Safe, reliable and efficient pneumatic systems -- Using ISO 4414 to design better
Presenter: Gary Baumgardner, Chief Engineer, Parker Hannifin Corp.
The safety of those who work with and around machines is of ever-increasing importance in today’s business environment, as are the reliability and efficiency of those machines. ISO 4414, Pneumatic fluid power – General rules and safety requirements for systems and their components, provides guidance on how to design and build pneumatic systems that enhance a machine’s safety, reliability and efficiency. This is the first in a series of six webinars scheduled for 2012 to help people learn how to use standards to design and build better fluid power systems, presented by leading experts on those standards. These webinars will focus on key issues facing the fluid power industry today:
• increasing energy efficiency
• improving reliability
• reducing environmental impact
• ensuring system safety
These webinars are free to employees of NFPA members. For those from companies that are not members of NFPA, there is a $50 charge per webinar, or $200 charge for the series of six presentations.
Go to www.nfpa.com for more information and/or to register. Once you have registered you will receive a separate confirmation email containing information about joining the January 26 webinar.
