The success of today's fluid power applications makes it certain that fluid power will carry a bigger and bigger load in tomorrow's world.
One reason is automation - remote control, automatic control, more machinery for manipulating and moving parts and products between processes. This is fluid power's bailiwick. A fluid can go anywhere a pipe or tube can go. Valve levers and pushbuttons are all that are required to start, stop, and control a fluid power system. And the air or hydraulic cylinder, and the fluid motor, are among the most versatile "manipulators" the engineer has at his command.
Another is design simplification - fewer parts, less complicated mechanisms, putting output of power closer to points of use. Here again, more fluid power! A pump, a fluid, controls, piping, hose, or tubing, and a cylinder or fluid motor, are all there are to a fluid power system. Smooth, effective motion is its prime characteristic.
Fluid power is, indeed, an expanding industry.
