Milwaukee Tool is resetting the standard in pipe threading performance with the industry’s first cordless threading machine. The new MX FUEL Pipe Threading Machine harnesses the power of MX FUEL Equipment System’s* REDLITHIUM batteries to detach operators from power outlets on the job site, allowing threads to be made wherever its most convenient.
In addition to the improved design, this new cordless pipe threading machine enables the easiest transportation and fastest set-up to clean up, even in remote sections of the job site.
“Through our relentless user research, we found clear inefficiencies and significant opportunities to improve job site workflow on jobs requiring large amounts of threading,” said John Karl Jarzombek, product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Historically, corded machines have forced operators to set-up and stay near a power source, wasting time walking back and forth on the job site.”
With the MX FUEL Pipe Threading Machine, Milwaukee Tool has freed operators from a power source while also optimizing the design for onsite transportation to enable contractors to move the machine with them as they work.
“The durable job site cart makes it easier than ever to thread at each point of install or remote areas of the job site and having a self-contained oil reservoir eliminates the need to move messy bucket oilers separate from the machine,” added Jarzombek. “All of these innovations ultimately provide operators increased efficiency and the most productive onsite threading experience.”
The MX FUEL Pipe Threading Machine comes equipped with the new Milwaukee NPT Pipe Threading Die Head with Micro-Adjust, enabling the easiest, most controlled die adjustments and the auto release mechanism controls the thread length. The pipe threading machine is ideal for use with Milwaukee’s new line of Universal Pipe Threading Dies and compatible other universal style dies available.
For easy transportation, the MX FUEL Pipe Threading Machine features a collapsible cart, built with gas springs to assist the tool up to working height and the integrated wheels allow for easy transportation over uneven surfaces. When moving the machine, the self-contained oil reservoir keeps oil within the basin and eliminates the need to drain the oil. Additionally, the reservoir minimizes the mess created by the threading process by removing the need for a bucket oiler, providing the cleanest threading experience available.
For jobs requiring threading and grooving, the machine’s rear hammer chuck enables a quick transition and connection of roll grooving attachments without teardown or use of additional adapters. Milwaukee’s pipe threading machine reduces set up and clean up time to under one minute.
Once set up on site, the pipe threading machine provides the power to thread up to 2″ black iron pipe, stainless steel, rigid metal conduit (RMC) and more. When paired with the included MX FUEL REDLITHIUM XC406 battery packs, the threading machine allows for all day runtime, delivering up to (140) cut, reamed, and threaded 3/4” pipe ends per pack. Once the job is complete, the machine can be stored upright without spilling, reducing the overall storage footprint.
The MX FUEL Pipe Threading Machine joins Milwaukee’s pipe threading tools as another industry first. The machine eliminates inefficient steps of onsite threading and allows the operator to streamline their workflow. The new MX FUEL Pipe Threading Machine is fully compatible with the entire MX FUEL Equipment System and is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that truly delivers breakthrough solutions for users.
Milwaukee recently also introduced its new line of Universal Pipe Threading Dies, designed for consistent quality threads in pipes. The pipe threading dies are stamped with size markings and alignment numbers for easy identification and allow for quick installation when placed into the die head, maximizing productivity.
Offered in alloy, high speed, and high speed for stainless, the Milwaukee Universal Pipe Threading Dies are ideal for use with the Milwaukee NPT Pipe Threading Die Head w/ Micro-Adjust and the MX FUEL Pipe Threading Machine, as well as compatible with other universal die heads.
*The MX FUEL Equipment System: This groundbreaking cordless system revolutionizes the light equipment market by delivering the performance, run-time, and durability demanded by the trades without the hazards associated with emissions, noise, vibration, and the frustrations of gas maintenance.
