Milwaukee launch new system called One Key

Milwaukee One Key, the first digital platform for tools and equipment, was launched in the UK towards the end of 2015, yet many tradesmen are still unsure of the benefits and whether if it’s worth an upgrade.

We take a brief look at the new technology, the top features and ask if you think it’s worth the upgrade.

What is Milwaukee One Key?

Milwaukee One Key brings together the latest technology in hardware and software to create ‘smart tools’ – power tools that integrate with a smartphone app providing the user with a new level of control and customisation.

The purpose of the new system is to bring digital tech to the job site, making it easier for tradesmen to customise, track and manage their Milwaukee tools.
