Welcome

The COLA project will commercialise a new, cost-effective laser-assisted cold-spray technique, for high-quality deposition and repair, with key benefits for aerospace MRO and other operators over the competing processes of welding, thermal spray, laser-DMD and cold spray, offering improved deposit qualities, higher performance deposits, eg with higher strength and hardness, increased corrosion resistance and improved cost effectiveness.
