IFPS’s annual meeting takes place Sept. 26-29 at the Embassy Suites Downtown in San Diego.
Events kick off with a Sept. 26 technical workshop titled Electrohydraulic Control Systems. Tom Blansett, CFPAI, IFPS technical director, and Denis Poirier, CFPAI, training operations manager, Danfoss Power Solutions, present a review of proportional valve concepts, a discussion on basic amplifier principles and tuning strategies, and conclude with a deep dive into how to properly size proportional valves for optimum performance. The session includes team discussions, the interpretation of performance data, and exercises in valve sizing. The workshop starts at 8 a.m. and the cost is $150.
IFPS also hosts the Fluid Power Hall of Fame awards ceremony Sept. 28, when two inductees, including one posthumous, will be honored for significant contributions to the fluid power industry.
