Abstract: In this article, we are going to show the design, process, and manufactures of a molding machine prototype that allows the production of biodegradable plates (made of oat grass, corn glass, waste of nopal and other natural products). Our objective is to make a mold prototype of simple fabrication, of accessible cost in order to produce quality biodegradable plates. We describe the process that started with de design. The base of molding machine was built with metal and guides made of steel. Regarding the mold, sweet iron is proposed, since the used mixture doesnt require a strong force compression. In the same way, it is pretended to replace a pneumatic actuator for endless screw, coupled to reducer-motor, to get the ideal torque the molding of the mixture and this getting as a result an efficient and effective design to produce biodegradable plates. The proposal of manufacturing low-cost molding machine is because it can be an easy acquisition for micro-entrepreneurs.
