Milwaukee ONE-KEY update

Milwaukee unlocks the digital jobsite with ONE-KEY update

Milwaukee ONE-KEY update

An update to the ONE-KEY™ app will be available with Integrated Tool Tracking. This functionality makes tracking your tools as simple as pulling out your phone. Integrated Tool Tracking allows users to identify where and when their ONE-KEY™ compatible tools were last seen. Tool records and locations are updated when any device with the ONE-KEY™ app comes within 100 feet of a ONE-KEY™ compatible tool, allowing the user to pinpoint missing tools quicker. Milwaukee® is the first to integrate Tool Tracking technology directly into tools, allowing them to be tracked with or without an M18™ battery attached.
 
All One-Key™ compatible tools will be trackable, including:
  • M18 FUEL™ 1/2" Drill/Driver with ONE-KEY™ Kit (2705-22)
  • M18 FUEL™ 1/2" Hammer Drill with ONE-KEY™ Kit (2706-22)
  • M18 FUEL™ ¼” Hex Impact Driver Kit with ONE-KEY™ (2757-22)
  • M18 FUEL™ 3/8” Compact Impact Wrench w/ Friction Ring with ONE-KEY™ Kit (2758-22)
  • M18 FUEL™ 1/2” Compact Impact Wrench w/ Pin Detent with ONE-KEY™ Kit (2759-22)
  • M18 FUEL™ 1/2” Compact Impact Wrench w/ Friction Ring with ONE-KEY™ Kit (2759B-22)
  • M18™ FORCE LOGIC™ 6T Crimper Kit with Fixed BG Die (2678-22BG)

What is the ONE-KEY™ to Unlocking the Digital Jobsite?

Milwaukee Tool will pioneer the next industry-changing technology with the introduction of ONE-KEY™, the first digital platform for tools and equipment.  By integrating industry-leading tool electronics with a custom-built cloud based program, ONE-KEY™ will provide a new level of control and access to information that will revolutionize the way work gets done. This will fundamentally change the way users interact with their tools, and help solve user problems and frustrations the industry has never before been able to address.
 
“The first phase of ONE-KEY™ will deliver 3 core benefits that will have an immediate impact on productivity: tool control, inventory management and tool reporting,” says Christian Coulis, Vice President of Product Management for Milwaukee Tool. “The possibilities that ONE-KEY™ brings to the job-site are endless, and these benefits are not the end result, but just the beginning! The capabilities of the program will continue to grow and evolve, and for the first time, we will be able to deliver more and more features to our product even after it is purchased.”
 
Inventory Management will be the first component available through the web and mobile app, creating a central place for users to manage all of their tools and equipment across their network of jobs and operators. This free-to-use platform allows companies to keep detailed records of each tool, even non-Milwaukee brands, so they can easily build a budget and manage their annual spend on equipment.  Managers are also able to assign locations or specific owners to each asset, providing accountability, and enabling easy information-sharing between the field and back-office. As a cloud based solution, updates and edits will be synchronized real-time throughout all levels of an organization.
 
Tool Reporting will be added to the ONE-KEY™ platform with the launch of M18™ FORCE LOGIC™ 6T Utility Crimpers. With the ability to wirelessly synchronize with the web based program, the user will be able to upload data and history to create custom reports that track the success and timing of electrical terminations. Furthermore, the ONE-KEY™ program will assist in tracking the utilization and service intervals of the tool to maximize uptime and keep inventory lean.
 
The corner stone of the ONE-KEY™ platform, Tool Control, is now available with the introduction of new M18 FUEL™ Drilling and Driving products that will sync wirelessly to the ONE-KEY™ application. The ONE-KEY™ app will allow users to use pre-determined set-ups for specific fasteners and materials, or completely customize their own profile with torque and speed settings for the application at hand. With a touch of the button on the tool, users will be able to easily go back and forth between these saved profiles so that each application is done with the most accurate and productive settings.
 
 “If you think about the number of fasteners that require different speeds and torques, or the amount of repetitive applications that our users experience on a daily basis, there are hundreds of different tool profiles and setups that can be implemented,” says Coulis.  “Tool Control will give users infinite customization capabilities for various applications, allowing them to make small tweaks that make a huge difference.” 
 
Now available for download, ONE-KEY™ will be accessible by computer from our website, or by a mobile app interface on compatible Android and iOS smartphones. ONE-KEY™ is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in game changing technology.
