Hose Safety

At Fluid Power World, we are aware of the importance of hose safety.  We held a webinar earlier in the year about proper hose assemblies and we have written about it as well.

Here is a link  to our Hose Assembly Tips website where we have posted about the hose safety initiative by NAHAD called the Hose Safety Institute.  We have had a good working relationship with NAHAD since we launched Fluid Power World and Hose Assembly Tips in 2014.

If your company has some success stories regarding hose safety either from the prospective of supplier or user, please send me that information so that we can post it on our website and use the content in our e-newsletter, also titled Hose Assembly Tips.

AISTech 2016

The David L. Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh is the site of the 2016 AISTech formerly known as the Iron & Steel Show.  Even though the industry continues to struggle, this is a really good trade show.  It is held in a very scenic location on right on the three rivers.

For more information about the show, visit their website.  I counted some 27 fluid power related exhibitors at the event making it a significant fluid power event.  

The steel making industry remains a large market for both hydraulic and pneumatic technology with many of these applications and products on display at the show.  This remains a somewhat difficult year for fluid power sales but the exhibitors at the event remain optimistic about their market share in the industry.

If you are interested in subscribing to our magazine or websites, let me know that too.  If you would just like to give me an idea about what to publish next, that would be interesting.
