Abstract:
Manually peeling of pineapple is a time consuming and labor intensive process. Pineapple peelers are required for removing the outer skin and inner core of pineapple quickly. Therefore, a hand operated pineapple peeling machine was designed to remove the core which works satisfactorily with easy operation. Twenty numbers of pineapple fruits can easily be peeled by worker in one hour with this designed device. Static simulation of the developed machine was carried out to check the strength of newly designed cutting blade. Peeling time and peeling weight loss of the developed machine was found to be 191 s and 35.5%, respectively.
