Coating, Repair and Additive Manufacturing

Production of high-performance components

The systems and process expertise of ponticon enables industry-grade application of 3D-EHLA technology for the first time. This technology is utilized whenever special requirements regarding wear, corrosion and temperature resistance of high-performance components cannot be achieved with conventional methods for coatings, repair and additive manufacturing due to limited material availability, insufficient build-up rates or too much post-processing effort. Applications are rooted in turbomachinery, aerospace, tooling, mining, oil&gas and automotive industry as well as in generation and storage of renewable energy.

Depending on the application, the pontiCOAT®, pontiFIX® or pontiBUILD® technologies are used with an application-specific material.
