and avoids the nuisance of dealing with shut-downs during certain applications. Additionally, users can choose to turn this mode on/off or adjust sensitivity depending on the job.
The ONE-KEY™ enabled M18 FUEL™ Impact Driver features the ability for users to select the steel gauge, screw length, diameter and head. Once set, the tool will automatically shut off once the screw is seated to reduce stripping of fasteners and damage to material.
Users can set their preferred task controls and, with the touch of a button on the tool, easily switch between saved tasks so each application is done with the most accurate and productive settings. Once the tool is set, a mobile device is no longer needed. Users can also access available setups based on common applications and materials.
The ONE-KEY™ Integrated Tool Tracking functionality allows users to identify where and when their tools were last seen. Records and locations will update when any device with the ONE-KEY™ app comes within 100’ of the tools, allowing users to quickly pinpoint missing tools. Integrated Tool Security provides an extra layer of protection by allowing users to lock out their tools to prevent theft and tampering. With Simplified Tool and Equipment Management, users also have a central place to take inventory of their tools and all other tools and equipment and keep detailed records of all inventory to easily build a budget and manage spend.
