BROADENING HYDRAULIC FLUID POWER KNOWLEDGE
Welcome to the eighth edition of the Fluid Power Handbook. Every year, our editorial staff works hard to add to the detailed information we’ve already accumulated on hydraulic and pneumatic components and systems. Once again this year, we’ve incorporated some new frequently asked questions into many of the Handbook sections. We have had positive feedback to this concept, and I hope you’ll find the new topics useful in your daily work. As always, we have updated the graphical look of the issue, too. You will find updated sections on many components and other areas of fluid power interest, some all-new concepts, and a trends piece on how additive manufacturing is changing the way fluid power components — valves and manifolds in particular — are designed and made.
