Automatic Air Powered Pneumatic Potato Cutting Machine

Download Project Document/Synopsis



Here we propose a pneumatic based potato cutting machine that allows for fully automated potato cutting using pneumatic strength. We here use a pneumatic cylinder along with a potato holding tray that holds multiple potatoes. The tray is fitted with a system that pushes one potato at a time into the cutter while holding others in queue. So user just needs to put potatoes in the tray and this system does all the task automatically. Our system consists of a pneumatic cylinder that is integrated with a tray system with motorized potato mover to push one potato on the cutter at a time. The pneumatic cylinder then pushes the potato against the cutter to get the cut potato slices out and then next potato from the queue is pushed in front of the cutter by the tray. We use an electronic circuit to operate the valves that are connected between the pneumatic cylinder and compressor. We use pipes to make this air flow connection. The electronic circuitry operates these valves so as to achieve the desired cutting. This cutting motion is coordinated with the potato queue mechanism which pushes next potato in front of cutter after previous one is cut. Thus we demonstrate the use of a fully automated pneumatic potato cutting machine.
