Abstract

In the automation of the production process for food industry, especially for the fruits and vegetable sector the concept automation is used and utilized for saving the cutting time. In the many area like domestic, restaurants and some small scale fruits industries where cutting of fruits and vegetables are cuts manually, need to replace by automated machine which requires some skill for increased rate of cutting of chips, with minimum effort, that can be reduce the chances of cutting by sharp edges of the cutter to the operator and save work load with faster rate in order to increase cutting quality and productivity. The design purpose is to design a automatic fruit slicer machine is to cut/slice many fruits like apple, cucumber, carrots, as well as vegetables like potato, onions all are sliced uniformly even size and also it requires a skilled worker to slice them evenly. The project purpose includes the electrically operated motor which is prime power source and rotary blade attachment with the power transmission system like pulley, belt shaft. The capacity of mechanism is 60-80 kg of fruits and vegetable per hour. Locally and easily available materials like cast iron, mild steel and stainless steel are used for the fabrication. This machine allows in its simplicity of design and modest cost with the ability to generate thin uniform slices.
