Milwaukee® Delivers the Fastest Cordless Riveting with New M18 FUEL™ ¼” Blind Rivet Tool w/ONE-KEY™
MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to eliminate the need for pneumatics by delivering best-in-class cordless performance with the introduction of the M18 FUEL™ ¼” Blind Rivet Tool w/ONE-KEY™, the industry’s fastest cordless rivet tool. Engineered with Milwaukee®’s advanced M18 FUEL™* technology, the new tool installs rivets up to 50% faster and delivers up to 3X longer life versus competitive cordless rivet tools, all while eliminating the hassle and maintenance of pneumatic compressors and hoses.
“Over two years ago, our M12™ Rivet Tool disrupted the market as the world’s first cordless rivet tool for the professional trades that created a viable replacement for outdated and, frankly, strenuous hand tool riveting solutions,” said Eric Rusch, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “By capitalizing on our M18 FUEL™ technology, we are now capable of delivering an even faster and far more productive cordless riveting solution for users to fully replace air tools.”
True to all M18 FUEL™ solutions, the new M18 FUEL™ blind rivet tool combines three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence. The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor delivers 4,500 lbs. (20kN) of pulling force for high strength blind rivets in all materials. M18™ REDLITHIUM™ batteries deliver more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack, installing up to (900) 3/16” aluminum or (500) ¼” aluminum blind rivets in one charge**. REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence ensures maximum performance and protects against overload, over-heating, and over-discharge.
Complete with a 3-jaw design built with premium steel alloy materials, the rivet tool jaws last longer than alternative solutions on the market to minimize downtime and deliver more work between jaw changes. The blind rivet tool is built with an all-metal gearcase, impact strength plastics, and a protective over-mold to withstand harsh shop, plant, and field environments while maintaining a lightweight feel.
As an added benefit, ONE-KEY™*** provides the ability to track, manage, and secure the rivet tool.
The rivet tool comes with a set of four retention nose pieces (3/16”, 7/32”, 1/4”, and 9/32”) to hold blind rivets in place once inserted into the tool. Complete with onboard storage, the tool allows for all four retention nose pieces, as well as the wrench for switching between sizes, to be stored on the tool. For versatility, non-retention nose pieces are available separately. For added utility, a protective boot is available to offer a lightweight, durable solution for tool and workpiece protection and an available 6” extension allows users to install rivets in hard to reach applications.
Milwaukee is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. The new M18 FUEL™ ¼” Blind Rivet Tool w/ONE-KEY™ is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 200 power tool solutions.
