Rotating Blade for Natural Fiber Extraction Machine

PI 2019005430

 

INTRODUCTION  OF TECHNOLOGY

 To achieve the objectives, there are two area of interest in this design where first is on the number of blade and second is on the angle at blade’s tip.

Besides that, the machine had no complex mechanical mechanism which eventually reduces greatly it's fabrication cost. To achieve the objectives, there are two area of interest in this design where first is on the number of blade and second is on the angle at blade’s tip.

Besides that, the machine had no complex mechanical mechanism which eventually reduces greatly it's fabrication cost. A rotating blade apparatus is to extract natural fiber product from such as pineapple leaf.

 

Industry application

Agriculture & Textile

 

MARKET POTENTIAL

There are 3,062 pineapple estates in Malaysia (2012) and 16,850 acre of plantations (2010), producing 416,00 tonne metric fruits. Malaysia is 9th world exporter. Pineapples grow best on peat soil (like in Malaysia) which requires manual handling tools. Globally, Costa Rica, Thailand and Philippines, Indonesia, Kenya, Brazil, Ivory Coast, South Africa, India, Taiwan and Australia are also pineapple producers. Some of these countries still uses manual tool.

 

Malaysia

listed in top 20 countries for the pineapple plantation areas; produces 335,725 MT pineapple
