Hosted by the International Fluid Power Society (IFPS), the FPDA Motion and Control Network (FPDA), and the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA), the 2013 Fluid Power Systems Conference, formerly known as the Energy Efficient Hydraulics and Pneumatics Conference, will be held November 19-21, 2013 at the Doubletree Hotel in Rosemont, IL.

This two day educational conference will focus on:
  • Design workshops to communicate why energy efficiency and reliability are increasingly a concern of machine builders and the role of fluid power in meeting those needs and balancing cost issues;
  • Hands-on instruction into practical maintenance techniques from fluid power component manufacturers, distributors, and system integrators;
  • Facilitated roundtable discussions, where peers can share specific challenges associated with their industry and applications, learn about fluid power standards, best practices in building efficient and reliable fluid power systems, and the future of fluid power;
  • Networking events, including the Innovation Showcase, to help participating engineers and technicians engage with technology providers from fluid power manufacturing and distribution companies to learn the newest, cutting edge developments in energy efficient and reliable developments in hydraulics and pneumatics.

Professionals responsible for designing and/or maintaining hydraulic and pneumatic systems in industrial settings or mobile applications should plan to attend. Your customers want to save energy and money with fluid power.  NFPA encourages members to share this information with their customers and invite them to attend.
