The Digital Fluid Power workshops have been arranged annually since 2008 alternating between Linz and Tampere. This is the third time in Tampere and the number of participants is as high as 114 from 11 countries, 33 companies and 8 universities despite bad economic situation.
The digital fluid power technology is developing rapidly and new principles still emerges. The component availability is better and several papers present research results with commercial digital valves. The good old days with self-wound coils and fuming power electronics seem to be ending. Other trends are sophisticated control methods, which consider digital nature of the systems, energy efficient fully digital solutions, and faster and more compact valves.
