As in the past, the Federation of Dutch suppliers in the Fluid Power Business (FEDA) and Verenging Platform Hydrauliek (VPH) are organizing the event and have chosen to focus on water hydraulics.</p> <p> Although water hydraulics have been used for decades, the technology has not gained widespread acceptance. This is all changing now, as important developments emerge to solve such issues such as cavitation, corrosion, and lubrication in water hydraulic applications. As a result, components such as valves and pumps specifically developed for water hydraulic applications in the lower capacity segment are increasingly emerging in the market.</p> <p> The conference will consist of fifteen speakers representing the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Canada and Switzerland. Because of the large number of speakers, the organizers have chosen to run parallel sessions.</p> <p> Another segment of the conference is a competition that will be held among technical institutes in the Netherlands. This challenge is for students to invent a solution for compression of plastic waste but to devise a household device that exploits the domestic water supply network as the primary power source and hydraulic medium.</p> <p> Arjan Coppens, FEDA board member and chairman of the Hydraulic Solutions Section offered, &ldquo;It is extremely important for us to involve the educational field in these developments within the discipline of hydraulics. That still does not happen enough, and yet these future engineers are exactly the people we need in the years ahead to pick up and run with this technology.&rdquo;</p> <table align="right" border="0" cellpadding="10" width="400"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <a href="/site-files/hydraulicspneumatics.com/files/uploads/2012/06/logo.png" target="_blank"><img src="/site-files/hydraulicspneumatics.com/files/uploads/2012/06/logo.png" style="width: 400px;" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td> &nbsp;</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p> Visit <a href="http://www.dfpc.nl">www.dfpc.nl</a> for more information and to register.</p> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/5th-annual-dutch-fluid-power-conference" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/5th-annual-dutch-fluid-power-conference#comments Mon, 02 Jul 2012 15:19:00 +0000 14371 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com NFPA Pneumatic flow rating webinar http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/nfpa-pneumatic-flow-rating-webinar <div class="node-body event-body"></div> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Online</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=%2C+%2C+%2C+%2C+us">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field-desc"> <p> The National Fluid Power Association will hold a webinar titled &quot;Unlocking the mysteries of pneumatic flow rating&quot; September 18, which will teach attendees how to use more accurate flow rating data to design more efficient pneumatic systems.</p> <p> The webinar will be presented by John Berninger, consultant, with Parker Hannifin Corp. He will highlight how the flow capacity of a pneumatic component is a key performance characteristic, and changes to ISO standards for determining flow capacity provide for greater accuracy in measuring this characteristic.

This two-day event will bring fluid power professions together from across the country, providing an excellent opportunity to talk with experts from industry and academia about the latest challenges and developents in fluid power technology.</p> <p> Both days of this two-day event opens with a keynote address delivered by an engineering expert and is followed by practical sessions presented by professional trainers. As an added bonus, representatives from fluid power manufacturers and service providers will be on hand to introduce the latest developments in their particular fields of expertise.</p> <p> Furthermore, members of the Equipment Service Association will be holding their annual meeting in conjunction with the Fluid Power Conference &amp; Expo to further enhance networking opprtunities.</p> <p> Following is a schedule of events, including a plant tour and evening at Nashville&#39;s famous Jack&#39;s Bar-B-Que. So don&#39;t delay; rooms at a special rate of only $119 per night at the Holiday Inn Express (easy walking distance to the Country Music Hall of fame) are going fast. <strong><a href="https://www.etouches.com/ehome/59721/146730/" target="_blank">Click here</a></strong> for details.</p> <h3> Why Vanderbilt?</h3> <p> Vanderbilt University&rsquo;s School of Engineering Department will host the Fluid Power Conference &amp; Expo November 6 and 7. Vanderbilt engineers are a key part of the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) team in an ambitious national effort to advance the field of fluid power, which could lead to reductions in fuel consumption, state-of-the-art rescue robots and new devices to aid people with mobility impairments.</p> <p> Furthermore, Nashville&rsquo;s strategic location makes it close not only to the many manufacturing facilities in the Midwest, but also to the many newer, state-of-the-art plants in the South and Southeast. These facilities are heavy users of hydraulic and pneumatic components that are specified for the machines they manufacture and for their in-plant production equipment. Naturally, then OEMs, users, and distributors are eager to learn more about fluid power technology, components, and services they can incorporate into their designs.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <span lang="en" style="font-family: Arial;
