3. TOOL CONTROL
ONE-KEY Tool Control allows users to customize mode settings on ONE-KEY tools.
The first tools with tool control are the Milwaukee M18 FUEL Drill/Drivers. 1/4″ Hex Impact Driver and 3/8″ & 1/2″ Impact Wrenches.
Users will be able to change the factory settings for parameters such as speed and torque.
Customized settings are “set-and-forget” – tools do not have to be in continuous contact with a smart phone for the settings to be in effect.
Custom settings should improve user productivity on repetitive jobs with fastener-specific profiles.
With the touch of a button, users are able to choose between 4 different settings.
Factory settings can be reverted to at any time.
