Fluid power is the technology of generating, controlling, and applying smooth, effective power of pumped or compressed fluid, either a liquid (hydraulics) or air (pneumatics) to push, pull, rotate, regulate, or drive virtually all of the mechanisms of modern industry.
Fluid Power Technicians perform such tasks as:
- Designing fluid power systems.
- Installing fluid power systems and components, such as pumps, motors, compressors, valves, cylinders, and accessories.
- Troubleshooting and maintaining fluid power systems on such equipment as industrial machines, construction and agricultural machines, airplanes, ships, over-the-road vehicles and material handling devices.
- Testing and manufacturing fluid power systems and components.
- Conducting research on new concepts, applications, and improvements of fluid power systems.
- Manufacturing components and systems.
- Marketing and selling fluid power systems, working closely with customers of fluid power manufacturers and distributors.
