Abstract

The design and construction of manually operated soap cutting and scraping machine for small scale industries is an attempt to solve the problems encountered by the previous machine such as power failure, inefficient and skilled personnel for their operation and no room for producing different sizes of soaps on a machine etc. This machine was constructed using affordable materials and is manually operated, and also it permits the production of different sizes of soap by merely adjusting the cutters, lastly it requires no or little special skill for its operation. Results obtained show that the machine has efficiency of 85%. From the performance test, the soap cutting and scraping machine was able to cut ten (8) bars of soap in one revolution of the handle in three (3) seconds, therefore, for the machine to cut and scrape twenty five (25) bars of soap and above It will depends on the mould size and the number of cutter blades used, which will also take the same number of revolution of the handle.
