Press Tools & Crimp Heads

The pressing process is achieved using press tools with a range of jaw attachments that vary according to the fitting and pipe diameters.

Various types of press tools are commercially available:

  • Electromechanical tools, either battery or mains-powered versions (18V or 240 V), may be used for the full range of diameters
  • Electrohydraulic tools are used primarily for larger diameters, from 76.1 to 108 mm.
  • Hand operated hydraulic tools are also available for critical environments.

The Europress System can be used with a wide variety of press tools provided that these are equipped with Europress approved “M”-profile jaws. Please refer to the technical department to ensure the proposed presstool is suitable for the Europress system.

Improved ergonomics and comfort

Our press tools incorporate a 2-component plastichousing with soft inlay, which gives the feeling of apleasant, secure grip, prevents slipping, and avoidspressure points in the grip area. The optimised centre of gravity makes work effortless – even when continuously assembling overhead joints.

Press Heads

Ask for the full catalogue, but press heads and chains are engineered for sizes 22, 28, 35, 42, 54, 76, 89, 108, 140 and 168.
