System press tools

For all Viega press systems from DN10 - DN100

Viega system press tools can be used with all metallic Viega press systems.

The tested and proven system press machines Pressgun 5 and Pressgun Picco are equipped with the latest lithium ion technology, the highest battery capacity combined with optimal cold resistance. A power pack is also available.

The system press machines Pressgun 5 and Pressgun Picco are equipped with innovative safety technology and have an LED status indication.

The rotatable press head on the Pressgun 5 and the Pressgun Picco as well as the low weight allow easy handling. The innovative Viega press rings with hinged adapter jaw allow pressings in hard-​to-​access spaces as well as in shafts and pre-​wall constructions.

The geometry and press contour of the system press jaws, system press chains and system press rings are optimally harmonised with the press connectors.

Service points for system press tools and press jaws authorised by Viega offer a high level of system reliability.

The functional safety, and permanent tightness of the Viega press systems depends largely on the functional and operational safety of the Viega system press tools, i.e. Viega press machine plus Viega system press jaw, ring, chain and (hinged) adapter jaw. The Viega system press tools have been specifically designed for and adapted to the installation of the Viega press connector systems. Viega does not check if these system press tools can be used for the pressing of systems from other manufacturers. Especially we cannot make any statement as to whether in this case permanently tight connections can be created.

Maintenance tips for Viega system press tools:
  • System press machines
Viega press tools achieve a pre-​set pressure for the pressing procedure. The required operational safety requires a leak-​free hydraulic system, however natural wear and tear on such heavily used components is unavoidable. To ensure the continuous operating safety and reliability of the system press machines, they must be maintained regularly. This normally takes place by sending to the service points named by Viega or on location promotions through service points at the trade wholesaler.

  • System press jaws, chains, rings and (hinged) adapter jaws
It is strongly recommended that the system press jaws, system press chains and systems press rings are inspected together with the system press machines. During the procedure, wear parts are replaced, press jaw contours are revised and the system press jaws, system press chains and system press rings are readjusted. Since 2012, Viega system press jaws, system press chains and system press rings have been provided with maintenance stickers, which show the next recommended inspection date.
Example: next service 3rd quarter of 2020. New stickers after successful servicing by a Viega service point.
