Combating Chemical Damage and Material Fatigue in Robotics: A Guide for Engineers


Masterflex Chemical Resistant Hoses for Reliable Robots

The Problem: Downtime Due to Hose Failure

Unexpected downtime caused by robot malfunction is a costly nightmare for any automation engineer. Traditional hoses often fail to meet the demanding conditions present in industrial environments. This can lead to:

  • Material fatigue: Chemical exposure, harsh environments, and mechanical stress can wear down hoses, leading to leaks and ruptures.
  • Reduced performance: Degraded hoses can hinder robot movement and precision, impacting production efficiency.
  • Increased maintenance: Frequent repairs and replacements due to hose failure increase overall operation costs.
