BFPA to lead Talking Industry Live panel discussion on fluid power and factories of the future


Paul Cooke, Interim CEO, The British Fluid Power Association (BFPA) has confirmed that the BFPA will be holding a Talking Industry Live panel discussion at the forthcoming  Fluid Power & Systems Exhibition (5-7 April 2022), focussing on Fluid Power and Factories of the Future. 

Paul Cooke will be joined by other leading experts including Martin Hoskins, Regional Sales Manager, Bosch Rexroth, and Martin Costin, Drives & Networks Specialist, SMC who will examine how modern fluid power is an important sector for UK Industry with a large percentage of all production being at least in part dependent on this technology to create motion. With the backdrop of Industry 4.0, fluid Power (pneumatics and hydraulics) will adapt and deliver with the pre-requisite also of safety, efficiency, and environmental demands. Fluid power will be connected, smart and flexible as well as providing safe and environmentally compatible means of providing motion to the factory of the future. 

Fluid Power & Systems, part of the co-location of events taking place at the NEC, Birmingham, which includes Drives & ControlsSmart Industry Expo, Plant & Asset Management, , and Air-Tech Exhibitions, will focus 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, monitoring and analytics.

Paul Cooke, Interim CEO of the British Fluid Power Association, commented that “The British Fluid Power Association is proud to be part of this important event for Fluid Power and Systems.” He added: “As you walk around the show you will see examples of how modern Fluid power will be connected, smart and flexible as well as providing safe and environmentally compatible means of providing motion for the machinery and for the factories of the future.”

This is highlighted by the vast array of technologies being exhibited. In addition, visitors will be able to meet different company divisions in one place, which is emphasised by FlowTech who says that Fluid Power & Systems Exhibition will be the first chance to meet all of its divisions under one roof – Pneumatics, Hydraulics, Industrial, Process Valves and Instrumentation.
