Presentation Slides From Milwaukee Regional Meeting Available

MSOE Mechatronics and Fluid Power Lab Tour

MSOE’s Mechatronics and Fluid Power Lab

The second annual Milwaukee Regional, held on September 27, 2016 at the Milwaukee School of Engineering, brought together over 40 NFPA members and guests to network, hear presentations, and experience the new Grohmann Towers on the MSOE campus.

This year’s Milwaukee Regional featured two NFPA members presenting on solutions to well-known challenges with fluid power systems—contamination and leaks.  Bruce Riley of Ultra Clean Technologies and Thomas Braun of FasTest both showed ways to alleviate these issues in order to bring more reliability and cost effectiveness to fluid power systems.  You may view their presentations using these links:

The meeting concluded with special tours of the MSOE Fluid Power Lab.

NFPA would like to send out a special thank you to MSOE for their help in making this meeting a success.

The Regional Meeting season has only just begun. The next meeting is slated for November 16 in Cleveland. Registration and information available here.
