New at the FPTC: Pre-conference workshops from IFPS and MSOE


New to the Fluid Power Technology Conference are two full-day workshops on Monday, May 14, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the  Milwaukee School of Engineering’s Grohmann Tower. Registration is required. Attendees can choose from the following:

IFPS-2017Logo-gradientAdvanced Hydraulics Workshop presented by the International Fluid Power Society’s Tom Blansett — Data gathered from IFPS Hydraulic Specialist Certification tests reveals that failure rates are largely due to a lack of knowledge in two fundamental core competencies. Those are:

  • Understanding the function of hydraulic components in circuits
  • Using design considerations to select components for
    hydraulic systems

Without in-depth knowledge of these fundamentals, it is difficult to identify, assist and solve customers’ problems. Many customers could benefit from newer technologies and designs that would increase efficiency and productivity. This workshop will focus on a few key concepts that will help your sales associates gain more confidence and knowledge when talking to their customers.

MSOE-Large-Red-Block-blogFluid Power Basics Workshop presented by MSOE’s Tom Wanke — This introductory level workshop will cover the benefits and challenges of using fluid power systems for power transmission and motion control. Physical laws that govern how and why fluid power systems function will be discussed. Individual components that comprise a fluid power system; including their design, construction, operational performance and efficiency characteristics will be presented. ISO symbology used for representing individual components will be covered. The workshop will conclude with a brief overview of circuit architectures.

Pre-Conference workshop requires separate registration. Visit for more details.
