The show, co-located with CONEXPO-CON/AGG, will be held March 7 - 11 and will showcase the latest innovations and expertise in the fluid power, power transmission and motion control industries.
IFPE is owned by National Fluid Power Association (NFPA), Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) and National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA). AEM is the show producer.
There will be over 450 exhibitors featuring the latest products and innovations in the following categories:

Quite a few Tribute customers, trade association and manufacturing partners will be at the expo. Look for Tribute customers Air-Way Manufacturing, Brennan Industries, Linde Hydraulics, Midwest Hose & Specialty and T-Bird Group.
This year IFPE will present Project AME (Additive Manufactured Excavator), the first fully-functional 3D printed excavator and the first large-scale use of steel in 3D printing. The technology will allow for innovative integration of fluid power with the printed boom having fluid flow passages embedded inside the superstructure.
IFPE 2017 will be filled with educational opportunities. These education events provide crucial information on new fluid power, power transmission and motion control technologies to engineers and others involved in the design and manufacturing process.
Tim Reynolds and Bill Horrigan from Tribute, Inc. will be attending IFPE. If you're interested in learning more about our business management software, TrulinX, for industrial distributors and fabricators, contact Tribute to set up a meeting at the show.
