IFPE is the leading international exposition and technical conference dedicated to the integration of fluid power with other technologies for power transmission and motion control applications. Held every three years, the event is set for Tuesday, March 4, 2014 through Saturday, March 8, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. IFPS 2014 is co-located with CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014, one of the world’s largest gatherings for the construction industries.
Exhibits showcase the latest technologies and innovations in equipment, products, and services for fluid power/motion control/power transmission. The show also features product-focused exhibit pavilions and international exhibit pavilions. IFPE offers extensive educational programming, including the prestigious National Conference on Fluid Power (NCFP), which emphasizes new technologies and methods related to improved analysis, design, manufacture, and performance of fluid power components and systems for mobile and industrial markets.
IFPE attracts design engineers and other decision-makers from these industries:
- Off-Highway Vehicles (includes construction, mining, forestry, agriculture, lawn and garden, and airport support vehicles)
- Fluid Power/Power Transmission Products, Electrical Machinery, Instruments/Controls
- Material Handling (includes overhead/straddle cranes, industrial trucks, tractors, and stackers)
- Manufacturing/Production Automation/Machine Tools (includes chemical, petroleum, metal, plastics, and rubber processing)
- Automotive/Commercial Vehicles (includes Class I trucks, vocational trucks, and trucks for other applications)
- Engineering Services
- Amusement/Entertainment Technology
- Other Products/Services
The technical conference includes over 80 presenters from around the world. Conference proceedings will be published and available at the conference. The Innovations Theater examines real-world solutions for current and future design applications.
Topic areas include fluids (including new and “green”); fluid power systems; fluid power in renewable energy applications; basic components; controls and control systems; auxiliary components related to fluid power; seals and sealing technology; analysis, modeling, and simulation; noise and vibration (analysis, measurement, control); materials and manufacturing (including new and “green”); impact of Tier 4 and beyond; and standards (industry, national, international).
The conference will feature keynote presentations on Energy Consumption in Fluid Power – The Impact and Potential Savings in Mobile Machine Applications and The Hydraulic Hybrid Excavator.
IFPE is owned by National Fluid Power Association (NFPA); Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM); National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA); and National Stone, Sand, and Gravel Association (NSSGA). AEM is the show producer. For more information, visit www.ifpe.com.
