International Journal of Applied Research in Mechanical Engineering


This paper gives the reader an insight in to the work we went through to invent the concept for an automated Industrial Sardine cutting machine. The challenge given to us by the Industry was to prototype a machine that can cut and gut the head of sardines automatically on a large scale. Variation of Fish size is not too much of a concern as the raw material is graded fish. We set out to invent a simple but strong concept resulting in a machine with minimal complexity which will reduce the cost of production and also improve the ease of maintenance. This paper is testament to how we achieved a supposedly complex automation using simple mechanical automation. To support our concept we also set out to build a prototype of the proposed machine to prove this concept will work.
