At SHOT Show 2023, PTR unveiled their range of monolithic 3D-printed Titanium suppressors. The VENT range uses additive manufacturing to avoid the possibility of weaknesses caused by welding. It has internal geometries designed to reduce blowback into the operator’s face and produce less wear and tear on the weapon system.

At the tip of the suppressor PTR have included a metal foam structure which they describe as ‘Purposely Induced Porosity’. This allows gas to escape out of the can by breathing through it. This metal foam structure has a high surface area to remove heat, slow gas velocities and increase flow rate.
Here’s what PTR have to say about the new VENT suppressors:
The new, ultra-nigh performance VENT Suppressor utilizes the next generation of suppressor technology. The design features sintered titanium and patented Purposely Induced Porosity (PIP), which enables it to out perform nearly every competitor in on the market with its unique combination of lightweight, heat dissipation, sound suppression, and back pressure reduction.
These suppressors employ a 3D-printed, monolithic, body-to-core structure, increasing their structural integrity and thermal resilience. This revolutionary design eliminates failure points often associated with traditional suppressors. Through the use of Purposely Induced Porosity (PIP), PTR’s engineers are able to finely tune the strength, density, heat capacity, and thermal conductivity of the VENT suppressors in ways that are beyond the capabilities of traditional manufacturing.
This industry leading technology creates a new way to control the rapid expansion of gas that traditional bathe and now through suppressors are unable to achieve, making the new line of VENT suppressors truly cutting-edge and superior in the marketplace.
The VENT range of cans are light, weighing in at between 7.6 oz and 12.3 oz depending on caliber. PTR expect them to be available in the summer. Find out more at www.ptr-us.com.
