Milwaukee® Introduces New Torpedo Levels with the Industry’s Strongest Magnets

MILWAUKEE, WI– Milwaukee Tool continues to deliver unprecedented innovation for electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and mechanical contractor professionals with the introduction of the Milwaukee® 10” Die Cast Block and Compact Billet Torpedo Levels. Milwaukee’s Amplified Rare Earth Magnets deliver over 2X the magnetic strength of industry competitors, giving users a more secure hold and confidence in measurements when working overhead or on lifts, scaffolds & ladders. Both of the new Torpedo Levels are designed from the ground-up to provide premium features that increase productivity for MEP installation, service professionals and the building trades.

“Torpedo levels are unbeatable for use in tight spaces and confined access points on the jobsite. Unfortunately, today’s electrical, HVAC, plumbing, and MRO professionals have been limited to options that don’t provide a complete feature set for their needs” said Ryan Schwoegler, Group Product Manager. “The new Milwaukee® torpedo levels are designed to perform in challenging environments and provide a dedicated feature set for measurement during slope, metalworking, pipe fitting, and overhead installation applications.  Our user-focus & commitment to industry leading performance and durability will propel expansion in the layout category and we will continue to develop premium, innovative solutions for the professional trades.”

Key to these new torpedoes is Amplified Rare Earth Magnet Technology that utilizes magnetic circuits to redirect and focus the magnetic field, and provides industry-leading holding power. To further enhance its performance, each torpedo is also engineered for key user applications with a range of features that provide the very best productivity and utility:

Milwaukee® 10” Die Cast Block Torpedo Level

A common frustration with adjustable vials on current competitive torpedo levels is that many don’t lock into place when a user wants to measure an angle. The new Milwaukee® 10” Die Cast Block Torpedo Level is designed with a new-to-world Locking 360° Adjustable Vial that secures the vial in place so users can identify and repeat any angle needed on the jobsite. The locking dial protects the accuracy of the vial whether it’s taken in and out of pockets or pouches.

For the very best readability and visual accuracy, the new Die Cast Block Torpedo Level features SHARPSITE™ Vial Technology. Black bands on the vials create high contrast edges that make the magnified bubble easier to read and deliver precision-grade accuracy. Built to withstand challenging jobsite conditions, SHARPSITE™ vials are engineered with high-impact acrylic which delivers 10X more durability than the standard competitive block vials and protects the accuracy over the life of the level.

Milwaukee® Compact Billet Torpedoes

The new Compact Billet Torpedoes include a 2” Dual Pitch Vial – the largest and most visible pitch vial in the industry – and maximizes the viewing area in slope, trench and pipe installations. The vials can measure slope in 1/8” and ¼” per foot in any direction. All Milwaukee vials utilize reinforced high-impact acrylic which provides enhanced durability and long life accuracy in all measurement positions.

Available in both imperial and metric, the Milwaukee Compact Billet Torpedo features a laser-etched ruled edge for quick measurements on material and a built-in weld clearance allows the user to measure over pipe joints to ensure accurate slope, level, and plumb positions. A slim, tapered design makes it easy to store in storage bags, tool belts or pockets.

The new 10” Die Cast Block and Compact Billet Torpedo Levels are designed to meet the needs on the jobsite and are backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Milwaukee will continue to grow in the layout & measurement space by providing premium, pro-driven solutions that offer industry-leading performance, innovative features and increased durability.
