Problem Statement:- To shred kitchen waste material for the domestic composter. Because of shredding, it reduces the decomposition unit.
Objective:- To make a shredder for the domestic composting unit.
Features:- Manually operated
– Easy Operating
– Low cost
The design is a simple 2 shaft mechanism made in acrylic and parts are cut on a laser cutter.
This prototype is made from 6mm acrylic sheet. Cutting was done on laser cutter available in Vigyan Ashram. On a square metal tube shaft blade and the spacer is mounted and side holder. The gear is provided for a simple mechanism to shred the materials.
Youtube trial video of shredding sere leaves in this design:-
I have learned these skill from this project:-
- Design study.
- Mechanical Machine design
- Laser Cutting
By cost analysis I have to choose better and cost effective material for shredding blade.
So I need a temporary solution for this shredder. Because this project gonna take so much time and experimental trials. So I have find out solution for this shredding kitchen waste.
