Drive For Technology

I had the privilege this week of attending a very interesting and cool fluid power event titled Drive For Technology with my colleague, Mary Gannon.  The event took place at the company CMA/Flodyne/Hydradyne in Hannover Park, IL.  You can find more about this company at www.cmafh.comhttp://www.cmafh.com

The two-day event featured a unique blend of technical sessions presented right at the CMAFH facility by their vendors as well as their own technical people.  Some of the companies represented includes SMC, Eaton, Bosch Rexroth, Proportion Air, Hanna Cylinders, Sun Hydraulics, Hydac, Fastest, and more.


We had the opportunity to network with many of the experts presenting their products in the booths at the expo portion of the event.  We learned a great deal about the companies and products on display and have several new editorial leads from the event.


I would like to compliment the folks at CMA/Flodyne/Hydradyne for hosting the event and so graciously inviting Mary and I to attend.  The hospitality extended to us by the staff at CMAFH was a real show of class.  I sincerely thank them for inviting us and making our visit most pleasant!

The food and beverages provided were outstanding and the facility in Hannover Park is amazing.  The event was a huge success by every measure.  This is another example of "grass roots' level fluid power learning.  Combining technical training, networking, and food is a formula for success!
