At this year’s Advanced Automotive Aerodynamics Conference, Vectoflow again took first place in the Best Automotive Aerodynamics Supplier nomination.
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.
During this year‘s edition of the Advanced Automotive Aerodynamic Conference, Vectoflow was voted the „best automotive aerodynamics supplier“ by the top-flight attendees.
After presenting their 3D-printer, EOS P 500, EOS is planning further developments within the 3D-printing sector. Agreements have been made with the chemical company Arkema for developing a new high-tech polymer. There are already existing cooperations with Evonik and BASF for the development of future polymers.
One of the largest turbomachinery conferences was held in Charlotte N.C., USA in the last week of June. 3500 attendees and deciders from universities and businesses across the world came to exchange the latest knowledge in research and development. Vectoflow took part as one of the 100 exhibitors.
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.
