Bimba Welcomes Nearly 100 Students & University Faculty to Denver for Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge

Teams from 15 universities across the country are submitting videos to demonstrate that their Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge competition bike is in working condition and indicating their intent to participate in final event, which will be hosted by Bimba Manufacturing Company next week. The submitted video footage confirms that the vehicle is safe and operational and verifies stored energy working off the accumulator.

Teams are now preparing their final presentations to deliver to a panel of judges next week in suburban Denver before competing against their university peers in three bike races.

With three days of activities, each concluding with networking dinners, this event is sure to be action packed and a great opportunity for students and university faculty to engage with industry.

Many thanks to Bimba Manufacturing Company for hosting this year’s Final Competition and also to program sponsors Eaton Corporation, Lube Tech, Parker Hannifin, Source Fluid Power and SunSource. Your generous support makes this program possible!
