Engineered for robot smiles!
Say goodbye to downtime and hello to optimized efficiency with our customized, high-performance hoses designed specifically for the demands of robotics and automation. Get the precision and durability your robots deserve.
No two robot jobs are the same, and we get that. Our team of engineers and technicians work closely with you to understand your unique needs. We then design and build hoses that are tough enough to handle any challenge, from high temperatures to tight bends (view our Engineering Services workflow). The result? Happier robots, smoother workflows, and better results for you.
Curious to learn more? Scroll down to see the different types of hoses we offer and how they can make your robots smile (not literally, but they’ll be working better!). You’ll also find out why even well-maintained robots can sometimes sputter and stall – and what you can do to prevent it.

Masterflex Group Engineering Services: Preserving Performance in High-Temperature Robotics
The demanding environment of industrial welding presents significant challenges for robotic efficiency and longevity. Heat and sparks can quickly compromise conventional hoses, leading to performance degradation, downtime, and costly repairs.
Identifying the Thermal Overload
Our expert intervention commenced with a thorough inspection of the Robot and its operating environment. The diagnosis was clear: thermal overload caused by inadequate hose capabilities. The existing hoses were succumbing to heat and sparks, jeopardizing system integrity and productivity.
Tailored Solutions for Demanding Environments
Understanding the specific requirements of welding applications, we proposed customized high-performance hoses designed to excel in harsh conditions. These hoses offer:
- Enhanced temperature resistance: XFlame hydro® Hose withstands elevated temperatures without degradation, ensuring consistent performance.
- Superior spark protection: Advanced construction, exemplified by the Master-Clip SPARK XL Hose, effectively prevents damage from flying sparks, safeguarding the robot’s sensitive components.
- Improved flexibility and durability: Engineered materials ensure optimal flexibility for unrestricted movement while maintaining structural integrity, minimizing the risk of wear and tear.
Through open communication and collaboration with the engineer and robot manufacturer, we implemented the customized hose solutions. This resulted in:
- Enhanced robot performance: Reduced downtime and improved efficiency facilitated by reliable hoses impervious to heat and sparks.
- Increased productivity: Streamlined operations with minimized disruptions contributed to higher production output.
- Extended equipment lifespan: Durable hoses protected the robot from thermal damage, ensuring long-term functionality and cost savings.
By addressing the specific needs of the welding application, Masterflex Group Engineering Services transformed the performance of the Robot. Our customized high-performance hoses provide a valuable solution for industrial robotics, ensuring optimal results even in the most demanding environments.
“Our robotic hose solutions push the boundaries of durability by meticulously combining advanced materials, optimised geometries, and robust structures. This synergy ensures they excel under repetitive bending cycles, demanding tensile forces, and twisting stresses, exceeding the limitations of conventional hoses.“
