Pomegranate is a commonly used fruit in our day-to-day life. They are used for juice making in various fruit stalls and one of the value added ingredients in food and have great medical value. The main objective of the project is to automate the process of deseeding the fruit. The manual process of deseeding the fruit is a time consuming one for the extraction of seeds. The proposed system is automatic deseeded, which consists of the cantilever beam fixed, and electromagnet. Cantilever beam is used to provide the tapping force over the fruit and it gets attracted by energizing of the electromagnet and by de-energizing the electromagnet, thebeam gets repelled. This action results in the striking of the cantilever beam over the outer skin of the fruit, which is kept in the inverted position over the designed bowl. This process of energizing and de-energizing the electromagnet is repeated for a specific period of time with a time delay, gives the hammering action of cantilever beam over the fruit. Then, the seeds are collected in the tray. The proximity sensor senses the presence of the fruit and it is interfaced with the microcontroller 89C51 and the process continues as per the program. The maintenance of the system is less and it is a onetime investment.
