Pressfitting SystemsConstant performance quality, minimum effort, rapid installation


Celebrating 25 years of Pressfitting
This year we celebrate an important birthday, the 25th anniversary of Pressfitting!

In 1999 Raccorderie Metalliche began the production of press systems after being awarded the DVGW certification, producing in fact an epochal turning point in the history of the company, which since then made pressfitting systems its core business.
Raccorderie Metalliche is committed to continuing to be a benchmark in the pressfitting market in the future, continuing with the same determination and dedication proved up to now.

What about
Pressfitting Systems

The most effective and efficient way to make an installation.

Pressfitting is a joining between pipes with fittings fitted through electro-mechanical pressing machines. Pressing permanently deforms the fitting on the pipe thus leading to a perfect mechanical joint, while the O-Ring provides for the hydraulic tightening connection. Pressing provides for a constant quality joining, easily reproduced and with a minimum physical effort by the operator.

Why to use it

Safety, speed, reliability.
  • Copper brazing is the most widely used method in the sanitary and plumbing sector. It asks for expertise and skills, long execution time and involves hot works and free flames. In case of maintenance or refurbishing, generally it is necessary to work in contact with inflammable materials, where the fire risk is very high.
  • An alternative to brazing is the use of plastic pipes, adhesively jointed. No risk of fires connected to welding but cement resins need hours to dry, according to the room temperature as well.
  • Pressfitting stands out with many benefits. It lowers the execution times and it is safer: jointing is carried out at room temperature, with no glues, resins or free flames; the operator works in safety, even when in contact with inflammable materials. Pressing asks for 5 seconds for small diameters and up to 40 seconds for bigger diameters, consistently cutting installation times. What is more, fittings once pressed can be tested thus avoiding cost and downtimes. A 25 to 50% installation time reduction as reported by the company installers, on plants using big diameter pipes.
  • Pressfitting provides for the same benefits even when compared to threaded joints, as it is free of dirt and cuts depending on threading process. No need to prepare the fittings, with hemp or Teflon as any joint comes with factory mounts O-Rings.

How to use it

Simple steps for reliable and defined results.

The electromechanical tool press the joint on the pipe through its jaws. The connection is permanent and not reversible. Pressing parameters such as pressure strengh and time. Battery operated tools contribute to reduced weights and furthermore to semplifly  the installer operations.


Where to use it

Many different applications, result reliability.

Pressfitting is a unique method to make installations inside different sectors, civil and industrial as well. Among the house walls, for example, Pressfitting can be used for potable water pipes, heating and gas. At the industrial level, Pressfitting is suitable for compressed air, cooling/heating, process water and fire-fighting systems.
