Automatic pizza cutting machine

Resumen

The objective of this research is to determine the need of an automated pizza cutting machine in food industry and to design a machine that would cut a pizza into even slices by a single press. The need of the product has been determined by the surveys that were collected from various pizza vendors. From the survey it was concluded that market will welcome the product as it would overcome several issues like unequal slice cut and lower productivity.
This machine is designed to cut a pizza of any size in less than 30 seconds; increasing the overall productivity. The pneumatic system and round cutting tools are used to create basic structure in this project to get the pizza cuts into even slices with better precision and accurate shape. The stress and motion analysis conducted as part of design procedure and their results are also discussed.
