The abstracts of the patented technologies are given below. These patents are awarded for the R&D work of Dr. M.S.Parmer, Head of Research & Product Development & his team.

Both these patented technologies are due for commercial exploitation. Expression of interest is sought from suitable partners, preferably a machine manufacturer for the second patent.
