After all that peeling it ends up putting the vegetable on the same conveyor as the peel

Automation engineers have to get new jobs SOMEHOW

This machine creates job opportunities


fun-gineering

Just a guess but I’m assuming the conveyor ends in a bath where the peels are easily separated and sent off to make dog food or something

My grandma does it faster

Hired


Cutoffjeanshortz37

They wasted the downstroke to peel quicker. Totally unacceptable.


ValueBlitz

Yeah, even if you're peeling two at a time, there are, what, 800 potatoes in that room, so that's 400 times whatever the mean peel time is.

Leverage wouldn’t work and it would bind.


TheFifthCan

Have the same mechanism just upside down, it'd work just fine.


batdog20001

Extra costs for material and maintenance, plus just having the same peeler mechanism does not mean you have the same leverage. If you have a stick in the ground both sides can be pointy but only one is applying resistance.


TheFifthCan

Assuming you have no other bottlenecks in your line, any smart manufacturing engineer would take doubling your throughput and lowering pc price over whatever marginal increase in and maintenance and cost this would be. And I dunno about you, but my peeler at home works whether I use it right-side-up or upside-down so...


Cutoffjeanshortz37

If only someone could come up with a way for it to not bind, like, idk, an engineer. Then that creative and smart solution could be posted somewhere for people to look at and marvel in their engineering.


SecretEgret

Flip the machine every time so it's always pulling! No wait just flip the connected parts! Or maybe we put an angle inverter on the peeler, and double the number of springs, which can be activated or deactivated based on cycle and pull bars doing the same! Or we make a second one and position it upside down! ​ Or for a third the price we just go up! Make 3! ​ There you go that's why there are a bunch in a row here.


DuelingPushkin

Now what if that awesome solution makes the machine cost more than twice the price. The answer to "why do we do this?" Isn't usually "because we cant" it's usually because the benefit doesn't justify the cost.


[deleted]

but… we already did this… we have $1 peelers that can peel in any direction. The blade is just kept with a very modest degree of rotational freedom. That’s the whole solution.


DuelingPushkin

That was already addressed earlier in the thread. >Leverage wouldn’t work and it would bind.


[deleted]

Pretty sure that is relating to a fixed blade as shown? A $1 peeler wouldn’t work very well either if the blade was held into place. Because it can pivot, it achieves leverage and does not bind.


batdog20001

That isn't really how leverage works. It can give the possibility of needed/extra leverage but a possibility is not a constant. Stick in ground, both sides pointy, only one has resistance (its stuck in the ground). There are more issues than the direction of movement: direction/origin of the FORCE on the mechanism such as "above, below, etc " can change how leverage is achieved. Very similar as to why going out further on a lever increases leverage by reducing force needed. If you've ever shaved before, you'd realize the issue with your idea.


Ragidandy

Most peeler blades swivel about 60 degrees for exactly that purpose. They don't bind.


Thomas_Mickel

It’s being supported on the top and bottom. Why won’t it work?


PretendsHesPissed

I want my money back!


qarlthemade

you would have to turn the blade by 180° for that I guess.


KIDNEYST0NEZ

It would be faster if you had it move in a circular motion sort of like a pencil sharpener. Light springs could have it rapidly adjust for the terrain change.

More parts to break/require replacement


Cutoffjeanshortz37

Normal potatoes are done with stiff rotating brushes and at way faster rates. This is already way too complicated.

altSHIFTT

It really is funny here sometimes, isn't it


MozeeToby

This seems horrendously complicated (and prone to breaking) to achieve it's goal. Why not spin the potatoes and use a simple spring loaded mechanism the way apple and potato pealers have since the early 1800s?


Babsobar

Because of inward grooves


FullMarksCuisine

Because look at the shape lol


2catchApredditor

You need to rotate the potato and then have a follower wheel to follow the contours and a peeler tip that is set slightly deeper than the follower wheel. Easy and not a lot of waste.


MightySamMcClain

Usually spins around and rubs an abrasive, basically sanding the skin off then washed. This looks like it would take ages. Either way: don't put your dick in that


KC_experience

That’s so satisfying….


Preview_Username

Thank God it got that last bit I was looking at the whole time.


TeaBreezy

Potatoes have been peeled by tumbling in abrasive drums for ever, idk why the sweet potato is any different. Maybe less volume, or maybe the peel is different and more fiberous on a sweet potato


SpicyMintCake

Someone else in the thread linked to the same machine being used for mangoes, I guess it's pretty flexible and a lot gentler with more fragile things that need peeling.

FreshWaterWolf

This is cool and all, but my mother-in-law does it like 2-3x faster


csborger

The only part that gets me is that, at a certain point one of the peelers is peeling off the flesh while the other is getting the remaining skin. It seems a little wasteful. Most likely the company allows for a percentage of waste.


-Greenlung

Used to peel so many of these by hand I'm actually quicker than this machine is. Or is this slowed down?


notSherrif_realLife

You can’t do multiple at the same time, this machine can.


snakesign

He also can't do this 24/7 without breaks, this machine can. Maintenance downtime notwithstanding.


-Greenlung

Depends on the paycheck

Ahh ! Mangoes are slimy buggers. I can't peel those half as fast.

Tip to tip.

That's true for sure!

Please, if you have it in your heart, crosspost to my sub /r/vegetablepeelers It's in dire need of new content, I think my community is dying.


Dropped-pie

Why not peel downwards also? Or is that not included in the free trial?


derkenblosh

Is this what happens when your engineers are *hourly* ?... Why is this not spinning on it's side with a simple fixed blade and calibrated weight/spring?


LYL_Homer

Most vegetables don't need to be peeled.

Cool design. Would a hexagonal arrangement be too hard to implement? Would only have to rotate once or twice before completing it

That is pretty neat, but now I want to see how they make sure the spike goes into the end of the sweet potato.

I like how after the careful precision peeling process, it just straight up dumps it back on the conveyer like a mic drop "Done with this"
