Milwaukee expands cutting solutions with utility blade program
General Purpose Utility Blades deliver up to 3X longer life
Milwaukee Tool continues to deliver user driven solutions and rapidly expand its Hand Tool offering with the introduction of several new Utility Blades. Made of micro carbide deposited metal, the new General Purpose Utility Blades deliver up to 3X longer life than standard carbon blades and are engineered with optimized blade geometries to deliver maximum cutting performance in a variety of applications.
“During our field research process, professional contractors challenged us to deliver a utility blade solution that matched the quality and durability of the Milwaukee FASTBACK™ Utility Knife,” says Ryan Schwoegler, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool Corp. “We were up to the challenge and delivered a utility blade that offers significantly longer life than standard carbon utility blades and drives greater jobsite productivity.”
Along with General Purpose Utility Blades, which maximize cutting performance and durability in most common jobsite materials, the new Milwaukee utility blade offering will include three unique blades that are optimized for specific applications: Hook Utility Blades, Drywall Utility Blades and Carton Utility Blades.
The Milwaukee® Hook Utility Blade is able to deliver more pull force than competitive hook blades with an optimized geometry to cut roofing, synthetic wrap, insulation and other building materials. The Milwaukee® Drywall Utility Blade features optimized grind angles for 2X the sharpness and improved cutting precision in drywall and sheet material. Lastly, the Milwaukee® Carton Utility Blade features a round point to minimize the risk of cutting injury and protect contents in cartons and packaged goods.
Coming in June 2013, the new utility blades will be available in various pack size options. All bulk packs will include a patent pending blade dispenser for easy access to the utility blades and a safe storage solution for used blades. With a focus on user driven innovation, Milwaukee® Hand Tools deliver game changing solutions to real jobsite challenges. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, the new products confirm Milwaukee’s commitment to best-in-class durability.
