2013 Fluid Power Systems Conference

Reliable and Efficient Hydraulics and Pneumatics for Today and Tomorrow

EEFC Logo The 2013 Fluid Power Systems Conference, formerly known as the Energy Efficient Hydraulics and Pneumatics Conference, was scheduled for November 19-21, 2013 at the Doubletree Hotel, Rosemont, Illinois. 

Hosted by FPDA, the International Fluid Power Society (IFPS), and the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA), this two day educational conference focused on:

  • Design workshops to communicate why energy efficiency and reliability are increasingly a concern of machine builders and the role of fluid power in meeting those needs and balancing cost issues;
  • Hands-on instruction into practical maintenance techniques from fluid power component manufacturers, distributors, and system integrators;
  • Facilitated roundtable discussions, where peers can share specific challenges associated with their industry and applications, learn about fluid power standards, best practices in building efficient and reliable fluid power systems, and the future of fluid power;
  • Networking events, including the Innovation Showcase Reception, to help participating engineers and technicians engage with technology providers from fluid power manufacturing and distribution companies to learn the newest, cutting edge developments in energy efficient and reliable developments in hydraulics and pneumatics.

Now in its third year, the 2013 Fluid Power Systems Conference delivered tremendous value to it's attendees in content and discussions.  Eric Battino, supplier sustainability manager at PepsiCo, summed up the previous events by saying, “It was encouraging to see professionals and leaders in this industry beginning to address energy efficiency. As a stakeholder, energy conservation is a business imperative and our equipment needs to be designed to reduce energy use in our day to day operations.”
