Sealing and Filtration

Would you agree that two of the biggest concerns with fluid power systems is keeping the fluid, oil or air, clean and keeping it from leaking?  Most fluid power experts would probably agree with that.  While sealing and filtration are not perfect sciences, we do have advanced technology to accomplish the goals of clean and leak free systems.

That is why we developed our new website, Sealing & Contamination Control Tips in 2016, to address these concerns.  All of the content on this new website is devoted to the questions of how to make hydraulic and pneumatic systems cleaner and more leak free.

If you are a system designer or maintenance professional, please take a look at our website for solutions to any questions about these two topics.  If your company makes seals, filters, or any components that accomplish the goals of cleaner and tighter systems, please share your information with our audience.  Just send your content to me and I will see that it gets posted on our Sealing & Contamination Control Tips website.

In 2017, we will be launching our new e-newsletter with the same name.  This e-newsletter will share the information presented on our website.  This would be a great place for advertising your products also.  Please contact me for more information.

Attention all fluid power marketers!  Fluid Power World magazine will be hosting our Annual Fluid Power Technology Conference in Milwaukee at the Milwaukee School of Engineering on May 16-17, 2017.

Our second annual event promises to build on our success of last year and offer an even greater opportunity for marketers to share, present, and meet prospective new customers.  This seminar-based conference provides booth space and a stage presentation for all exhibitors/sponsors.

Every fluid power component supplier offers solutions to design and maintenance situations across many different markets including construction machinery, agricultural equipment, machine tools, automation, medical, and more.  The Fluid Power Technology Conference gives you the platform to display your products and explain them from the stage also to users and designers in these very markets.

This two-day event brings engineers, maintenance specialists, and supply chain professionals together to learn and expand their fluid power competency.  It is also a fun event with breakfast, lunch, and a cocktail hour.  If you have not been to the Milwaukee School of Engineering, you will experience an environment where fluid power is at the forefront of the learning experience.

Your participation will be simple with a 10 by 10 foot exhibit space that you can easily fill with your products and solutions.  Your 30-minute presentation will stimulate interest in your company and products that can be nurtured at your booth.

Please contact me with any questions at 408-769-1188 or and I can help you to plan for a very successful two days at the 2017 Fluid Power Technology Conference.  Your participation will help to make it great!

Now it seems close ...

Three years seems like a long time, but it is not.  It seems like yesterday that I attended the 2014 IFPE Show in Las Vegas.  Guess what?  It is almost time for the 2017 IFPE Show and that three year period has flown by.

The largest display of fluid power technology will be featured in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from March 7th through the 11th.  Fluid Power World will be there taking part in this huge event at booth S-83257 in that South Hall.

Our editors will be circulating the show floor looking for great editorial content from the exhibitors that we will be publishing in coming issues.  Our videographers will be shooting awesome video that we will be sharing on our website and e-newsletters in 2017.

We are looking forward to a fabulous event in Las Vegas in March.  We hope to see you there!

Only a few days left

In the magazine business, this is a very important time of the year.  While many advertisers have made their reservations and booked their advertising space for the year, some companies are still working to get their marketing budgets finalized and space booked for 2017.

For Fluid Power World and Design World, this is an especially important time because our Design World Leadership issue will be published in January!

Our January Leadership issue is an extra special issue because it includes our profile section.  Every advertiser has the opportunity to extend their marketing message by including a full-page profile in this issue.  

This feature gives our audience a further insight into the products and solutions offered by our advertisers.  Additionally, our readers vote on the top provider of the year and that company is award our Leadership Award for the year.

If your company is on the fence about advertising, don't delay, we only have until the end of the week/year for your reservations.  Please contact me for assistance.

I have found that LinkedIn is a very useful tool in getting and staying connected with business contacts.  You may have received an invitation from me recently or found that I have followed your company?

If so, I hope that you will accept my invitation.  As Publisher of Fluid Power World magazine and digital network, my specialty is providing my clients the best means for connecting with their customers and prospects through the many media options that we offer.

Connecting by LinkedIn allows me to stay in touch with key contacts while sharing information about our media that might be useful to them.  If I have not yet reached out, please send me an invite to connect and we can use this service very effectively to share information

Attention IFPE Exhibitors

As an exhibitor in the upcoming IFPE Show being held in Las Vegas in March, I invite you to utilize our special media opportunities to promote your booth and your presence at the big show!  We have a great package of opportunities that are outlined in the attachment.

Three integrated media packages are available for your company to make the most of your IFPE 2017 experience.  Our Gold Package offers the most with full-page ads in both Fluid Power World and Design World along with an IFPE preview e-newsletter sponsorship, two types of videos, web impressions, Tweets, and more.

This package will give your company an optimal preview of your presence at IFPE and invite customers and prospects to visit your booth and learn more about your products and solutions.  I recommend this package to take advantage of an improving market and the biggest show in three years, the largest display of fluid power technology in North America.

We also are offering our Silver and Bronze packages as well.  At very minimum, please consider an ad in our February Show Issue.  The closing date for ad space reservations is January 20, 2017, which is not too far away.  Please give me call if you have any questions. 408-769-1188

Let’s make 2017 a great year!
