IFPE 2000 welcomes electrical and mechanical power transmission exhibitors

The International Fluid Power Exposition 2000 runs April 4 to 6 at Chicago's McCormick Place Lakeside Center.

More than 400 exhibitors will showcase power-transmission products, controls, and systems. For the first time in its 14-year history, the show will include electrical and mechanical power transmission exhibitors, as well as those offering hydraulic and pneumatic components.

Another new addition to the IFPE program is [email protected], a way for attendees to present design challenges before the show and get feedback from exhibitors at the show. The IFPE Technical Conference consists of half-hour presentations that will focus on design theory and applications. Solutions-in-Action Seminars are half-day sessions that will offer in-depth coverage of specific topics related to electrohydraulics, electropneumatics, and electromechanical power transmission. The Hydraulic Fluid Symposium will address current issues and concerns related to various fluids in a half-day session. Courses required for American Institute of Motion Engineers (AIME) certification exams are also offered.
