The processing of pinneaple becoming fruitcake has been done for several years using manual process in a Small to Medium Enterprise in rural region. This rural region producing a huge number with less production value of pineapple as there is no modern industry. The purpose of this research is designing a simple automation to enhance the productivity with the combination of karakuri to achieve an efficient process. Efficient process means that to proposed system using a small quantity of energy. The system has been compared with the previous manual system and it is proven to have more productivity, easy to operate and using less energy (electricity in particular). In terms of quality, there is no more defect product such as overcooked so that the designed system is robust. The proposed system is also relatively inexpensive as it is used simple automation.
