Pricing Strategies

Held October 24, 2012
Increasing Margins Through a More Strategic Approach to Pricing
Using new, more accurate methods to measure flow rating and improve pneumatic component and system performance

Presenter: Dave Lienert, Strategic Pricing Associates
       Dave Lienert of Strategic Pricing Associates discusses the benefits, and some of the methods, of moving from undisciplined and reactive pricing practices to an analytical approach that maximizes margins based on customer market size and price sensitivity. His presentation also addresses practical matters of how this approach benefits your sales force.
       This webinar was brought to you as a member service resulting from discussion at a meeting of the NFPA Distributor Council.

NFPA Fluid Power Technology Webinars

Held, November 13, 2013  
Using ISO standards to improve hydraulic system contamination control
Learn how to make your hydraulic system cleaner and more reliable.
Presenter: Leonard Bensch, consultant for Pall Corp.
       Contamination in hydraulic system fluids is generally recognized as the single most important factor in reducing equipment reliability and operating efficiency due to wear. Nearly every system incorporates filters with the intent to control the contamination; however, in many instances, little thought and, certainly, little science goes into the proper selection and application of filters.
       This webinar includes a brief discussion of contamination types and sources and the damage contamination causes to hydraulic components. It also describes various ISO standards for measuring and reporting contamination levels and for evaluating all aspects of hydraulic filter performance. It emphasizes the steps necessary to determine the required cleanliness level (RCL) for a hydraulic system and the selection and application of filters to maintain that cleanliness.

Held September 18, 2013  
How to use standardized reliability data to design more reliable pneumatic systems (ISO 19973 series)
Learn how manufacturers of pneumatic valves, cylinders, pressure regulators and accessories can measure the reliability of their products and share that information with their customers in a meaningful way.
Presenter: John Berninger, Parker Hannifin Corp. (retired)
       Machine builders who sell their product in Europe need to comply with European standards for the safety-related parts of control systems, which include pneumatic valves. Also, many machine builders are also interested in benchmarking and improving the reliability of their products by knowing the reliability of components.
