Abstract of Construction of Soap Cutting Device

The aim of the project is to construct a soap cutting device capable of size-remaining the soap produced into regular bars and tablets without error in shapes and sizes.


Soap cutting devices are used to size reduce or cut the bulk of soap produced into bars and tablets.  Soap cutting devices facilitate the process of cutting the produced soap to a required size that can be handled.  It is a kind of modern technical way of size reducing the already produced soap in a modern and easy way.

Hardwood (Mohagany) and wire was selected for the construction of the project.  Methodology of the construction involved marketing out operation which involved the dimensioning of the table and cutter (wire) – 760mm, width of the table -570mm, lenfth used as an 250mm etc.

Other operations carried out in the construction process includes, cutting, surface smoothening, grooving, nailing, and wine installation.

Finally a manual soap cutter with table was constructed with the following turbance, resistance to impact load / disturbance and branding  force, reliability and accuracy.


Chapter One of Construction of Soap Cutting Device



The project entitled construction of soap cutting device is aimed at producing equipment for the size-reduction of manufactured soap into shape, size, design and patterns.

Soap cutting device is the equipment used for cutting or size-reducing of soaps. It is the tool used for cutting, size reducing and slicing bulks of much trial and error, soap catter of various size and shape used in larger production of soaps are being designed, and example is the current professional custom cutter.  The cutter has satisfied the needs of many soap makers around the world.

Other soap cutter types includes; electrical embossing and cutting machine, pneumatic chain cutting machine, cutter with wooden tuble cutting mould guided soap cutter, straight blade  cutter,  wavy   blade   cutter. (Willow,  1996).  All  these cutters serve   the purpose  of   soap  cutting  and   packaging   in various soap  electrical  industries . for  instance   the  electrical  embossing and   cutting   machine   can  be  used  to  emboss  and  cut all  kinds   of  toilet  and  laundry  soap  fast  and     accurate. In  the case  of  toilet soap  production , this  machine   will  cut  the soap  billets  from  the plodder   into  long  bars  to  faced into  laundry  soap production,  a complete  set  of  embossing  mechanism  can  be  install  at  the  front   so that  the  machine  can  emboss  and  cut  the  soaps  at  the same  time  to  produce  finished  product  for  down  stream  packaging.

The   pneumatic  chain  cutting   machine  type  cuts   the  bar  soap   from  vacuum  plodders  into   specialized   length of  bar. The  cutting  machines   is  fitted   with  XL      200,  XL    280  and  XLD  480  cold  stamper  to  cut  double  soap   bars. The   cutting  moulds  types   is  designed  in   such  a way  that their bottom are  grooved  for  cutting  completely  through  the  soap.  A  cutting   moulds set  can  be   used  to   soap   from  many  plain moulds cutting with a wooden table is also a type of soap cutting designed to cutual soap cutting cherries. It is a manual soap cutter designed to cut large blocks of soap within minutes manually. It comes with extra cutting frame, wire and tables for different full size bars and hotel size bars. It is compact in size, curable and easy to clean and operate.

For  all  the  mensiument  types  of  soap   cutting  device, this   work  is  an  effect  to  develop   a  simple  soap   cutter   that  can  serve   domestic   soap  cutting  purpose.


The  setting   soap  into  bulky  mass  nature  after  production  has  made  the  application  and uses  of  soap   to be  difficult  and this   calls   for  the  need  to  size  reduce   or  cult  the soap  for  easy  handling  and  applications


The   purpose  of the  study   is  to  give  expert   knowledge  and  guide   on the  manufacturing  of  soap   cutting  derive that is   used  in size  reduced  in  small  scales industries.

The   project   or  research  work  is  a mined  at   constructing   a  simple   manned  soap   cutter  with a  wooden  table   that  will   be used  for  domestic  soap  cutting  purpose   and  have  the  following    properties;  compact   in  size,  Durable   and  easy  to  clean  and  operate,   cutting  frames   and   tables  will  be  early   and  quickly   to  interchanged.  Above   all,  be  used  to  create  a soap of  desired   shape,  size  and  easy  to  handle.


The research method applied is construction and descriptive method the designing assembling and manufacturing of materials.

Descriptive method:- this involves the logical assessment of work carried out. The source of information includes the library internet and already researched word.


The establishment of soap cutting device manufacturing industries in our country will be of many benefit to a grate extent.

(1)        the establishment of such industries will go a long way in providing job opportunities for engineer and the increasing numbers of unemployed citizen thereby reducing the crimerate associated with unemployment

(2)        The high foreign exchange cost spent in the importation of soap cutting devices could be saved for other.

(3)        It will serve as a source of income for the mation, thereby turning her from importation of soap cutting device to exportation of cutting device exporters.

(4)        The construction of soap cutting device will create a comfortable shape, size design and patterns as regard to the desire of the society.
