Abstract

In the production process for potato chips manufacturing industry, the concept of potato chips cutter is utilized for the fulfillment of the modern process. The production of potato is more in the rural area of Myanmar. The small industries are based on such type of activities which requires some skills for increased rate of cutting of chips with the minimum effort. The electrically operated device is designed to cut the raw potatoes into thin slices of thickness 3 mm approximately, suitable for frying and baking as potato chips. From the experiment, the capacity of mechanism is 4.3 kg of potato per minute. Locally and easily available materials like cast iron, mild steel and stainless steel are used for the construction of potato slicing machine. This machine allows in its simplicity of design and modest cost with the ability to generate thin uniform slices of the potatoes for the chips manufacturer with the help of electric power system
