Design and Development Services
Design and Development is a continuous activity at the Institute and it is purely
based on the emerging needs of the instrument industry. The main objective behind
the Institute’s design and development work is to transfer the technical know-how
developed to the instrument manufacturers or entrepreneurs on nonexclusive basis.
The Small Scale units, by and large, are not in a “position” to bear R&D expenditure
and moreover quite often they are not aware of the latest development trends.
The laboratory normally undertakes the development work in consultation with the
users as well as the manufacturers so that the right type of product is developed
which is commercially viable too. Institute’s achievements in the design and development
field and details on prototypes developed are published through Newsletters and
displays at exhibitions apart from individual contacts / communications. Entrepreneurs
and Manufacturers are always approaching the Institute for any design and development
assistance that may be required by them from time to time.
