On Wednesday 26 April 2017, in the Allerheiligen church in the Residenz Palace in Munich, Federal President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier, accompanied by Bavarian Prime Minister Horst Seehofer, met in a 1: 1 discussion with founder Katharina Kreitz and Florian Wehner of Vectoflow.
The two managing directors were delighted to explain the innovative technology and the success story of Vectoflow. Mrs Elke Büdenbender was also eager to ask questions and was fascinated by the possible applications: "By means of 3D printing, we adapt our measuring technology to the respective application perfectly. In this way, we are enormously increasing the measurement quality and help our customers to develop efficient systems", explained Katharina Kreitz.
The Federal President was surprised how filigree and precise the probes of Vectoflow are manufactured. "We have specialized in the 3D printing of very precise geometries. In this way, we can build the smallest multi-hole probes in the world", Kreitz adds. However, printing of flow probes is not limited to metal, Vectoflow also prints ceramic probes for high temperature applications.
Horst Seehofer underlined the importance of the existing close contact between Vectoflow and the Technical University of Munich. "We are working closely together with the TU Munich in research", explains the founder. "In this way, we increase efficiency of the development process and improve the measurement quality."
