2018 NFPC Industry Open Day Event

The NFPC invites you to attend the Industry Exhibition & Open Day

Our industry-lead exhibition has grown to become a key annual event for companies associated with Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Electronics, Control and Automation.

We have over 80 companies expected to be taking part in the 2018 Industry Open Day event which will give you a chance to network and see the latest technologies as we take a lead into Integrated Systems Engineering.

You’ll have the chance to attend a variety of Technical Lectures throughout the day delivered by our key speakers, and an opportunity to see the world class training facilities we have at the National Fluid Power Centre.

A free buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided to all of those attending and there is car parking available on site.

Information on our technical lecturesKEY SPEAKERS & LECTURE SUBJECTS

John Evans - Hypro Filtration

“Lubricant Varnishing & Varnish Mitigation Strategy”

Varnish can lead to numerous equipment problems and eventually failure relating to: filter clogging, valve stiction, poor heat transfer, restricted oil flow in control orifices and poor response to input signals. This can all result in costly downtime. This paper will introduce you to a tried and tested system for removing varnish in both its soluble and insoluble state and an explanation of how it is formed in the first place.

NFPC Room F113 Tech 2

Andreas Kling - Eaton Ltd

“CMA Advanced Mobile Valve with Independent Metering”

The industry is moving to smarter, more efficient machines. It is no longer just about components, it is about how new Valve technology can connect to create intelligent systems that dynamically adapt and respond. The CAN-enabled electrohydraulic mobile valve features on-board electronics and sophisticated software algorithms, which offers a valuable solution in the industry standards for intelligence, capabilities, dynamics and control . – they’re a requirement for today.

NFPC Room F119 Tech 2

Leigh Gillard - Siemens

“Uses and Role System Simulation”

This presentation will take a look at how simulation can be used to design, size, control and troubleshoot modern day hydraulic systems. The use of the system model has multiple uses and benefits across all organisations and this paper will provide typical examples.

NFPC Room F212 Tech 3

Paul Stanfield & Rob Birkett - IFM Electronics

“Machine health using condition based monitoring”

Machine condition based monitoring systems are used for the predictive maintenance of machines and installations, allowing machine faults to be detected in good time, preventing costly consequential damages. This paper will introduce you to the latest techniques and an opportunity to talk to key experts.
