Applications of technical hoses and connection systems

The function of an entire machine or system can depend on the inconspicuous hose component. Only the right hose can ensure that a medium gets from A to B reliably, permanently, unchanged, at a good temperature and efficiently.

The requirement to convey or extract solid, liquid or gaseous substances arises for many companies in the industrial environment: in the processing of wood, metal, textiles or paper as well as in the production of microchips or electronic assemblies, in the production of machines for the wood, metal, textile or paper industries - or in fully automatic coffee machines.

Strictly speaking, our hoses are everywhere!

Plant and mechanical engineering

For many decades, our hoses and connection solutions have been securing essential functions in important machines and plants. As the first hose manufacturer ever, we also offer digital hose systems with integrated lifecycle tracking functions(AMPIUS®) that can be read out via an app.
