Las Vegas, NV — The IFPE 2008 Technical Conference will feature a record 111 presentations on the latest research and developments in power transmission and motion control technologies, with sessions geared to the global needs of engineers and other decision-makers involved in design and manufacturing processes.

The IFPE 2008 Technical Conference will be held March 12-14, 2008, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., in conjunction with IFPE, the International Exposition for Power Transmission. The IFPE show runs March 11-15, 2008, and will feature 400 exhibitors and more than 11,000 square metres of exhibit space.

The 2008 IFPE Technical Conference will also include a new electronic controls symposium in addition to its technology and design program. For the first time, Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be available for all technical conference sessions, to provide extra value for attendees.

IFPE conference presenters are industry experts in companies and universities from around the globe. All papers have been reviewed by the National Conference on Fluid Power, comprising industry leaders and academic experts, to assure a high-quality conference that meets current design engineering needs.


New topic areas include asset management, computational fluid dynamics, hybrid systems, suspensions and vehicle systems. Additional topics featuring new research include filtration/contamination, fluids, hydraulic systems, hydraulic valves, mechanical, modeling/simulation, pneumatics, plumbing/piping/fittings, pumps/motors/hydrostatic transmissions, seals/sealing and water hydraulics.

IFPE 2008 attendees can also take advantage of learning sessions at a new Innovation and Solutions Center on the IFPE show floor, as well as the educational programs offered by the co-located Conexpo-Con/Agg 2008 exposition. A broad range of these sessions will focus on management strategies and personal development techniques.
