Fluid Power Presentation Featured in World Ag Expo Seminar Lineup

Part of NFPA’s mission is to provide opportunities and resources for its members to promote the unique strengths and inherent advantages offered by modern fluid power technology. To this end, a new education program strategy targeting trade shows in key customer markets is set to add to our existing menu of programs and help further push fluid power content to targeted customer audiences.

The first in this developing lineup of fluid power education sessions is now available as part of the on-demand seminar selection for the 2021 World Ag Expo. In a presentation previously featured on Fluid Power Forum, Stavros Vougioukas of UC Davis discusses a fully automated, hydraulically powered collaborative robotic platform that optimizes fruit harvesting speed and efficiency. In this application, hydraulic technology is necessary to provide the power density needed to smoothly and safely operate machine functions, including adjusting the platforms, lifting the 1,000-pound fruit bins and controlling the steering.

Keep an eye on NFPA News for more updates as this education session lineup continues to develop and grow, and check out Fluid Power Forum and #OnlyFluidPowerCan for more unique fluid power applications.
