June 2021 Virtual NFPA/FPIC Conference Recordings Now Available

Presented through a combined effort of NFPA and the Fluid Power Industrial Consortium (FPIC) of the Milwaukee School of Engineering, the virtual June NFPA/FPIC Quarterly Conference provided an engaging program to the conference’s largest audience so far this year. The event featured three industry speakers who used their first-hand expertise to discuss advanced software and smart tools for fluid power component and system design, simulation and optimization. The event was hosted via Remo, a highly effective virtual platform that simulated a traditional in-person networking experience for attendees.
