Innovations of a Young Mind of SSN College
Affixing the seal has been an age – old process. But the ‘flame – less seal maker’ devised by K. Masha Nazeem would replace the centuries – old method of affixing a seal.
The hand – held instrument can melt lac – sticks using electricity without exposing them to the naked flames.
Officials in the government of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu have agreed to consider her model to be implemented in the sealing process.
This is not the only instrument this 20 – year old student of SSN Engineering College has devised.
She recently received the Ignite 2010 awards organised by the National Innovation Foundation from former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam for her latest innovation — a mechanical porter that can lift and place luggage in vehicles using a hand pedalling system.
The idea of devising a ‘lift carry and place trolley’ struck Masha when she encountered great difficulty in handling her luggage during her travels.
“The present model works on a power – free and maintenance free mechanism. I am also working on an alternative model that works on an improvised foot pedalling system to counter the inconveniences in the previous model,” says Masha Nazeem.
This student of SSN Engineering College has also received several accolades for her other innovations that include burglar alarm, VIP security system, conveyor belt, hi – tech train toilet, child safety system at petrol bunks, and a transparent test tool kit.
