New Milwaukee Shockwave Impact Duty Step Bits

Milwaukee Tool is launching new step bits optimized for use with impact drivers! Made in the USA, and according to them, these bits are the longest-lasting and fastest-cutting impact step bits available. Several sizes are available and they launch September 2018. More information is in the press release below.

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool is proud to announce it has engineered the most durable and fastest-cutting impact step bits on the market. Made in the USA, the new Shockwave™ Impact Duty™ Step Bits are designed to deliver best-in-class performance in impact drivers and the versatility to be used in drills. The combination of an optimized SHOCKZONE™ shank, Titanium Aluminum Nitride coating, and Rapid Strike™ tip make these step bits the longest-lasting and fastest-cutting impact step bits available.

“In 2013, Milwaukee Tool was the very first to introduce a line of Step Drill Bits optimized for cordless drills in high speed, and these bits have continued to dominate the jobsite ever since. As impact drivers continue to become one of the most prevalent tools on the jobsite, it was imperative that we extend our leadership in step bits by designing solutions specifically optimized for use in these tools,” said James Grow, Director of Product Marketing for Milwaukee Tool. “Unlike the other impact-rated step bits available today, our new Shockwave™ Impact Duty™ Step Bits don’t ask users to choose between speed and durability. Through a unique combination of advanced engineered features, these step bits allow users to have the very best cutting experience across the board.”

Designed to deliver maximum life, each step bit is optimized with a ¼” hex shank and SHOCKZONE™ to absorb torque in all applications. Together these features provide the industry’s most durable shank, helping to eliminate premature shank failure. A Titanium Aluminum Nitride (TiAlN) coating across the entire geometry of the bit also helps deliver 5x longer life.

Recognizing that many step bits fail at the tip, Milwaukee® designed these bits with a Rapid Strike™ tip to prevent walking and deliver fast, accurate starts that generate less heat. This Rapid Strike™ tip, paired with a dual spiral flute design, allow the bits to produce 2X faster holes.

For user convenience and accuracy, each bit also has laser-engraved reference marks that are easily visible while drilling.

With the introduction of these new Shockwave™ Impact Duty™ Step Bits, Milwaukee Tool continues to demonstrate its commitment to delivering user-driven accessory solutions that save time and increase productivity on the jobsite.
