While the operating principles of fluid power remain constant, fluid power capabilities continually improve. Pumps are more powerful, valves are smarter, and actuators are more precise. In fact, some of the most dramatic changes in the history of modern fluid power are taking place right now. Learn More

NETWORKING LOUNGE SCHEDULED CHAT: "Electric Actuators: A Fluid Power" Hosted by Randy Bowman, LINAK USA
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PST)
This presentation will demonstrate recent advances in modeling pumps and valves for flow dynamics and cavitation. It will explain how companies use computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to predict performance, gain product insight, and save time and money. Attendees will walk through a complete modeling process, start-to-finish, using the CFD tool PumpLinx®. Learn More
Samuel Lowry, President, Simerics
The impact of corrosion involves more than economic cost. It adversely affects the environment and public safety, and contributes to significant opportunity loss nation-wide. This presentation will examine the cost of corrosion in greater detail, look at corrosion’s effect on manufacturing and process industries, and make recommendations to address the silent menace.
