The coconut derivative industry continues to grow by diversifying the coconut processing industry. This is evident from the variety of post-harvest coconut processing both from food and non-food products. Especially for edible by-products based on coconut meat, they seemed to be prospective and have a high selling value, among others is the virgin coconut oil (VCO). VCO is a product of pure coconut oil that is beneficial for health, especially in increasing the body's immunity against various degenerative diseases, and can be used as raw materials for natural cosmetics with high economic value. The present study aims to produce a technology package for the processing of coconut fruit into VCO. As the initial stage of the VCO production is the process of breaking the coconut shell—which is the hardest part of a coconut fruit. Therefore, the shell breaker machine is developed in which it has several components, including: sprocket safety cover, capacitor, belt cover, electric motor as drive, switch on/off, coconut shell breaker sprocket, coconut shell breaker and breaker, gear box and screw adjuster. The capacity of the tool to break the coconut shell is 1 coconut per minute. The driver uses a 1:50 gear box and an AC motor ¾ hp. This coconut shell breaker is designed by considering ergonomic and safety aspects for users. The output obtained from this study is a coconut shell breakdown tool where coconut shell can be peeled off so that the coconut meat is still intact and the coconut water is not wasted because it can be used for the washing process in subsequent phase of this study.
