Advancements in the use and deployment of sensors, collaborative robots and artificial intelligence in manufacturing plants are transforming the capabilities of manufacturing systems. Simultaneously, convergent manufacturing platforms are emerging that seamlessly integrate new techniques such as additive manufacturing with conventional processing. These rapidly maturing capabilities enable the manufacture of new types of products with unique features such as embedded sensing, multi-functional surfaces, and multi-material interfaces, among others. This talk will discuss the availability and utility of these technologies on the manufacturing floor, and how they are being used to drive enhancements in product design. The presentation will also provide some insight into the direction that artificial intelligence is heading in manufacturing operations, and the types of opportunities and value propositions that they will enable in the very near future. These new areas will revolutionize manufacturing operations from the production floor to the global supply chain, and there is no end in sight in terms of the opportunities and benefits.
Filters are the unsung heroes of every fluid power system, protecting and conditioning while asking nothing in return. This presentation covers the essentials of filter design and selection, from ISO Codes to filter media. There is more to consider when selecting a hydraulic filter than most think, and the only thing on the line is, oh, your entire hydraulic system!
Essential concepts like filter efficiency, design and operation will be discussed so you can up your filtration game.
Slip-in logic valve circuits are used in demanding applications that require long-life, low leakage, and high flow. Hydraulic valve circuits can be packaged in several unique ways depending on the application and working environment in which they exist. The way the valve systems are housed makes the packages look different, even though they are operationally remarkably similar.
In this session, Sheaf will give an overview of hydraulic logic (slip-in) valve circuits, with in-depth discussion of the following:
• Pressure control,
• Flow control,
• And directional valves
Ready…Set…Connect! How Hydraulic Multi-Connectors Can Work for You.
CEJN, a leading manufacturer of quick connect coupling solutions, will share insights and ideas of how a hydraulic multi-coupling can add value for both the equipment/attachment manufacturer and its end customers.
As our hydraulic industry continues to evolve, equipment/attachment manufacturers are tasked with finding and creating additional value for their end customers. Often times this is accomplished by utilizing components that offer operator time savings, ease of operation use, and the reduction of human mistakes… especially in areas with which the end customer interacts (i.e. quick coupling connection between the machinery and attachments).
CEJN is a global company with manufacturing located in Skövde, Sweden, where we develop, manufacture and market quick-connect couplings and accessories within the fields of pneumatics, hydraulics, and fluids.

Our tech service group and engineers supply the expertise to solve your problems with 30+ years of experience. DMIC is U.S. quality, expertise and safety.
Through several use case examples, Adam Livesay will highlight how using IoT will help increase efficiency and reliability of your machines.
In a post-COVID world, how we buy and our expectations on service and delivery have radically changed. As Amazon continues to disrupt industry after industry, how safe is the fluid power market and our traditional methods of doing business? Would you believe that Amazon now far outranks Google on where the majority of people search for products, including industrial parts? Customers now have more information at their digital fingertips than ever before, and distributors may be scrambling to keep up differentiated service values. Ecommerce vs. traditional distribution will come to a head in the 2020’s.
Join Jeremy Drury as he explores who may come out on top, and how each side can prepare for the battle ahead. This presentation will seek to inform both customers and suppliers alike by exploring all of the new and advanced digital capabilities that come with buying online, and a few pitfalls as well. Jeremy has led companies on both sides of the fence and his final answer may surprise you.
