Construction of onion skin peeling machine is designed to meet the standards required by the customer or user. This machine is designed according to standards of Boothroyd Dewhurst in design and innovation for a machine. In general machine construction methodology is based on the concept of friction on the surface of the onion and topped with the use of water to helps soften the surface of the onions before peeling process can be done. Meanwhile, the methods and the use of machines is based on the rotation of a soft brush attached to the shaft and fully controlled by a single phase AC motor. This process is expected to make onion skin come out. This machine is build to meet the demand from small-and medium industry in design, function, and price. This machine is also expected to be used for wedding fest preparation in the villages. Efficiency of this machine had been measured and the data are being analyzed using Design Expert software for the ANOVA procedure.
