NFPA webcast series to look at improving system design


Milwaukee—The National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) will present a series of webcasts to focus on key issues facing the fluid power industry today. Learn how to use standards to design and build better fluid power systems to:

· increase energy efficiency
· improve reliability
· reduce environmental impact
· ensure system safety

A series of six webcasts will be presented by leading experts in the standards that can help you apply fluid power more effectively and efficiently. Each 60-minute presentation will include at least 15 minutes of questions and answers; here is your chance to talk with the people who know these important standards the best. Join NFPA for as many of the six presentations you would like.

Price: NFPA members – Free
