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.
