Abstract

The urban lifestyle trend pushes the emergence of business on beverage businesses, especially cafes. Every cafe or beverage business must find its uniqueness compared to competitors. Except for the product's taste, innovation in attractive packaging is one of the business strategies. In this study, an automatic printing machine has been developed. The automatic process starts with the cup entering the machine until the printed cup is removed. The test has been performed to check the machine's performance in printing one batch of cups. Two designs have been tested, and every design was repeated three times. The result shows that the success rate, which is the number of cups that are completely printed, is about 91.7%. The average time for printing one batch (10 cups) is 55.8 seconds. The machine could operate automatically; hence, the operator's role in inserting the cup into the machine and pulling out the printed cup from the machine could be removed.
