Optimizing your hydraulic cylinder designs


tickets Attendees to the Fluid Power Technology Conference, presented by Fluid Power World, will have plenty of opportunities to learn from industry experts—as well as pneumatic and hydraulic manufacturers—at the two-day event. Slated for the Milwaukee School of Engineering’s Kern Center on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 21 and 22, the event will feature nearly 10 sessions led by experts in their respective fields.

Operating Cylinders in High Temp Applications, Safety Integrity Level (SIL) and Cylinders, & Using RFID with Cylinders, will be presented by Douglas Lacina, Global Marketing and Engineering Leader, and Pete Frymark, Product Engineering Manager, from Milwaukee Cylinder. This session will cover three separate topics: qow to operate hydraulic cylinders in high-temperature environments, designing systems to remove risk using Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Certification, and the use of RFID with cylinders to optimize maintenance activities.

Taking place from 2:45-3:30 on June 21, on the Breakout Stage, Milwaukee Cylinder will teach you about functional safety and how it has been adopted in many industries and applications to reduce the risk of failure, including oil and gas, nuclear plants, manufacturing, automotive, transportation and medical. You can also look forward to learning what to do with hydraulic cylinders that are typically designed to operate in environments below 180° when they reach a much higher temperature. And lastly you will be taught to understand that High-Frequency (HF) RFID tags use passive RFID technology that contains no battery. Tags are powered by the RF waves emitted from the antenna of an RFID Reader. When the tag is within range, coils in the HF RFID tag capture the RF waves to power the tag. Once powered, the RFID reader can read and write to the tag. No power is required to maintain the memory on the tag. RFID tag memory can only be changed with an RFID reader. RFID tags are designed to hold information for years.
