Malaysia is the world’s largest producer and exporter of oil palm.Malaysia is now the world’s leading exporter of palm oil with 60% market share.In order to increase the production of oil palm industry,harvesting is one of the important processes that need to be considered.Regarding to the harvesting process,new technology is adopted and mechanical machinery is introduced purposely to increase the worker productivity.This technology and mechanical machinery will replace the conventional method among the workers in harvesting process especially for collecting oil palm loose fruits.This is because the conventional method either hand picking and raking are inefficient, time consuming,lead to back pain problem and unsafe.The objective of this project is to design a device for picking the oil palm loose fruits efficiently and ergonomics.Thus,this product can solve the problems occur while using conventional method.In order to achieve the objective of this project,a few process were carried out by following sequences starting from the problem definition,conceptual design,design selection,detail design,fabrication,test and evaluation.From the CAD design,two parts has been chosen as critical part in which it has been analysed their maximum Von Mises stress and maximum displacement of deformation by using generative structural analysis to know the strength of the parts.Method testing had been carried out among the three methods of collecting oil palm loose fruits.The results had been interpreted and analysed by comparing the maximum productivity achieved and minimum debris collected among three methods used.In conclusion,the oil palm loose fruits collector device was developed as a functional prototype.
