It takes too much time to dry Namdasometimes seasonal influence like rainy season (monsoon) and in winters this adds up to the problems of namda makers.
After preparing Namda it gets wet due to various fluids which are used in making this process at that time it is not ready for sale and workers has to make it dry before selling.It takes too much time to dry sometimes seasonal influence like rainy season (monsoon) and in winters it adds up to their problems. This leads to limit their manufacturing in this season when wool is largely available. In Kashmir valley Namda making is a famous art and and a good business too. Due to seasonal influence, bad whether the Namdaworkers are not able to full fill the desire of people and the tourists who are visiting Kashmir as they are very fond of Namda art as it represents the valley’s culture. They gets disappointed due to the unavailability of this product. Keeping these things in mind a small idea has illuminated my mind to bring forward this innovation.It is a cuboidal shaped metallic body. With moveable rolling rods connected with electric motors engulfed by conveyor belt which lifts Namda very slowly inside the machine to dry it. Hot air blowers are installed which dries Namda. Automatic heat controller exhaust is present in this machine to maintain normal temperature which is suitable for drying of Namda.It works on the principle of rotational and relative motion.Heating effects of electric current in blowers.Heat energy from heating source’s transfer to drying object through conduction.
Link: It can be used in cottage industry. Cheap, light weight and easy to handle It saves pretty much our human power etc. It would take only few minutes to dry the Namda, and will make Namda ready for marketing. This technology will save the precious time, which is wasted in drying the Namda’s.
Manufacturing Capacity: b) Design Support
Problem Scale: This is the traditional way of preparing Namda in Kashmir which is related and famous for the art of Kashmir.
