On the second day of the Fluid Power Conference & Expo at MSOE, the keynote was presented by Tom Price
The second day of the Fluid Power Conference & Expo was stated at the Grohmann Museum at MSOE and sponsored by Price Engineering. I will be writing more about that but for now, I would like to focus on the excellent talk by Tom Price of Price Engineering titled Moving Innovation Forward. This presentation was especially interesting because it comes from a well-respected fluid power industry professional.
In his address, Tom outlined 6 Challenges Facing the Fluid Power Industry and they are:
These challenges very well outline the themes that I hear repeatedly and, while they are challenges, they are also opportunities for our industry. One of the very reasons that we hold the Fluid Power Conference & Expo is to help the industry to define these challenges and present solutions.
Many of the presentations that preceeded and followed Tom's keynote did indeed offer solutions that answer these challenges for fluid power. By meeting the call for all of the 6 above-mentioned areas of improvement, our industry will certainly mover forward through innovation.
