INNOVATION & PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Since its founding in 1924, Milwaukee Electric Tool has been an industry leader in power tool innovation. Just some of the innovative products from Milwaukee include the Tilt-Lok, the world’s first adjustable handle circular saw; the BodyGrip® Router with an exclusive tactile grip and adjustable handstrap, and the Sawzall - the Hatchet® Reciprocating Saw with 6-position rotatable handle.

The Milwaukee V28™ lithium-ion cordless tool system, was yet another new revolution in the power tool industry. As the first to incorporate lithium-ion battery technology in its cordless power tools, Milwaukee’s V28 battery delivers up to twice the run-time and 40-50% more power than an 18-volt NiCd battery of the same weight.

More recently Milwaukee innovation continued with the M12 and M18 cordless system of power tools which are precisely designed to deliver the power, speed, torque and durability necessary for diverse professional applications.

From customer input research, CAD design, in-house extensive life and reliability testing, rapid prototype development and field testing to final product launch, Milwaukee prides itself on its reputation for delivering innovative, quality power tools and accessories.
