In traditional practice of making soanpapdi, sugar pulling and twisting is done manually which is labour intensive, time consuming process. Handling sugar ball at high temperature, sugar pulling and twisting process is very difficult.To mechanize this process prototype soanpapdi making machine is developed and performance was evaluated in terms of time, capacity, threading efficiency and wastage. Less time taken, high capacity, minimum wastage and increased threading efficiency was observed in firm ball consistency and at 14 rpm speed of rotating table as compared to soft and hard ball sugar consistency. Maximum threading efficiency was achieved as 80% for the industrial formulation.
