The report is short brief about the proposed preliminary research and fundamental concepts of the chosen topic; The Design and Fabrication of a prototype machine: 'asam gelugor" processing machine. The objectives of this study is to design, to do the force and velocity analysis, to determine the best material, to fabricate the machine and to test the workability of it. Engineering software such as AutoCAD is going to be used in drafting of drawing while for fabrication the application of CNC lathe, CNC milling, Welding Set, Drilling machine, and tapping will take place. The challenge in this project is to design a machine which able to slices the "asam gelugor" automatically with ample strength of cutting knifes. Potatoes slicer machine will be the reference in designing this machine with some modification done for a better performance of the machine. Several designs are made and then only one is chosen to be the final design to proceed with fabrication process. Comparison and weight analysis is done to select the best design to proceed with. Material selection for the blades and casing/frame of the machine done with some criteria to be fulfilled such as the quality of the fruit must be preserved, cost effectiveness, anti-corrosion and many others. Force and velocity analysis is done to ensure that the machine going to work later on. Material selected as the machine's casing and body parts is Perspex as the see-through property allows one to see the inside mechanism of the slicer machine. Machine had been fabricated and assembled as close to the specification determined. With ample amount of forces exerted by the motor, the machine is able to slice "asam gelugor". Machine also tested to slice other types of fruit to show the flexibility of the machine. From test run, it is known that the machine can increase the productivity double the traditional method. And from the cost analysis it is known that this machine is capable of giving higher profit compared by using traditional method.
