The biennial co-located events: Fluid Power & Systems, Drives & Controls, Smart Industry Expo, Plant & Asset Management, and Air-Tech Exhibitions – are once again set to return to Birmingham’s NEC between the 5-7 April 2022, alongside MACH.

With only weeks to go, Fluid Power & Systems Exhibition 2022, which forms part of the co-location of events that includes Drives & Controls, Smart Industry Expo, Plant & Asset Management, and Air-Tech Exhibitions, will focus on a comprehensive range of hydraulic and pneumatic equipment, together with products that facilitate better electro-mechanic system design and application for improved process automation, control, monitoring and analytics.

Fully supported by the British Fluid Power Association (BFPA), Fluid Power & Systems comprises the largest gathering of world-class companies displaying and demonstrating the latest in mechanical and electro-mechanical equipment.

Paul Cooke, Interim CEO of the British Fluid Power Association, commented that “The British Fluid Power Association is proud to be part of this important event for Fluid Power and Systems.” He added: “As you walk around the show you will see examples of how modern Fluid power will be connected, smart and flexible as well as providing safe and environmentally compatible means of providing motion for the machinery and for the factories of the future.”

This is highlighted by the vast array of technologies being exhibited. In addition, visitors will be able to meet different company divisions in one place, which is emphasised by FlowTech who says that Fluid Power & Systems Exhibition will be the first chance to meet all of its divisions under one roof – Pneumatics, Hydraulics, Industrial, Process Valves and Instrumentation.

Whatever your industrial sector, whether engineering, construction, offshore/marine, oil & gas, agriculture/farming, automotive, aerospace etc., Fluid Power & Systems offers a convenient one-stop shop for all your fluid power and system requirements, including:

  • Hydraulics: industrial and mobile, including pumps and power packs, cylinders, valves, motors, heat exchangers, and accumulators. Filters and sealing technologies.
  • Pneumatics: valve and valve islands, linear and rotary actuators, air motors, FRLs and other treatment technologies.
  • Systems: Electro-hydraulic & pneumatic systems design; CAN bus technology; process automation; monitoring & control; modelling & simulation.
  • Instrumentation: Sensors, switches and controls as applied to fluid power: Temperature, flow, pressure, liquid level, position.

Within the context of Fluid Power, there is no better event for the industry than Fluid Power & Systems. To see the wide range of exhibitors please visit:

Talking Industry Live & The Knowledge Hub

Running alongside Fluid Power & Systems Exhibition 2022 and the co-location of events will be Talking Industry Live and The Knowledge Hub seminar theatres.

Talking Industry Live will include CPD accredited panel discussions that will fully reflect the ongoing global transformation to the smart manufacturing era and provide fascinating panel discussions and insight into the potential plants of the future.

Of particular interest to those visiting Fluid Power & Systems Exhibition 2022 will be the focus on Fluid Power and Factories of the Future, with a Talking Industry Live panel discussion on the topic being led by Paul Cooke, Interim CEO, The British Fluid Power Association (BFPA).

The live debate will examine how modern fluid power is an important sector for UK Industry with a large percentage of all production being at least in part dependent on this technology to create motion. With the backdrop of Industry 4.0, fluid Power (pneumatics and hydraulics) will adapt and deliver with the pre-requisite also of safety, efficiency, and environmental demands. Fluid power will be connected, smart and flexible as well as providing safe and environmentally compatible means of providing motion to the factory of the future.

The panel will hear from expert presenters on how both pneumatics and hydraulics are developing and providing solutions for today and tomorrow to our factories of the future.

While The Knowledge Hub seminar theatre will have a strong emphasis on technology that will bring together all aspects of plant and asset management, hydraulics, pneumatics, robotics and automation, energy efficiency, machine safety, drives, motion control, legislation, system strategies and technological developments. Featuring representatives from across industry including government agencies, research bodies, trade associations, and manufacturers.
