Milwaukee® Elevates Press Tool Intelligence to New Heights
MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to lead the industry in the shift from traditional connection methods with the introduction of the first 4” capacity press tool with wireless reporting capabilities, remote tracking, management, and lockout. The M18™ FORCE LOGIC™ Press Tool w/ ONE-KEY™ is the industry’s smallest, most intelligent press tool. With an in-line design and brushless motor, this tool achieves more run-time per charge and faster cycle times while being significantly smaller and nearly 20% lighter than the leading competitor. In addition, this tool enhances the overall press connection experience by logging and uploading data from every press for retrieval via the One-Key™ desktop or mobile app.
“Over the last 7 years we’ve seen an upward trend in the number of installers turning to press to make pipe connections. This is due to the immense safety benefits of removing open flames from the jobsite, the time saved not sweating and soldering, and the proven consistency and reliability of press connections,” said Alex Boll, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “The M18™ FORCE LOGIC™* Press Tool has set the bar for productivity in pipe connections and, while it’s always been the smallest and most intelligent press tool on the market, we’re elevating that intelligence even more this year through the addition of One-Key™. This will give installers the unique ability to provide full data transparency with inspectors and other key project stakeholders.”
The most intelligent full-sized press tool on the market, this press tool delivers piece of mind, even on the most critical jobs. A pre-press battery check prevents the user from starting a press the tool cannot complete, while Auto-Cycle ensures a full press every time and indicates to the user via a green light that the connection is complete.
Compatible with One-Key™**, the industry’s largest tracking network, this tool provides automatic recording functionality to save connection data and report on it. These One-Key™ reports can be easily customized and organized for the job at hand. In addition, One-Key™ allows users to wirelessly connect to the tool through their smartphone to track its location and lock-out the tool for added security. The technology enables tool crib managers and foremen to monitor the utilization of the tool once it’s at a job to ensure optimal allocation of tools across all jobs.
The M18™ FORCE LOGIC™ Press Tool w/ One-Key™ and compatible jaws are designed to work with all major fitting manufacturers, currently compatible with 20 unique systems and continuing to expand. 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. This new tool is part of the M18™ System, now offering more than 200 power tool solutions.
