Project Title Manual Precision Fruit Slicer
Project Category Innovation
Abstract Sliced fruits are commonly used by restaurants or fruit stalls for fruit desserts. It is time consuming to slice fresh fruit free hand using a regular knife and also cannot produce uniform cuts. The Manual Precision Fruit Slicer consists of a chopping board fitted with accessories that holds the fruits for stability and a calibrator to adjust the thickness of fruit slices. After each slicing process, there is a releaser and ejector using a spring system to free the newly-fruit slicers from the knife and dropping them in a bucket. The Manual Precision Fruit Slicer is a definite necessity to slice fruit for mass production at a high production rate which is economical for delivery to restaurants and fruit stalls, giving uniform cuts in less time than it takes by hand. It is also safer than a regular knife and protects hands. Being manually operated, it also saves electricity.
