Design and development of a tomato manual slicing machine

  title={Design and development of a tomato manual slicing machine},
  author={S KamaldeenO.},
Principle of slicing was reviewed and tomato slicing machine was developed based on appropriate technology. Locally available materials like wood, stainless steel and mild steel were used in the fabrication. The machine was made to cut tomatoes in 2cm thickness. The capacity of the machine is 540.09g per minute and its performance efficiency is 70%.

Development and Performance Evaluation of Aloe Vera Leaf Slicing Machine
The Aloe plant belongs to a member of the family Liliaceae, which comprises more than 360 different species. Aloe Vera has a number of uses and mainly they are used as a food preservative and herbal
Tomatoes are an important component of the human diet but possess a very short post-harvest shelf-life which makes them highly perishable. This causes a problem in the transportation and handling of
Design and Simulation of A Vegetable Shredding and Washing Machine
–Value addition to vegetables prior to domestic use can be attained via processes such as hygienic washing, shredding, and packaging. Manual processing of vegetables is time-consuming while
Performance Evaluation of Aloe vera Leaf Slicing Machine
This work has shown that the time required to slice equal length of Aloe vera with the machine is 24 times less than the manual process, and the uniform sized slices obtained from the machine will give a uniform drying for further processing of whole leaf powder which is used in cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.
