This project is to fabricate a coconut husk remover with shell cutter. At
present coconut husk is being removed manually which employs more time and
more man power. This coconut husk remover peels off the coconut husk from
coconut fruit to obtain de-husked coconut fruit via pneumatic controlled dehusking
device. An operator is required to handle the machine during the dehusking
process. It can be used to de-husk both matured coconut and young
coconut. This project consists of pneumatic cylinder, solenoid valve, linkages,
husk remover and base frame.
In this there are two main parts are there. one part is for removing the husk
from the coconut and the another is cutting part. In both parts pneumatic systems
are used. The husk is removed with help of hinge joint which is connected with the
pneumatic actuator. By connecting these two parts we fabricated as "coconut husk
remover with shell cutter".
