Abstract

Tofu demand in Indonesia is largely supplied by Small and Medium Enterprises(SMEs). Tofu SMEs have not applied waste treatment management for their manufacturing process. High investment for waste treatment technology and limited production area in the factory, are causing low awareness in term of waste treatment management. Tofu waste is consists of solid and liquid form. Whey is tofu solid waste. Whey used as main ingredient for fish pellet, as it has high nutrition content. Whey must undergo milling, dough making, drying, and pelletize, in order to be used as fish pellet. Advance technology to transform whey in to fish pellet has been widely used in the market, yet the price is out of SMEs investment level. Simple pelletize machine also widely used with affordable pricing but the function only to pelletize. Hence to that, an opportunity opens to design fish pellet machine for tofu SMEs. Product design and development by Ulrich & Eppinger applied to produce comprehensive design. The research outcome is a design of fish pellet machine. The machine specifications are: 10 kg/hour capacity, dimension 980 x 690 x 955 mm, milling force 222.59 N, cutting force 0,069 N, 1 cm pellet size with 6 mm diameter, and estimated manufacturing and assembly cost less than Rp.3.000.000,-.
