Recent developments and news at the pressure probe manufacturing firm Vectoflow.

Vectoflow Product Lauch: VectoDAQ Air Data System

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 product launch: Fast Response Measurement Systems

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.



ASME TurboExpo 2018 – a resounding success

The booth was often filled to capacity and included a demonstration wind tunnel with 2-axis traverse and a 5-hole probe as well as examples of the diverse probes and rakes offered by Vectoflow. The most popular of these was a turbine vane outfitted with 8 individual 3-hole probe heads, all with the pressure channels led out through the vane body to the base. A close second was a 3D printed 5-hole ceramic probe (Al2O3) capable of over 2050K enabling low conduction error combustion measurements.



Swiss AM Guide 2018 – How 3D printing revolutionizes measurement technology

The application case of Vectoflow impressively shows how tailor-made flow measurement technology can be fabricated for many different areas. The advantages of additive manufacturing regarding design, size and material are leveraged in a targeted manner and combined with expertise in measurement technology. In this way, it is possible to offer customized flow measurement probes, which are robust, flexible, integral, and measure with high precision.



Vectoflow Seeks Pilot Customers for New Airdata System

You are currently developing an UAV or a drone? You need date on airspeed, pitch and yaw angles, barometric height as well as air temperature? And you want to use this data live or later for performance analysis and control? We are currently developing a small, robust air data system made up of a probe for three dimensional flow measurement and the measurement electronics that outputs all relevant flight data directly and digitally.
