Design and Fabrication of Garlic Peeling Machine with Juice Extractor

Garlic is used both as a food flavoring and a traditional medicine. The crop is widely cultivated in Ilocos region, Southern Tagalog, and Central Luzon, and because of its many uses, the demand for garlic peeling and juice extractor machine tends to be high. Peeling of garlic is tiring and time consuming especially when garlic is needed for large- scale cooking. In juicing garlic, a separate machine is used to do the extraction. This study, therefore, attempted to design and fabricate a machine that would peel large quantity of garlic cloves with high efficiency compared to manual method and would extract juice using a screw-type extractor. Restaurants, hotels and public markets are the targeted areas where the fabricated machine can be used. With the proponent’s originally designed method of peeling, using the combined principle of rotating motion and screw-type extractor, the machine would be easy to fabricate, easy to use, efficient, cost-effective, and compact. It would also use less electricity. By adding a blower, it will easily sort the peeled garlic from its skin. To maximize its capacity, the machine is divided into sections by the two cover plates (i.e. peeling cylinder, sorting box) for continuous peeling and extraction. Incorporating a garlic peeling machine along with the juice extractor is a cost-effective investment.
