Title of the Innovation: MULBERRY LEAF CHOPPING MACHINE

Brief About Innovation

Variants:    

1. Chawki Leaf Chopper

The young age silkworms (first and second instar larvae) need to be fed with mulberry leaves cut in to small pieces (leaf size varies from 3 mm to 35 mm). Presently the mulberry leaves are chopped manually which is a time consuming process. Large scale rearing of silkworms and for chawki (young age silkworms) rearing centers large quantity of leaves have to be chopped for feeding the silkworms. The mulberry leaf chopping machine can chop leaves of any dimension continuously. The machine is simple in construction and can be fabricated/manufactured using locally available material like mild steel (angles, etc), bearings, V-belts, pulleys, steel blades, bolts and nuts, electric motor (1/2 HP), etc.

Plant & machinery: 

Fabrication/Mechanical workshop with facilities for turning, sheet metal cutting, welding, spray-painting, etc.
