Geberit has introduced three new tools for use with Mapress and Mepla pressfitting pipework. The new generation of Novopress Comfort-Line pressing tools is ergonomically designed to ensure that installers can take a firm, safe grip. There are battery- and mains-powered tools, all with electronic monitoring of the jaw-locking bolt and a visual error indicator for greater operational safety. An electronic logbook enables precise and quick analysis if errors occur.

The new tools press joints more quickly, and they have automatic sequence control. Calibration is now required every two years, compared with annually before. Joints can be pressed on metal pipes up to 54 mm and multi-layer up to 75 mm.
