01 October, 2013

Fluid Power & Systems (NEC Hall 3/3A, Birmingham, 8-10 April 2014) is the only event in the UK that is 100 per cent focused on a comprehensive range of hydraulic and pneumatic equipment, together with products that facilitate better electro-mechanic system design and application for improved process automation, control and monitoring.

Fully supported by the British Fluid Power Association (BFPA) and Hydraulics & Pneumatics magazine, this free-to-attend exhibition comprises the largest gathering of world-class companies displaying and demonstrating the latest in mechanical and electro-mechanical equipment. Whatever your industrial sector – whether engineering, construction, offshore/marine, oil & gas, agriculture/farming, automotive or aerospace – Fluid Power & Systems offers a convenient one-stop shop for all your fluid power and system requirements, including:
 
  • ·         Hydraulics: industrial and mobile, including pumps and powerpacks, cylinders, valves, motors, heat exchangers, and accumulators. Filters and sealing technologies.
  •  
  • ·         Pneumatics: valve and valve islands, linear and rotary actuators, air motors, FRLs and other treatment technologies.
  •  
  • ·         Systems: Electro-hydraulic & pneumatic systems design; CAN bus technology; process automation; monitoring & control; modelling & simulation.
  •  
  • ·         Instrumentation: Sensors, switches and controls as applied to fluid power: Temperature, flow, pressure, liquid level, position.

Air-Tech 2014, which is free-to-attend, will cover current key themes related to the very latest in air compressor and related technology from leading companies from around the globe. Supported by Hydraulics & Pneumatics and Plant & Works Engineering magazines, just some of the products and services you can see at Air-Tech 2014 will include:
 
·         Accumulators, actuators, air delivery systems and air motors.
·         Compressors, cooler tools and cylinders.
·         Vacuum and generators.
·         Displays & meters.
·         Filters, fittings, heat exchangers and hoses.
·         Instruments, lubricators, manifolds and mobile compressors.
·         Pumps, regulators, sensors, software and valves.
 
Recent Air-Tech signatories
Just some of the recent signatories to next year’s show include: GardnerDenver; Mattei; TST Tamsan; Teseo; Hertz; Baglioni; Maziak; Direct Air; RAAL; and JP Sauer.
Chris Dee, executive director of the British Compressed Air Society (BCAS), said: “In addition to the who’s who of the compressed air industry that will be both visiting and exhibiting at the show, Air-Tech 2014 will, like previous outings, provide the ideal forum for networking among BCAS’s compressed air equipment manufacturer and distributor membership as well as the end user community.”
 
Co-location advantage
Air-Tech and Fluid Power & Systems will be co-located with leading complementary shows Drives & Controls and Plant & Asset Management, together with the newly launched European Offshore & Energy Exhibition, as well as MACH and National Electronics Week – bringing over 40,000 visitors to the NEC in 1 week.
In the wake of record attendance during its 2012 co-located events, exhibition organiser DFA Media is optimistic that the 2014 outing will exceed both the exhibitor and visitor numbers of the 2012 shows, which attracted the highest visitor numbers yet; totalling 11,146 for the three-day co-located event. This represented an increase of 29 per cent from the 8624 attendance figure of the 2010 shows, highlighting a significant return of confidence to the UK manufacturing sector.
 
Seminar programme
Complementing the exhibitions will be a full programme of free technical seminars, with speakers offering expert insight and practical advice on important and topical issues. More information on the Fluid Power & Systems and Air-Tech seminar line-up, together with the programme for co-located presentations, will soon be available on the websites. The Fluid Power & Systems and Air-Tech seminars are sponsored by Gardner Denver.
