Quarterly Technology Conference
March 7, 2024
The National Fluid Power Association and MSOE’s Fluid Power Industrial Consortium have identified a session topic for the Quarterly Technology Conference that will be held virtually on March 7, 2024: “Fluid Power and the Drive Towards Preventative and Predictive Maintenance.”
We are now seeking presentation proposals from NFPA members, FPIC members and/or their suppliers and customers that address this topic. Ideally, we are looking for one presentation from an OEM focusing generally on the topic of preventative and predictive maintenance (i.e., why their market is driving in this direction and what some of the needs in this space are) and two presentations from fluid power suppliers or system integrators focused on market-ready technologies or solutions that address these needs.
Proposals should include a presentation title, speaker name and credentials, and a 2-3 sentence describing the content of the presentations. Each confirmed presenter will be asked to give a 30-minute presentation, with 10 minutes reserved for questions from the audience. Send those proposals before January 12, 2024, to Pete Alles of the NFPA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
