Description :

Bamboo sticks are the major raw materials used in the Agarbatti industry. For making incense stick, electricity operated high capacity machines are available, which are suitable for industries but not for rural poor who make strips and sticks using knife. Looking at the need, Innovator has developed a set of two machines i.e. Bamboo strip and Incense stick making machine, which are used to make incense sticks from bamboo pieces. The first machine is used to slice the bamboo pieces of definite size and length. The slices cut are then fed in the strip making machine to produce the sticks.

These machines are manually operated, easy to use and maintain and most suitable for the tribal people.

The operator can easily accommodate the set of machine in his/ her house as these are compact machines and do not occupy much space.

The two machines together are capable of giving production of 30 kg of sticks per 8 hr per day. 

On an average one person can earn minimum 100 to 150 Rs. by using any one or both of these machines. The machine is capable of providing gainful/ supplementary employment.

The blade is made from HIgh Carbon Steel material and it needs to be replaced after processing 10,000 kg incense stick

The machine is capable of providing gainful/ supplementary employment. A rural woman can use this machine comfortably, apart from her regular domestic chores.

It substantially reduced drudgery and risk of injuries to the rural people living in areas contiguous to bamboo forests.
