Sometimes the solution is obvious but you don't see it
My friend, Tom Nash of Applied Industrial Technologies, is a good trainer for fluid power maintenance. At our Fluid Power Conference & Expo in Cleveland, Tom draws a good crowd to his seminar sessions on Troubleshooting. So, we know that he knows what he is talking about.
Sometimes, solutions to fluid power problems are so simple that the technician misses it. However, Tom got to the bottom of a very simple problem without having to apply his vast knowledge of fluid power systems. Read about it in Lessons learned - the hard way in the May issue of Hydrauilcs & Pneumatics.
It would be great if all problems could be solved so easily. They are mostly not so that is why reading Hydraulics & Pneumatics every month makes so much sense. You can add to your knowledge by attending the Fluid Power Conference & Expo in Cleveland on October 25-26, 2011. Visit our website for more details.
