Traditionally areca-nut cutting work is done manually using cutters and there was no machine available to perform this tedious task smoothly. Innovator has developed areca-nut cutting machine which helped in reducing the drudgery involved to cut the nut.
This is an automatic machine which cuts areca-nut into smaller pieces. There is an inclined grader cum feeder, which sorts and feeds the areca-nuts into the cutting machine. The feeder has a vibrating system, which agitates the areca-nuts, separating them by passing through appropriate section according to their size.
- The grader feeds areca-nuts into the machine in six channels (for six different sizes of the nuts), and finally six cutters cut areca-nuts into 5, 8, 16, 24, 20, 12 pieces.
- The motor used is 1 hp single phase 1440 rpm Crompton greaves (GF 6782, 220-230 v), gear box, ratio 10:1
- Highly efficient as automatic machine can cut 175 Kg areca-nut /hr.
- This machine has got huge market potential in food processing industry.
