Student Achievements

At present the husk of tender coconut are being removed manually, which employs more time and man power. This project is to fabricate the coconut peeling machine that peels off the coconut husk from the coconut fruit to obtain DEHUSKED coconut fruit .An operator is required to handle the machine during peeling process. This machine includes the rotation axis control system drive, peeling blades etc. The peeling machine is designed in such a way that it works automatically .The automation strategy in dehusking results in reduced cycle time cost. This machine is extremely beneficial for coconut traders and exporting industries.

Fabrication Of Self Charging E-Bike

E-bike becomes more attractive and recent trends in automotives. It takes for a common E-bike to charge fully about 6-8 hrs .The range for such bikes is usually about 30-40 kms. Then it needs to be recharged again.

In this E-bike our students have made the charging system inbuilt for continuous running. The power from battery will be discharged and charged continuously. This project ensures the road safety by avoiding high speed.

This project can be commercialized by fabricating in a cost effective manner.
