TITLE: ONION SORTER AND PEELER

OBJECTIVES:

1. The purpose of this project is to create a machine that will sort out the onions and peel it
automatically
2. It is aimed to help the onions farmers in the fast and convenient way of sorting and peeling the

3. To reduce too much human intervention is one of the main goals of this project

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

There are many varieties of onions. They differ in shape, color, organoleptic properties. As we have
watched from the JGFs video regarding the onion farming, people in the central Luzon are the primarily
supplier of Jollibee Food Corporations in terms of onions. The process requires manually sorting and
peeling the onions using their bare hands.

In order to help the onions farmers with this matter, the students from Mechatronics System Design
proposed a solution that will help the farmers sort and peel the onions in the most convenient way. It is
called the Onion Sorter and Peeler Machine that automatically sorts out the onions in accordance to
their sizes and then it will be put peeled out afterwards.

The major components of the machine are:

Belt Conveyor
Roller
Onion Catcher Bin
Peel catcher Bin
PLC
