Western Michigan University Parker-Hannifin Motion and Control Laboratory Overview

The Parker-Hannifin Motion and Control Laboratory at Western Michigan University was established in October 2003 following a grant from the Parker-Hannifin Corporation.  The intended purpose of the lab is to train the engineers of tomorrow in hydraulic, pneumatic, and electromechanical systems engineering.  This training is conducted via undergraduate and graduate class and lab work as well as graduate research projects.  The lab is currently focused on hydraulic system engineering experiences, however student exposure to pneumatic and electromechanical systems is planned to rise in the near future.
