Looking ahead ...

Every issue of Fluid Power World magazine is full of great content about system design, maintenance, component selection, and much more.  Our articles really help our OEM and aftermarket readers on the job with explanations of systems and components as well as success stories.

In April, we will discuss Mobile Hydraulics in Mining Applications where hydraulics meet the challenge of very demanding and harsh environments.  Having more information about component selection for mining applications is certainly important to our mobile audience.

On the industrial side, our editors will take a look at Offshore Applications in preparation for the always-important Offshore Tech Conference held in Houston in May.  With energy pricing somewhat stabilized, this market has become settled for component suppliers.

Food Processing Equipment will be the focus of our pneumatic feature in April.  Pneumatic systems are used in the processing as well as packaging of all types of foods.  Our April Product Focus will examine the types and usages for Vacuum Transducers, a sensing device for vacuum systems.

Join us with your product advertising in April.  Our closing date for ad materials will be March 30.  Please contact me if you have any questions.


Let’s make 2017 a great year!

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.

Join Us for This Unique Event

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 mference@wtwhmedia.com 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!
