Industry Invited to NSF Workshop on Fluid Power Advanced Manufacturing

The rapid advance of new manufacturing technologies, such as additive and hybrid manufacturing, provides exciting opportunities to improve the performance, reliability and cost of many products.  The fluid power industry is actively working to adopt many of these advanced manufacturing technologies into their products.  The University of Minnesota and the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power were awarded a planning grant to establish the Fluid Power Advanced Manufacturing Consortium (FPAMC).  The initial activity of the FPAMC is the creation of an advanced manufacturing roadmap for the fluid power industry.  This workshop will build upon the industry-led manufacturing roadmap to enable new fluid power applications and systems.

Join us May 24-25 in Minneapolis, Minnesota to identify the pre-competitive research objectives and approaches of integrating manufacturing innovations with model-based design and analysis for fluid power components and systems.

Additional information on the workshop, agenda, registration, and hotel accommodations can be found here.
