Discover the future of smart manufacturing with Masterflex. Learn how our innovative hoses and solutions can be used in the Smart Factory of tomorrow. Get to know the world of AMPIUS® that optimizes your production process and enables efficiency gains.
Digital production machines and peripherals, AI concepts and Big Data are topics that move our time. Masterflex is also dedicated to these topics and not only in our digitalized production. We were the first supplier to launch the AMPIUS® digital hose systems and to develop a hose management system. Immerse yourself in the world of our Smart Factory and learn how the innovative AMPIUS® can revolutionize your production processes. Learn more about our digital hose technology, its intelligent networking and its ability to capture real-time data to increase your efficiency.
The Masterflex Group is the first hose manufacturer ever to launch a complete operator system, consisting of hose, sensor technology, engineering and data processing: Under the name AMPIUS® , the Masterflex Group offers hose systems with integrated life cycle tracking functions as well as a matching app.
The AMPIUS® app can be used to automatically read out the product signature of the hose system, which in a basic variant is equipped with a digital interface as standard. In this way, technical data or "life cycle data" such as the production or shipping date can be queried or requirements inquiries can be made at the push of a button.
Digitization opens up completely new possibilities in terms of product design and optimization. In the future, it will also be possible to call up information on wear, abrasion, temperature, flow rate and many other parameters for suitably equipped products.
The possibilities for digitization are not limited to specific hose series or specific areas of application. In principle, networkable and smart variants and options can be implemented for the entire Masterflex hose range and adapted to the specific requirements of Industry 4.0.

We invested in Industry 4.0-capable production facilities at an early stage. With noticeably expanded data collection and new networking, we were able to significantly increase the transparency of our production processes. Thanks to permanent and seamless monitoring of production, we are able to improve overall quality in the manufacturing process as well as automation and flexibility.
Several years ago, for example, we began working with a suitably qualified mechanical engineering partner to develop the world's first fully networked production plant for profile-extruded high-tech polyurethane hoses (spiral hoses).
A fully digitized production plant like the one we have will not exist again in this form. The prerequisite for this is complete digitization of all sensors and actuators (drive elements) as well as their networking. This is the first time that such a complex extrusion line has been implemented in this way.
