IFPE 2011 will feature new and expanded education programs

IFPE 2011 has added half-day college-level courses and special keynote presentations to its extensive line-up of educational programming at the show. Engineers and other industry professionals in design and manufacturing can conveniently get up to speed on the latest best practices, research and developments in fluid power, power transmission and motion control technologies.

IFPE will be held March 22-26, 2011 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas USA, co-located with the CONEXPO-CON/AGG international exposition for the construction and construction materials industries.

The new IFPE college-level courses offer hands-on technical knowledge on fluid power and hydraulics with a focus on hydraulic fluids and their applications; design, modeling and control of hybrid vehicles; noise in hydraulic fluid power systems; and basic lubrication. The sessions will benefit practicing engineers and others involved in design and manufacturing processes. Continuing education units (CEUs) are available. The Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers partnered with IFPE on the college-level courses.

Opening keynote addresses on pumps and hydraulic hybrids are a new addition to the 52nd National Conference on Fluid Power, hosted by IFPE. The conference will also feature presentations from researchers in the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP). The CCEFP is a National Science Foundation Research Center conducting pioneering research in emerging technologies.

More than 120 presentations a record will be included in the conference, which targets mobile and industrial markets and emphasizes new technologies and methods for improved analysis, design, manufacture and performance of fluid power components and systems.

The Innovations Theater will again be on the show floor at IFPE, with 15 sessions on real-world solutions for current and future design applications. The sessions are free to all registered IFPE and CONEXPO-CON/AGG attendees.

"We have raised the level of education offered at the show with prominent researchers and academia who will share the latest technological advancements. Itts more important than ever for industry professionals to be looking ahead. The robust learning theyyll find at IFPE will help them gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace," stated IFPE Show Director Melissa Magestro.
