The second Energy Efficient Hydraulics and Pneumatics Conference (EEHPC), held this past November, boasted a record attendance of 127 participants.  Hosted by the International Fluid Power Society (IFPS), the FPDA Motion and Control Network (FPDA), and the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA), this two day educational conference focused on:
  • Workshops designed to communicate the current best practices for maximizing energy efficiency and balancing cost issues for hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
  • Breakthrough presentations from fluid power component manufacturers, distributors, and system integrators, showcasing innovative approaches and emerging technologies in energy efficient fluid power design and maintenance.
  • Facilitated roundtable discussions, where peers can share specific challenges associated with their industry and applications, and get expert advice from the facilitators.

Attendees responsible for designing and/or maintaining hydraulic and pneumatic systems in industrial settings or mobile applications were present.  NFPA members also attended the conference to hear firsthand about the needs of their OEMs and end-users.

Plans are already underway for a third EEHPC to be held next November.  Stay tuned at www.nfpa.com for updates as they become available.
