Organisation profile

The Centre for Power Transmission and Motion Control (PTMC) has a world-leading reputation as a centre of excellence in many aspects of fluid power, actuation, and the dynamics and control of electro-mechanical systems.

The Centre undertakes research, runs CPD courses and offers consultancy services to industry. Every year since 1988 the Centre has hosted or co-hosted an international symposium on Fluid Power and Motion Control (FPMC). It is also a founder member of the Fluid Power Centres of Europe (FPCE), a grouping of the foremost research institutions in the field.
