Abstract

The research aims to make the design of a young coconut leather peeler machine to support the marketing of fresh young coconuts domestically and exports. This research is an appropriate technology to help people in young coconut marketing activities sold in the form of fresh or export. This prototype was made simple to be portable and reasonably priced, but the capacity was great and the quality of the results was better. The design approach for designing the machine is using methods compiled by Gerhardt Pahl and Wolfgang Beitz, so that the design approach is based on a functional design approach and structural design approaches. The design stages of this machine include designing and manufacturing of tools, laboratory tests, and field tests. The result of this research is the product of young coconut leather peeling machine to support the marketing of fresh young coconut in the country and export, which is ergonomic, affordable, and ready to be applied, has a working capacity of 80 pieces/hour, the results are more neat and symmetrical compared to manual way.
