2017 CCEFP Fluid Power Research Webinar Series Continues February 22

The 2017 CCEFP Webinar Series continues next week on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at 1:00pm Eastern/ 12:00pm CST. Topics will include two of the recently funded research projects: the Efficient, Integrated, Freeform Flexible Hydraulic Actuator project as well as the AC Hydraulic Pump/Motor project. Interested members should sign up for the Webinar Series by following this link. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email and relevant reminders containing information about joining the CCEFP Webinar.

The series is a monthly webcast about research, workforce and special topic presentations hosted by the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power and sponsored by NFPA. Listeners learn more about fluid power research projects at the CCEFP and how they benefit the fluid power industry. The schedule has been set through December 2017.  Check the Webinar Series webpage for updates.
