Milwaukee Tool, a leading manufacturer of professional-grade power tools and accessories, has just announced an all-new line of threading Taps and Dies. This new product range, consisting of 125 threading solutions, aims to revolutionize the market for Automotive Technicians, Service Electricians, Maintenance Crews, and beyond. By addressing the limitations and frustrations of traditional taps and dies that are currently on the market, Milwaukee has developed a user-driven solution that offers enhanced precision, convenience, and durability to achieve clean and accurate threading results on various metal applications.

Recognizing the lack of innovation in this category over the years, Milwaukee was committed to disrupting the market with the launch of these new threading accessories.

We take pride in conducting countless hours of field research with our users, understanding their pain points with current solutions, their needs, and their applications. Through our research, we found that automotive mechanics, facility maintenance teams, and general contractors are frustrated by their current taps and dies. It is hard to read the size, they must carry around multiple different-sized handles, and often the product breaks. We sought to change that.

Premium Features

The new taps and dies from Milwaukee boast 3 standout features that set them apart from conventional options. First, a black oxide coating has been applied to combat corrosion, ensuring the longevity of the tools. This coating enhances their durability and extends their lifespan, making them ideal for demanding metal applications. Second, the taps and dies feature the clearest markings available in the market, making size identification quick and easy. This clarity allows you to select the appropriate tool efficiently, saving time and reducing errors. Finally, precision machined threads to ensure accurate and clean threading, providing reliable results with every use.

Hex-LOK 2-IN-1 Handle:

Another standout component of Milwaukee’s new taps and dies is the Hex-LOK 2-in-1 handle. This handle design offers maximum leverage and control, allowing you to tackle tasks with ease. Its ergonomic grip and all-metal construction are optimized for smooth operation, minimizing user fatigue during prolonged use. The Hex-LOK 2-in-1 handle is compatible with 1″ hex dies and can also be paired with the Milwaukee tap collet, enabling threading of up to ½”. This innovative design allows you to switch effortlessly between internal and external threading, providing the most versatile threading solution. This also eliminates the need for carrying multiple handles, thus reducing the number of components you’re required to carry around on the job site and simplifying the workflow.

By addressing the longstanding limitations and frustrations associated with traditional tools in this category, Milwaukee is demonstrating their continued commitment to user-driven innovation. As a tool distributor and close partner with our customers, we hear these complaints all the time, and are happy to carry brands that improve their tools from the experience of their user.
