The experiments were conducted by a semi-automatic dried-longan peeling machine. Four different peeling cams of peeling devices were compared. The radius of curvature of the cam was changed from 40 mm to 50 mm, 55 mm, and 60 mm. The results showed that the speed of peeling devices will decrease as the radius of the outer edge of the cam becomes larger, thereby increasing the peeling success rate.
