Success Story

Technology Transfer Partnerships: CenterLine (OTTN-RCN)


Working closely with the University of Ottawa and the Ottawa Technology Transfer Network (OTTN), Windsor-based company CenterLine is developing a cold-spray delivery product that it hopes will revolutionize the manufacturing industry. The patented shockwave technology, developed at the University of Ottawa and licensed to CenterLine, is designed to eliminate the need for heat used in traditional sprays to repair, restore and refurbish industrial equipment. The new technology is expected to streamline existing manufacturing processes, reduce scrap, and improve recycling and refurbishing activities.

In June 2010, two Ontario graduate students working with CenterLine presented their research to date at an international cold-spray-technology symposium and won first and second place.
