I hope that fluid power solutions are at the top of your list. Why? You might be surprised just how big the fluid power industry is. Fluid power continues to be a workhorse of the U.S. economy—a cross-cutting technology of choice for dozens of industries and hundreds of applications. The following link and video were recently published by the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) which broadly describe the size and economic impact of the industry and also explore the energy consumption, best practices and current research and development directions of fluid power technology.

I would love to hear about real life design applications where fluid power clearly came out the winner. If you have an example that you would like to share please email me at email@example.com.
