This study aims to improve the quality and quantity of chicken feed pellets through the development of pellet machines using a taper wheel model. The development of pellet machines using tapered wheel roller model begins by designing machine components, assembling, assembling, testing, and analyzing test result data. The pellet system consists of 4 rollers of tapered wheels that feed the feed ingredients into a molding hole. The working principle of pellet four-wheel drive system is the main axle driven by electric motors with 1 HP power. This shaft rotates a mold plate having holes 4-6 mm in size. The feed mixture is fed into the input funnel. Furthermore, feed mixture is put into the mold hole after being pressed by four wheels roller. The feed mixture will be fused and solidified after passing through a tapered and cylindrical molding hole. The design of the machine pellet four tapered roller wheel system found that the average particle density and bulk density of pellet chicken feed were about 363 kg/m3 and 726 kg/m3. The average capacity of the machine was 24.0 kg/hr. The percentage of durability of pellet and broken pellet were about 86.22 % – 89.48 % average 87.77 % and 10.52% – 13.78 % average 8.27 % respectively.
