RE: Latest and future treands in Fluid Power - Any idea?

Hydraulics & Pneumatics magazine did an article on a similar subject with feedback from the guru's of Fluid Power a few years back. I couldn't find it in the archives but you could check with Alan Hitchcox at the magazine to see if it is available.

RE: Latest and future treands in Fluid Power - Any idea?

I don't know of any exact articles, but I am in fluid power and I would research the shift from Hydraulic and Pneumatic systems to the electromechanical (mechanical actuators driven by step or servo motors) side.

RE: Latest and future treands in Fluid Power - Any idea?

In the Nov/Dec 2004 edition of Hydraulics and Pneumatics, P K Guha wrote an article called Whither Hydraulics?

In the april 2005 edition, Mr Paul Newham wrote an article correcting some of Mr Guha's "wilder Claims".

The articles are in respect to the technological progress of hydraulics over the past 40 years.

Mr Guha had suggested the fluid power industry is using 1960's technology in 2004.

Take a look at www.nfpa.com.  They post sales and trend figures for the Fluid Power Industry.  This information is also published in each issue of the Fluid Power Journal www.fluidpowerjournal.com.

Our data is constantly exposed to the danger of being intercepted or stolen as it wends its way over global data networks. Data security measures and measures for protecting intellectual property should not, however, first be implemented when data is exchanged – companies must lay the foundation for these measures within their own organization.
