machine and people need to be educated about what all can be done with such machine
In the field of engineering and science, ‘Nanotechnology’ seems to be the buzz word. Technically speaking, it is not an easy task to create something that is nano, considering that nano means engineering functional systems at molecular scale. However, it is a proven fact that scientists are capable of surprising the society and Azeem Suri, an electronic and telecommunication engineer from Nerul based RAIT College, who created India’s first nanotechnology electrochemical machine. Suri is chief executive officer at Vashi-based Sinergy Nano Systems. The ECM, named Hyper-10, was inaugurated on Friday. The machine would cater to the booming and emerging space of Micro and Nano Technology. The machine, after its inauguration, was handed over to Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, to help them conduct strategic research for the Defence Research and Development Organization project.
On the occasion, Suri said, “The making of the machine is a result of more than five years of extensive hard work. I started working on this machine in 2006 and the design and concept was ready on paper within a year. After that it took some time to get the machine ready considering the fact that I wanted it to be small table top machine, which could expand in all proportions. Suri added that he was well aware of the fact that there’s not a ready market for this technology, for such a machine and people need to be educated about what all can be done with such machine. “It was my mission to promote micro technology in our country by providing low cost, economic, easy to use and table top solution for educational institutes,” said Suri. The inaugural ceremony o Friday was attended by senior academicians, scientist and researchers and other dignitaries who praised of the new machine.
