2016 Fluid Power Technology Conference

You won't have to hear from me encouraging you to attend the 2016 Fluid Power Technology Conference as is is just about over.  It was a fun and very informative first event for Fluid Power World magazine and digital network.

We had about 130 people in attendance at our inaugural conference and the content was fantastic.  You can still refer to our website Fluid Power Technology Conference for details on all of the presentations.

The event started on June 21 with an opening keynote session presented by Aleksandar Egelja, Engineering Manager - Advanced Engineering, Caterpillar.  It was closed by a keynote from Tom Wanke of the Fluid Power Institute at MSOE.  His topic was Importance of Contamination Control in Hydraulic Systems.

In between there were 19 excellent sessions presented by our sponsors and exhibitors, as well as educators at MSOE,  and our own contributing editor, Carl Dyke of CD Industrial Group.  The second day of the event was kicked off with a keynote presentation by Tom Price of Price Engineering titled Modern Efficiencies, Technical Advances, and Sustainability in Fluid Power.

I thank all of our presenters, sponsors, attendees, and all of the fine people at MSOE for making this event a big success.  We will be announcing plans for our next event soon.

So excited!!!

Aside from the fact that the Cleveland Cavaliers are the new NBA Champions, we are also very excited for the start of the 2016 Fluid Power Technical Conference taking place at the Milwaukee School of Engineering on June 21 and 22.  The podium is set for our first speaker tomorrow.

From this podium, lots of great fluid power content will be conveyed to a very interested audience of engineering and mechanical specialists.  They will fill the seats to learn more about various aspects of fluid power technology.


You still have time to attend.  For more information, visit our FPTC website.  You can register onsite.

More pneumatic solutions, this time vacuum

I want to direct your attention to a really great article edited by Ken Korane in our May issue of Fluid Power World.  The article is titled A Lego-like pneumatic solution for customized machines and the article was contributed by the manufacturer Schmalz, Inc.

Vacuum is a special area of pneumatic technology and we cover it in our magazine and on our websites Fluid Power World and Pneumatic Tips.  Making systems more efficient and more productive are goals for any OEM Design Engineer and the content found in our magazine and in our digital network provide just that kind of educational content.

This article gives a great overview of vacuum products and how they are integrated into a system for the food packaging and processing industry.  Take a look at this and all of the articles found in our May issue.  If you like what you read there, please consider subscribing to our magazine and to our e-newsletters.

We strive to provide our audience with the very best and latest fluid power content available.  If your company would like to contribute content, please let me know.
