IFPEX - the ideal forum

The International Fluid Power Exhibition (IFPEX) ( - to be held at Birmingham's NEC from 17-19 April - continues to attract new major names. Some of the most recent signatories include: Tom Parker, Schwer, Allswage, IMM Hydraulics, PREVOST, MP Filtri UK, and Micro Mesh Engineering.

The International Fluid Power Exhibition (IFPEX) has always provided the ideal forum; as much for important networking as for displays of the latest products, services, advice and guidance. This was reflected in an increase in exhibitors up from 59 to 61 (3% growth) in 2010.

Together with the more traditional mechanical hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical/electronic disciplines, electro-hydraulics systems are now becoming increasingly common within various industry sectors - and with many convincing benefits to report. Indeed, it is impossible to ignore the impressive advances in electronics with fluid power systems; offering benefits in all areas; including fuel consumption, noise, emissions and systems monitoring. The later of these items of course adds to reliability with the ability to spot potential problems before they cause damage. Real-time condition monitoring saves real money. With this in mind, IFPEX will feature a number of leading industry players who are geared to explain all the benefits of such solutions and outline how such systems could prove ideal for organisations.

Primary sponsor
Tom Parker will be exhibiting at IFPEX 2012 as primary sponsors to celebrate its 40th anniversary as a trading business.

The company will be highlighting its 2012-2013 catalogue, which it will be launching in January.

Tom Parker will also be demonstrating its core brands; including CEJN, CPC, Master Pneumatic, CDC Pneumatic, the newly launched SICO-AIR Ringmain System and other new brands and products.

Sebastian Cole, sales manager, commented: "Like our catalogue, the Air-Tech and IFPEX exhibition is specifically for the pneumatic and hydraulic industry and as such, a key event to target new customers and keep relationships fresh with existing partners."
IFPEX 2010 was a highly successful exhibit for Tom Parker and gave them the opportunity to meet face to face with many key decision makers.

Past success
After the success of the 2010 IFPEX, CEJN UK Limited has decided to exhibit again at the 2012 show: "The interest the last show generated in our products means that it would be a shame to miss the opportunity, With increasing interest in our expanding hydraulic range we will have new products to show that will interest the distribution and OEM markets. We will also be showing our new multi flow blow gun and other exciting product developments."

Prevost says IFPEX 2012 will provide an excellent opportunity to exhibit its range of new products to a broad spectrum of customers.

It will have live demonstrations of new products including its "one touch" quick release safety couplings incorporating safety, energy efficiency, quality and ALR its aluminium pipework stocked in the UK for next day delivery.

Mike Abbott UK sales manager commented: " Prevost is looking forward to IFPEX, I have exhibited there previously and the level of enquiries is very good. You have an opportunity to meet high profile contacts with serious potential."

First timer
MFP(UK) Ltd will be exhibiting its own manufactured range of USA profiled hydraulic seals, including its patented X-Pac, plus U rings, piston seals and wipers.

Its own manufactured product, plus the other ranges of USA styles will enable the company to give people a further choice on their supplier for inch sized seals. It will also show its stock holding range of metric hydraulic seals, and wear rings. Thirdly it will have a sample range of its Michael Stevens replacement seal kits.

This will be the first time the company has exhibited at IFPEX. After its second successful participation at the recent Hannover Fair in April, it was decided to show its presence at IFPEX.

The International Fluid Power Exhibition (IFPEX) forms part of the co-location of events at the NEC, Birmingham between the 17-19 April 2012, alongside, MACH, Drives and Controls, Air-Tech, and Plant & Asset Management 2012.
