Fluid Power World is pleased to announce that it will once again be offering several technical presentations by leading industry educators at both iterations of its Fluid Power Technology Conference. The events are slated for June 6-7 in Minneapolis, at the Hyatt Regency and October 12-13 in Detroit, at Macomb Community College. The events bring together design engineers and maintenance personnel with fluid power manufacturers and industry experts.
Returning once again will be Thomas Wanke, Director of the Milwaukee School of Engineering’s Fluid Power Industrial Consortium and Industry Relations, and Carl Dyke, founder of CD Industrial and LunchBox sessions. And joining the FPTC for the first time will be Robert J. Sheaf, founder and CEO of CFC Industrial.
“We are delighted to have three educators of this caliber helping us inform users of fluid power on how to design, use and troubleshoot fluid power technologies,” said Mary Gannon, Editor-in-Chief of Fluid Power World. “Tom Wanke is a legend in the industry. His 50-year career has been spent mostly at MSOE, helping to shape the minds of countless fluid power engineers. We are truly grateful to have him on board as an advisor to this event since its inception in 2016.
“Carl and Bob are North America’s most popular fluid power instructors, bringing more than 60 years of hands-on training to our audience,” Gannon continued. “Bob has been an integral part of the International Fluid Power Society throughout his career and Carl’s LunchBox Sessions simulations bring fluid power schematics to life.”
Wanke, Dyke and Sheaf will lead several technical basic sessions on hydraulics and pneumatics technologies. Their talks will be a mix of lecture style mixed with some more informal fireside chats to engage attendees in the conversations.
Wanke will also lead a pre-conference workshop in Detroit in October 11 on hydraulic system basics.
Additional presentations from the stage will be offered by sponsoring exhibitors with technical deep dives on specific components and technologies. The event also features intimate networking opportunities, with manufacturers being available at their booths, as well as additional chances to chat in more informal settings, such as an evening cocktail hour.
The FPTC event provides in-depth programming including pre-conference workshops, keynote sessions, industry panels, hands-on technology demonstrations, and networking sessions with the industry’s brightest minds.
