Fluid Power

Fluid Power technology is the often-overlooked workhorse behind modern manufacturing and automation of all kinds. Toolkit is proud to bring industry-standard technologies from global leading manufacturers into students’ hands with our remarkable Fluid Power Training Systems.

What is Fluid Power?

Encapsulating both hydraulics and pneumatics, fluid power leverages fluids (or air) under pressure to generate, control, and transmit power from one location to another.

Fluid power systems easily produce linear motion using hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders, whereas electrical and mechanical methods usually must use a mechanical device to convert rotational motion to linear.

Why Fluid Power Training?

Understand fluid power, controlling it, and troubleshooting fluid power circuits is vital to careers in many industrial segments – Manufacturing and Advanced Manufacturing, Heavy Truck and Agriculture Mechanics, Alternative Energy and More.

Did you know that fluid power technologies surround us everyday? Some example of this include: gas pumps; car brakes, dishwashers, airplanes, elevators, amusement park rides, office chairs, and more!
