…and so the fluid flows…

From the Editor’s Desk…

We are in the midst of festivals all along from end September to end December, for all religions to celebrate. It is apt to plan for a festival of sorts for our professional society also. Of course it is a birth day, but this time we are well ahead in planning the completion of 50 golden years of its existence, as the Golden Jubilee celebrations, for all regions to celebrate. Just as in a human experience, this golden jubilee is a milestone in the life of our society.

The Fluid Power Society of India was established in the year 1973 as a non -profit professional body committed to promoting fluid power knowledge and technology in the country. The fluid power industry also evolved comprehensively over the last five decades and has generated intensive research, efficient production systems and the best of all , a variety of integrated applications, interlinking many allied technologies.

The fluid power is applied in various sectors, like agri, infra, aero and the like. With its inherent versatility, newer applications are being developed. Automation and iIoT are some of the all invasive applications. Interaction with mechanical, electrical, electronic engineering aspects makes it more widely adaptive. With the innovations being the driving force for this decade, many more applications involving fluid power are expected, be it in the domain of healthcare or energy utilities.

Since the fluid power applications are many, the golden jubilee celebrations have to encompass many areas. Hence the golden jubilee celebrations will start in 2022 and end in 2024, peaking in 2023, which is the golden jubilee year.

Await the announcement of the details of these Golden Jubilee Celebrations!!!

Let the fluid flow!!
