Milwaukee introduced their brand-new M18 FUEL Controlled Torque Impact Wrenches with TORQUE-SENSE technology. There are multiple similarities between each of these impact wrenches, such as TORQUE-SENSE technology, customizable reporting, and labor saving capabilities. This innovation will change how utility-solar job sites are built, making them more efficient, reliable, and saving on labor costs. The following impact wrenches will be introduced:
The M18 FUEL 3/8″ Controlled Torque Compact Impact Wrench w/ TORQUE-SENSE (3060-20)
The M18 FUEL 1/2″ Controlled Torque Compact Impact Wrench w/ TORQUE-SENSE (3061-20)
The M18 FUEL 1/2″ Controlled Torque Compact Impact Wrench w/ TORQUE-SENSE (3061P-20)
The M18 FUEL 1/2″ Controlled Mid-Torque Impact Wrench (3062-20)
The M18 FUEL 1/2″ Controlled Mid-Torque Impact Wrench w/ Pin Detent (3062P-20)
The accessories for these new impact wrenches include the M18 FUEL Controlled Torque Compact Impact Wrench Protective Boot (49-16-3060), the M18 FUEL Controlled Mid-Torque Impact Wrench Protective Boot (49-16-3062), the M18 FUEL Controlled Torque Compact Impact Wrench Carrying Case (48-53-3060), and finally the M18 FUEL Controlled Mid-Torque Impact Wrench Carrying Case (48-53-3062).
With the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act, the clean energy, power utility, electrical, and general contracting trades have been in a frenzy to meet the growing demand for utility-scale solar projects. Milwaukee recognized the need for a game-changing tool that would not only streamline the installation process but also guarantee precision and repeatability. Thus, the M18 FUEL Controlled Torque Impact Wrenches with TORQUE-SENSE were born.
Enhanced Torque Repeatability
One of the standout features of these impact wrenches is their industry-leading torque repeatability. Designed an tested specifically for the solar industry, these tools provide a level of confidence in installations that was previously unmatched. The M18 FUEL Controlled Torque Compact Impact Wrenches have a torque range of 50-150 ft.-lbs., where the M18 FUEL Controlled Mid-Torque Impact Wrenches have a torque range of 50-250 ft.-lbs. With repeatability maintained within ± 15% on the job site, users can rest assured that their installations will meet the highest standards of precision.
Customizable Reporting for Confidence
What truly sets the M18 FUEL Controlled Torque Impact Wrenches apart is the inclusion of customizable reporting. This feature empowers utility-scale solar project teams with the ability to monitor and track torque data. This data guarantees accurate installations and allows for real-time adjustments, overcoming variations caused by parts, operators, tools, and other factors.
At the heart of this innovation is TORQUE-SENSE technology. This proprietary system incorporates two sensors working in tandem with a torque control algorithm developed using machine learning. The result is a tool that adapts to its application, ensuring precise torque delivery every time. Users no longer need to rely on guesswork; instead, they can take advantage of the simple TORQUE-SENSE setup process via ONE-KEY.
One of the most impressive benefits of the M18 FUEL Controlled Torque Impact Wrenches with TORQUE-SENSE is the potential for labor savings. Users can avoid the complicated two-step torque process by setting up and auditing properly. This process includes using an impact wrench and then a click wrench. This tool saves a lot of money, up to $454,000 for every 100MW installation, making it both innovative and cost-effective.
Innovations like these are important for meeting our energy needs efficiently and sustainably as demand for clean energy grows. Milwaukee Tool has once again proven itself as an industry leader, pushing boundaries and setting new standards in cordless fastening technology. The M18 FUEL Controlled Torque Compact Impact Wrenches are set to ship this October and the M18 FUEL Controlled Mid-Torque Impact Wrenches are set to ship this December but all of these new impact wrenches are available right now for pre-sale at Ohio Power Tool!
