Raghunath Manohar, deputy engineer in the advanced material testing laboratory of Mechanical Engineering, Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT), Manipal University received a U.S. patent for his invention, Marking Gauge. According to a press release by the university here on Friday, Mr. Manohar is the single inventor of the device which is a flexible marking tool for single and multiple parallel lines and vice versa, with variable depth of the scribing pins to suit the hardness of the material being marked. “I decided to come up with another which could perform better and was more useful in its application. It took me some time to work on it, and only five years ago I achieved a breakthrough,” Mr. Manohar said. “I immediately applied for a patent to the US and in just four and half years I was awarded the patent (US 9085079 B2),” he added. “I am grateful for the support I received from Manipal University and Head of Mechanical Department at Manipal Institute of Technology, Divakar Shetty,” Mr. Manohar said. – Raghunath Manohar is the single inventor of Marking Gauge.
