The growth of palm oil industry in our country generally shows the positive signs on the basis of higher demand for palm oil. Following this scenario that instigate, development of technology should result in a product line for the high quality in terms of processing quality for guarantees product demand continuously. In achieving this objective this report will design a machine that will produce clean loose fruit. The concept that use for this machine is gravity separation method. Gravity separation method is an industrial method of separating two components from a suspension or any other homogeneous mixture where separating the component with gravity is sufficiently practical. All of the gravitational methods are common in the sense that they all use gravity as the dominant force. The outside energy that cause the machine vibrates is a combination of ballast weight and motor. The motor acts as a stimulus ballast and ballast weight will form a resource that imbalance on the machine and cause it to vibrate. This machine is in the know as sieving machine that will sieve the size of raw material that content such as loose fruit, soil, stones, sand and the waste. Finally, this machine will only produce loose fruit as the product that will be in the process. Main things that need to be taken in the matter are to identify the characteristics of raw materials. After that, we will be able to specify types of screen that is used as raw material grading. Solidwork 2005 software is used to design for the entire machine. In this project, actual size grading machine will be produced. The experiment will showed that the suitable vibrating frequency will produce the higher efficiency. On the other hand, from the higher efficiency during running will lead to the selection of suitable or optimum mass flow rate per unit area of the raw material that load into this machine.
