Educational series keeps fluid power rocking

The Fluid Power Conference & Expo’s goal is to educate attendees on everything from the basics of fluid power components to how to fine-tune their systems.

Next month’s fourth Fluid Power Conference & Expo is scheduled for November 13-14 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in downtown Cleveland. This educational event will feature more than 18 technical sessions on a variety of hydraulic and pneumatic design topics. This represents a serious collection of the best and brightest minds in fluid power giving technical, educational presentations. The conference provides attendees the opportunity to learn about current technology in short, one- or two-hour presentations.

The Expo will also feature several dozen companies in the exhibit hall, with displays showcasing their products and expertise. Attendees can browse the hall during breaks and between sessions. Sponsors of the Expo include a wide array of companies interested in promoting fluid power education.
