MOTION, DRIVE, & AUTOMATION NORTH AMERICA AT IMTS 2016

Fluid power is a workhorse of the U.S. economy. It is a cross-cutting technology of choice for dozens of industries and hundreds of applications. Pneumatics and hydraulics continue to be a key component in the manufacturing process. 

Fluid power systems consume significant amounts of energy, and increases in overall energy efficiency are possible through the adoption of best practices and focused R&D programs. Organized by the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA), the Fluid Power Conference is new to the lineup this year. At this one-of-a-kind event, you will hear from industry experts on how to adapt, optimize your fluid power components, and maximize energy conservation. 

The NFPA is a trade association. Its members include more than 340 manufacturers of fluid power systems and components, fluid power distributors, suppliers to the fluid power industry, educators and researchers. NFPA’s U.S. and multinational members work cooperatively in advancing hydraulic and pneumatic technology through the association’s many programs and initiatives.
