Welcome to the website of the Dutch Fluid Power Conference.

At November 10, 2016 the Dutch Fluid Power Conference will be organized for the seventh time in succession in a joined cooperation of the FEDA (Federation of Drives and Automation) and the VPH (Dutch Fluid Power Association). The main topic for this year will be:

System Architecture in Hydraulics


Objective of the 2016 Conference:

This conference brings together students, experts, system designers and manufacturers as well end-users in a collaborative environment. The conference goals are:

  • Increase knowledge on system approach and its architecture in hydraulics

  • Learn more about choices that are made in an early phase of a project/system and the effect they have on the final functionality of the drive or parts of the drive

  • To share experiences in system approach, not only from the speakers but also from the attendees of the conference

As this international conference is aimed at participants from the whole of Europe the presentations  will be in English.
