WHAT IS MILWAUKEE ONE-KEY??
We will try to explain it here as well as link to all the One-Key enabled Milwaukee tools however the features and functionality will continue to improve! One-Key App can be downloaded for FREE for Apple or Android devices. One-Key tools have built in Bluetooth and RFID chips and currently focus on 3 main areas of Tool Control
(connecting to the tool to change RPM, Power and other features), Inventory Management
(Track and allocate all tools and equipment not just the One-Key tools) and finally Tool Reporting
(making sure tools perform exactly as required and create a report for inspection). See a brief into video below, full product list below that, a deeper dive into each of the 3 areas of focus and finally a list of One-Key FAQs.
Tool Control – Bluetooth Connection to your Tool
Connect to your tool via Bluetooth and manually set RPM, Torque Output and other features, customize each button with your own custom settings. Instead of guessing for power output to try and match manufacturer recommendations on fasteners, no-hub couplers, assembly and other applications just set the precise rating for the tool.
Tool Control allows you to harness the power and speed of M18 FUEL™, and completely configure your tools around the work you do. Using ONE-KEY™, wirelessly sync with your drills and impacts to program custom speed and torque settings directly into the tool’s memory. Advanced electronics inside the tool monitor its output, offering unmatched control and consistency with every trigger pull.
Online Tool Inventory Management
Centralize your tool inventory between the tool crib, each project and even each worker. Connect online or via your smart phone to manage the entire company's database of tools all from 1 place. One-Key allows you to track all tools and equipment across your network of jobs and users.
