The 14th International Fluid Power Colloquium (14th IFK) will take place in Dresden, Germany, from March 19 to 21, 2024. As one of the world’s most important conferences in the field of fluid-mechatronic systems, the IFK has become a central forum for international exchange in the fluid power industry. During the conference and the accompanying technical exhibition, users, manufacturers, and scientists will have the opportunity to present innovations and discuss development trends. The IFK is headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Weber (Chair of Fluidtronics, TU Dresden) and has been held every 2 years since 1998, alternating between Aachen and Dresden.
The thematic focus of the conference will be on the enormous variety of novel drive and system architectures for a growing diversity of fluid power applications. The challenges of the novel system architectures must necessarily be overcome. The resulting solutions will help to master the technical and social tasks of tomorrow. Increasing digitization in all areas and the permanently growing demand for efficiency are opening up new opportunities for fluid technology and at the same time presenting it with new tasks. In addition, alternative fluids in particular and their conditioning in the drive system are becoming increasingly important.
The IFK team around Prof. Weber is looking forward to interested participants and exciting contributions from all competence and application areas of fluid-mechatronics!
March 19-21, 2024
