Abstract

    The study is to develop a ginger harvester, with mechanization and automation harvesting processes, it saves farmer’s labor and improve efficiency of harvesting. It increases the competition and economic income for the farmers of ginger industry. It’s labor-saving attract younger to agriculture. Developmental mechanism segment three sections in initial processes, power chassis, ground-breaking mechanism and clamping mechanism. We use CAD software to building models and simulation software to simulate motion, it can time-saving and money-saving. The ginger harvester increase the efficiency of harvesting, furthermore attract younger to agriculture. It solves the problem of rural labor shortage and aging, it increase competitiveness of ginger industry of Taiwan.

Keywords: Ginger, Harvester, CAD.
