Milwaukee Tool has announced 125 new threading solutions for construction professionals, automotive technicians, service electricians and maintenance crews with their new taps and dies. These taps and dies feature machined threads for creating and repairing threads on various metal applications.
Taps and Dies
“With the launch of Milwaukee taps and dies, we delivered on our promise to disrupt the market,” said Brad Urban, director of product marketing. “We saw that very little innovation has been made to taps and dies. 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.”
The new taps and dies have three features: black oxide coating to fight against corrosion, markings for size identification and machined threads for threading.
Hex-LOK 2-in-1 Handle
The Milwaukee Hex-LOK 2-in-1 handle provides leverage and control. The handle’s ergonomic grip and all-metal design are optimized for operation. The Hex-LOK 2-in-1 handle combines the ability to thread with 1-in. hex dies, as well as taps up to ½ in. when paired with the Milwaukee tap collet. With this 2-in-1 handle design, users can swap between internal or external threading providing a versatile threading solution. This also helps reduce the number of total components carried on the job.
