Maha Fluid Power Research Center, sponsored by Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana, is the largest academic hydraulics lab in the USA. With 15,000 square feet of space, the top minds in fluid power conduct world-class research on hydraulic pumps, motors, and systems -- both computer modeling, and real-world experimentation.
The lab currently hosts dozens of ongoing projects, both from academia and industry. Read more about the groundbreaking work at Maha:
The lab was formed in 2004 by a $4 million endowment from fluid power pioneer Otto Maha. Dr. Monika Ivantysynova moved from TUHH in Hamburg-Harburg, Germany to become Maha's director, where she served until her passing in 2018.
