Power & Motion 2022 Fluid Power Forecast Features Mike Terzo
Sacramento, CA: In the News – powermotiontech.com
February 1, 2022 – Power & Motion magazine’s 2022 industry forecast and survey of fluid power trends includes input from Mike Terzo on new power sources, the new control functions and an emphasis on clean fuels and environmentally sound practices.
According to the article:
The evolution of how power is generated and controlled has opened new vistas of innovation and new possibilities for the effective and efficient use of energy. Business leaders are planning for an electrified future that reduces carbon emissions—but they have to build that future with the existing technology in order to realize that goal.
At the intersection of all of this is the fluid power industry. The power factor of hydraulics and the precision of pneumatics have evolved over time to more hybrid approaches that include electrification—yet the value propositions that propelled each technology in the past remain valid for the next generation of systems. The future of off-highway construction will be impacted by a coming acceleration of electric vehicles that reduce emissions and maintenance and provide for autonomous operation.
And overlaying all of this is the proliferation of available data on system performance, fuel optimization and machine health. The use of sensors and analytics to identify what is happening in plants across the world has increased, and that data has opened new windows into ways to improve every aspect of a system.
In Power & Motion’s discussion with a wide range of industry leaders on these topics, the new power sources, the new control functions and an emphasis on clean fuels and environmentally sound practices won’t displace the traditional fluid power technology any time soon.
