As a means of supporting its industrial partners, the Fluid Power Institute (FPI) at Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) established the Fluid Power Industrial Consortium (FPIC).

FPIC is composed of OEMs, component manufacturers, SMEs, distributors and other organizations involved with the fluid power industry. Companies can get involved with the consortium by attending the quarterly seminars or making a presentation on their advanced technologies.

Seminar topics focus on the Fluid Power Manufacturing Roadmap objectives which aim to improve the manufacture and function of fluid power components and systems through:

  • coatings
  • micro-machining
  • composites and engineered plastics
  • sintered metals
  • additive manufacturing
  • batch-free heat treating
  • robotics
  • hybrid manufacturing
  • metrology
  • in-process sensing, feedback, and control

Chuck White from Hallite will present at the December 7th FPIC program. Chuck’s seminar topic will be: “Advanced Sealing Technologies and Materials for Improving System Efficiency”

The program will be held at the InterContinental Hotel in downtown Milwaukee, December 7th.
