This year’s FPIRC offers many unique opportunities for attendees:

  • Participation in a program of over 40 fluid power technical posters and presentations, including keynote talks on the critical integration of industry and academia in technology and workforce

The conference is expected to bring together hundreds of fluid power industry professionals, academic leaders, and students.
