Sanjeevani Oxygen Concentrator

IIT Kanpur signed an MoU today in a virtual ceremony with Albot Technologies Pvt. Ltd. for the commercialisation of an advanced low-cost oxygen concentrator based on the Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) technology.
While respiratory diseases are common in India, this is even more important as we are fighting COVID19. The importance of developing and commercialising such medical devices is critical to provide assistance for a sufficient supply of oxygen as and when needed. Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur is working on many initiatives to expedite the development of indigenous low-cost innovative medical devices with an aim to make India self-sufficient.
The developed technology includes a galvanic type oxygen sensor for oxygen purity along with temperature & humidity sensors, with an adjustable capacity of up to 10 LPM. It works at a flow rate of 10 LPM with an oxygen purity of 92% ± 3, which can be used for medical and personal use. The oxygen concentrator has been developed by a team led by Prof. J. Ramkumar, Department of Mechanical Engineering, along with Mr Siddhanth Srivastava, Mr Jitendra Kumar, Dr Amandeep Singh Oberoi, Mr Rupendra Aryal and Mr Nitin Chaukhat.
Joined by Mr Akash Singh (Founder of Albot Technologies), Mr Manoj Srivastava (India Head, Albot Technologies), Prof. Amitabha Bandyopadhyay (Professor In-Charge, Innovation & Incubation, IIT Kanpur), Prof. AR Harish (Dean R&D, IIT Kanpur) and Prof. J. Ramkumar, Department of Mechanical Engineering.

Bead Blasting Station

Bead blasting is a finishing technique for 3D-printed parts. It’s an abrasive blasting method, which means that it is similar to sandblasting and water blasting (pressure washing). In bead blasting, fine beads of plastic, glass, or another substance are forcibly sprayed over the surface of a part. The type of beads are chosen depending on the part’s material in order to smooth the finish of the part without damaging it.

Bead blasting creates a uniform matte finish over the surface of the part. Most customers consider this the standard finish—build markings are smoothed out, but additional high quality finishing has not been applied. It’s ideal for assessing a prototype, or for finishing a piece that doesn’t need a “show ready” finish. Bead blasting also makes it easier to photograph parts because it reduces the light reflections from the part’s surface. For pieces that will be used for sales meetings and trade shows, most customers prefer a higher quality finish.

Vapour Smoothing

  • Vapor Smoothing is a fast, effective way to achieve a smooth finish for your 3D Printed Objects. By using the ULTRA Vapor Smoothing System, 3D printed parts can be finished to a fine smoothness without losing the detail of the original printed part.
  • Consistent, uniform results to every part that is vapor smoothed.
  • Significantly reduced processing times from hours to minutes.
  • Smoothing of parts with complex geometries and intricate angles.
  • Easy removal of small layer lines.
  • Smoothing of most FDM thermoplastics including ABS and ASA.
  • Elimination of the use of flammable solvents like Acetone and THF.
