pE3D - Coating, repair and additive manufacturing in three dimensions

Ponticon's pE3D system has been developed for applications with unprecedented performance. The built-in high-performance components combine precision and speed and therefore enable the application of 3DMD technology for additive manufacturing, coating and repair in a large assembly space.

A sophisticated control concept paired with an intuitive user interface and an application-oriented CAM module ensures maximum convenience when operating the system. Countless material combinations and alloy compositions are available to the user, especially those that can not be processed using traditional processes for coatings and additive manufacturing. Flexibility is not limited to available materials though: thanks to the modular architecture, the system enables coverage of all relevant laser-based DED processes.

While industrial users benefit from the productivity of the pE3D system in coating, repair and additive manufacturing, research institutions and R&D departments particularly appreciate its unique flexibility. Software tools for systematic testing of process parameters and new material combinations complete the service portfolio and enable significant time savings for the end user.
