In the development of the beverage industry that is increasing, the handling and management of cans still uses a manual process by stepping on or hitting the cans with a hammer so that the volume of the cans decreases. Therefore, need an idea and innovation to design and make can pressing machine in the form of a small scale is needed. The process of making this macine uses the Ulrich method. Start from identifying machine requirements to selecting the concept and fabrication of the design. Based on the results of the design using the Ulrich method, design concept 1 was chosen. Then planning, calculate and analysis will be carried out to determine the core components and supporting components to build the machine. The next stage is the manufacture of detailed drawings of the machine, followed by the fabrication and testing process. In the testing this can pressing machine is able to press canswith a capacity of 39 cans/minute with a total budget of Rp. 3.770.600,-.
