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.
