The Work Truck Show

There is more to mobile hydraulics than the industries involving vehicles that move about off the road like construction and agriculture.  On-highway mobile hydraulics makes up a significant share of mobile hydraulics.

On March 4-6, The Work Truck Show will be held at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.  It is organized by the NTEA, The Association for the Work Truck Industry.  Click here for more details.

It takes some interesting and sophisticated hydraulic systems to make work trucks work and that is why there are so many fluid power exhibitors at this year's show.  By attending the show, engineers and technicians will get a better grasp on how technology can make work trucks more efficient.

The Green Truck Summit is an alternative fuel-neutral conference featuring technical experts, government officials, industry leaders, and more experts and it will take place at the show.  More information can be found on the same NTEA website from the above link.

If this market is important to your company, why not plan to attend.

Who needs Tips?

Who needs Tips?  Probably everyone trying to improve their components, systems, machinery, and companies.  That is why we at Fluid Power World publish three Tips websites including:

Hose Assembly Tips is a great resource for specifications and explanations about hose, fittings, couplings, and all types of fluid connectors.  

Pneumatic Tips features pneumatic systems and components in their entirety including actuators, connectors, pumps, vacuum, and more.

Mobile Hydraulic Tips covers components, systems, design, and maintenance of all kinds of mobile equipment including construction, agricultural, mining and more.

I invite you to refer to our Tips sites often for up-to-date information on your area of specialty.  Feel free to send us press releases, product reviews, and case studies to post on our sites.

The content way

There are many ways to reach prospective buyers for your industrial components and related products.  Of course we offer printed magazines for excellent exposure to increase brand awareness.  Banner advertising works the same way to our digital audience.

E-newsletters and e-blasts send your sales message directly to prospective new customers with your sales message either embedded or as the sole message in the e-mail message.  These are very effective ways to deliver your message to our audience.

I have written about this before but I would like to call attention again tour Tech Tip e-Books.  I would consider this method of reaching prospects is the "content way."  We use content to grab and hold the attention of our audience with delivery of your company's specific engineering solutions.

These take some time to develop but they work well.  I would like to discuss this opportunity with you more.  Please contact me.

Offshore Technology Conference OTC 2015 and Fluid Power

On May 4-7, 2015 the 2015 OTC will once again dazzle its audiences with its enormous size and the large number of innovative devices and machinery used to explore, extract, and transport oil and gas from the ground to where it is used to power our world.

The latest projections from the National Fluid Power Association NFPA call for three years of growth in Oil & Gas Extraction with a 6.7% gain expected this year.  Fluid power systems, especially high-pressure hydraulics are used in the Offshore industry.  That is why I counted over 80 companies that qualify as providers of fluid power technology as exhibitors at this year's OTC Show.

The April 2015 Issue of Fluid Power World will feature a preview of the 2015 OTC Show with a review of the fluid-power-related exhibitors.  This is one of the biggest trade shows of the year featuring fluid power components, systems, machinery, and equipment.  We will also be following the event through our social media channels.

If your company is a supplier to the offshore market, consider advertising in our April issue and using our new Fluid Power World website.  Please contact me for details at  If your company buys equipment for this industry, consider attending OTC 2015.
