A great first day at the FPCE


It's been a great first day of our Fluid Power Conference & Expo here in Cleveland! Starting the day with a hot breakfast followed by our keynote presentation by John Treharn from Parker Hannifin,who had fascinating ideas to share about the history of hydraulics and its evolution and future with hybrid technology, alternative energies, and more.

The remainder of the day has flowed smoothly, with great talks on integrating electronics into manifolds, diagnostics, hydraulic valve designs, avoiding design mistakes, and of course, some fundamentals.

Tomorrow kicks off with Bob Sheaf again, who will be discussing energy efficient designs. Once again, a full, hot breakfast and lunch are included, with several more great technical sessions, including troubleshooting, energy saving with pneumatics, designing with HyDraw CAD, and circuit designs.

Walk-ins are still welcome tomorrow morning, so hope to see you there!
