The purpose of this study is to improve the production process of brick craftsmen. Brick production process
consists of four stages: printing, drying, burning, and cooling. Of the four stages, which will be completed in this
research is the process of printing bricks. The printing process still uses simple equipment that is a rectangular wooden
beam with a size of 20 cm x 10 cm x 5 cm. The printing process includes: preparation of raw materials by hoeing the
soil, making the dough by trampling to the shape of a paste, printing using a printing tool. For this method, for 4 people
craftsmen can print bricks as much as 2,000 pieces / day (8 hours work / day). The number of bricks is ideal for once
combustion of 40,000 pieces. For reach that amount it takes 20 days. The method applied in improving the production
process of brick craftsmen is the application of brick machine. The operation of the brick printing machine requires 4
persons with their respective functions: 1 person to insert the soil into the printing machine, 1 person to cut the brick bar,
1 person to move the bricks from the printing machine, 1 person to bring the bricks to the drying place. Based on the
result of the test, it is concluded that by using the brick machine, the dough making is easier and shorter, the production
capacity increased to 6,780 bricks / day, the time required for the production of 40,000 pieces of bricks is 6 days.
