Complete Air Quality Solution for Automated and Robotic Welding Cells

The RH-Series Robotic and Automated Welding Hoods are the most comprehensive and cost-effective way to clean the air and help keep your employees safe and healthy. The space-saving, easy to maintain weld fume extraction hoods, quietly control and extract oily weld fume and smoke. Each unit provides filtration for an individual robotic weld cell that is controlled by a VFD that soft starts and helps maintain continuous airflow as the filters load.

Proven Technology

The ductless, space-saving and modular design of the RH-Series Robotic and Automated Welding Hoods allow for maximum flexibility during installation and changes. Industrial Maid’s advanced ductless design has the lowest fire risk in the industry. The welding fume extraction hoods draw air from each end, not directly above the welding zone, providing low inlet velocities and no direct path for sparks to reach the specially designed spark arrestor filters. Additionally, the units have a thermal shutoff switch to cut power in case of a thermal event. The RH-Series weld fume extraction hoods have three stages of filtration and a low air-to-cloth ratio to allow the filters to collect more weld smoke, dust, and particulate and ultimately extend the filter life. Filter service is by disposal, so no dust is handled from dump trays or drums. Lastly, there is no compressed air, so the units operate more cost-efficiently, and noise levels are lower.

Designed for you

Industrial Maid’s engineering team has over 50 years of manufacturing and service experience in high production automated and robotic welding environments for aerospace, agriculture, automotive, and other industries.

We understand the workflows, processes, and challenges you face in your manufacturing environment and have applied this knowledge to the design of the RH-Series Robotic and Automated Welding Hoods. The size of the weld fume extraction hood can be customized to fit directly over the weld cell. The hood can be mounted on stands, suspended, or mounted on automated crane systems. An optional dust-proof LED lighting kit illuminates the work area below. The RH-Series Hoods are easy to install, reconfigure, and are low maintenance. Energy consumption is a fraction of ducted and other systems with larger motors and compressed air. The net result of this thoughtful design is the safest, most-effective, and efficient system on the market with a significantly lower total cost of ownership.

Workplace Safety

Safety is built-in from the start. The design of Industrial Maid’s RH-Series hood systems benefits from over 30 years of experience from our Engineering staff and feedback from thousands of customers. With no ductwork, low inlet velocities, specially designed spark arrestors, and a thermal shutoff switch, the risk of a fire event is the lowest in the industry.

Easy Installation

Our ductless, modular Robotic and Automated Welding Hoods are faster and easier to install than traditional ducted systems. Because the units are ductless, it ‘s less expensive, time-intensive, and the installation won’t interfere with other infrastructure and equipment in your facilities.

Cost Savings

No ductwork is a significant savings upfront on labor and materials. As a result, our units can operate more efficiently with lower horsepower while maintaining high air exchange rates. The result is up to a 40% lower energy use than traditional ducted systems.

Space Savings

Our Robotic and Automated Welding Hoods are overhead and out of the way where they won’t impact floor space.

Low Maintenance

Everything is easily accessible for fast filter changes and maintenance – no special tools required. The filter design makes filter change-out quick and easy. And our filter service indicator lets you know when its time to change.

Quiet Operation

Each RH-Series Robotic and Automated Hood system operates between 63 – 72 dBA, which is similar to the sound level you would find in a shower or near a dishwasher. Additionally, each weld fume extraction hood has an optional silencer package that could reduce noise levels by an additional 3-5 dBA.


When you need to change your workspace or equipment configuration, Industrial Maid’s RH-Series Robotic and Automated Hood Systems are easy to move without any ductwork.

Industrial Maid has been helping customers provide clean, safe, and efficient work environments for more than 15 years. With thousands of customers across North America and beyond, our innovative products and services stand out. The RH-Series Robotic and Automated Welding Hoods are the safest and most cost-efficient and effective solution for welding demands in a high production environment.
