Part of the latest generation of Viega press tools, the compact Pressgun Picco 6 Plus makes press connection installation simple, the company says, even in the most confined or awkward spaces. It also features Bluetooth connectivity and app integration for improved safety, security, and streamlined tool management. 

The Viega Pressgun Picco 6 Plus has a new inline configuration and has been designed to operate as a natural extension of the arm. At just 1.6kg, it is 700g lighter than the previous generation Pressgun Picco and allows comfortable one-handed operation. Engineered for installation flexibility and ease of use, it has a 180° rotating head so connections can be pressed at any angle. 

The Pressgun Picco 6 Plus delivers a 24kN pressing force and is compatible with metallic Viega press connectors in dimensions from 12 to 35mm, Megapress thick-walled steel tube connectors from 3/8 to 3/4" and plastic and multilayer composite pipe systems from 12 to 40mm. 

Among the key innovations included in the latest generation of Viega press tools is the smart connectivity. Pressgun Picco 6 Plus connects to a smartphone or other connected device via Bluetooth and allows additional functionality through the Viega Tool Services app. Customers can view full tool information and the current status at any time, including battery level and the total number of pressings since the last service. 

The Viega Tool Services app also allows the pressing mode to be changed, with the choice of Viega AutoCycle, the default setting, which presses the connectors in one action, and Viega SmartCycle, which presses the connection in two stages to allow inspection prior to completing the pressing.
