MSOE logo for FPICThe next seminar of MSOE’s Fluid Power Industrial Consortium (FPIC) will be held on June 2, 2017 at Precision Plus in Elkhorn, WI. The focus will be on the potential and actual use of additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, in fluid power. A full agenda for the seminar can be accessed here.

Through its quarterly series of half-day seminars on the latest fluid power technology advances with immediate implementation, FPIC provides a platform for fluid power OEMs, manufacturers, SMEs, and distributors to network, problem solve, and access cutting edge technology. NFPA is a supporting partner of FPIC. As a result, NFPA member companies are exempt from the annual FPIC membership fee and are able to participate freely in the quarterly seminars.

Members of NFPA’s Roadmap Committee, who assist us in maintaining the NFPA Technology Roadmap, are especially encouraged to participate. It is expected that FPIC seminar topics will provide Roadmap Committee members with an ideal way to stay abreast of the technological advancements that will influence the direction of our roadmap. In fact, we’ve added some time on the June 2 agenda to review what our roadmap says about additive manufacturing, and to discuss if any of the information presented at the seminar warrants updating or revising it.

For the June 2 seminar, space is limited to the first 40 registrants. Register here.
