The Hope Group Sponsoring Motion Technology Workshops

To keep things in motion, we use hydraulics and pneumatics. On the pneumatic side of things, that includes compressed air and that’s a specialty of Hope Air Systems, a subsidiary of THG Corporation. During the first week of October, The Hope Group and Hope Air Systems are sponsoring workshops to help our hydraulic and pneumatic customers meet their motion and control requirement. We are bringing in the Parker Tech Tour Truck to anchor this week-long series of workshops.

The Energy Conservation workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, October 7, 2014, from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM at THG’s headquarters in Northborough, MA. Expert instructors will take participants through an overview on how air compressor controls work and how to measure air usage. We will also discuss how rebates can be obtained from local utilities as a method for making the investment in new equipment a more economic venture.

This workshop has been well attended in the past, at The Hope Group, and I recommend that you register early to be assured of a seat. To register, log on to You may also call Cathy Donohue at 508-351-1809.

The Energy Conservation workshop is just one of five offered during the visit of the Parker Tech Tour Truck to THG Corporation. Other workshops will be Hands-on Thread ID, VMI and Integrated Supply, Pneumatic/Automation Fieldbus and Hands-on Hydraulic Workshop, featuring filtration, VSD, and diagnostic techniques for hydraulic systems.
