At the International Fluid Power Exposition March 14-18 in Las Vegas, IFPS hosts three educational sessions on various topics.
IFPS CEO Donna Pollander leads a session with the latest updates on certifications and a spotlight on resources to help prepare for a certification test. The session is March 14 at 1 p.m.
IFPS consultant Dan Helgerson, CFPAI, presents Reducing Energy Consumption in Fluid Power Systems on March 16 at 2:15 p.m. The session looks at providing more efficient systems. The presentation explores alternative methods of velocity and pressure control that cause fluid power motors and cylinders to draw only the energy needed for the work, regardless of the pressure at the pump outlet or accumulator. Presentation topics include explanations of terms; analyzing energy loss using accumulators, pressure compensated pumps, and load sensing pumps; methods of power control that transform the energy at the pump or accumulator outlet into the actuator’s requirements.
IFPS consultant Rance Herren, CFPAI, hosts a session called What Can you Do to Make Your Machine More Efficient on March 15 at 9:30 a.m.
Attendees can also stop by the IFPS booth – SL80126 – for swag and resource discounts. At the end of each day, IFPS raffles off free copies of the Fluid Power Reference Handbook.
