The 12th International Fluid Power Conference (IFK) will be held in the International Congress Center Dresden (ICD) on March 9-11, 2020. The IFK is one of the world’s most significant scientific conferences on fluid power control technology and systems. It offers a common platform for the presentation and discussion of trends and innovations to manufacturers, users and scientists.

The theme of the 12th IFK will be “Fluid Power – Future Technology!”. The covered topics will enable the development of 5G-ready, cost-efficient and demand-driven structures, as well as individual decentralized drives. Further topics are real-time data exchange that allows the application of numerous predictive maintenance strategies, which will significantly increase the availability of fluid power systems and their elements and ensure their improved lifetime performance.

The main focus of our research is to solve technical problems in an application oriented fashion and to improve sustainable architectures and designs.
