The VectoDAQ Air Data System consists of an air data computer and a leightweight flow measurement probe made with additive manufacturing, like all of Vectoflow’s probes. It is designed for simultaneous measurements of multiple pressure and temperature signals and data reduction of the data to obtain flow values like angle of attack, true air speed and flight height.
Vectoflow launches a new product line of unsteady flow probes with embedded pressure sensors. In the same way as all other Vectoflow products, the new unsteady probes are highly customizable and extremely robust at the same time, due to Vectoflow’s optimized additive manufacturing method. The probes are available with 1 up to 7 holes (others on request) and come with a frequency and angular calibration.
Vectoflow continues its efforts in improving existing flow measurement systems continuously and developing innovative new probes in order to be able to meet the requirements of our customers. The latest example is the start of a collaborative development project together with the Chair of Aerodynamics and Fluid mechanics of the TU of Munich. The goal is to develop a new innovative multihole flow probe, bringing together the experience of both partners, who already have a long history of mutual support.
Ten STEM interested girls in the age of 10-14 years visited Vectoflow last Thursday.
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.
Vectoflow presented their products at the ASME Turbo Expo 2016. Dr. Christian Haigermoser and Katharina Kreitz showed the participants of the event the whole Vectoflow portfolio of flow probes and measurement systems, including the miniature 5-hole probe with a tip diameter of 0.9mm and the ceramic 3D-printed 5-hole probe able to withstand temperatures up to 2050 K. The resonance of all the visitors extremely positive.
The Vectoflow GmbH could convince the jury, together with 9 other Start-ups, of their business plan and were chosen winners of the award.
