The design is the initial activity of a series of product manufacturing processes. The design is considered one of the most important parts to produce a complete and comprehensive manufacturing product. The ability to design and then realize in real products is an advantage, both for designers and manufacturing industries that produce the design of Automatic measuring machine of mass and dimension is a machine that can take information in the form of mass and dimensions of an object in the usual form. This machine is the development of a device called Machine Vision. Machine vision is a machine consisting of hardware and software. This is set to be able to retrieve information from digital images or images automatically, which is used for quality control. Machine vision is very dependent on sensors and cameras. Laser light is used as a sensor which has the task of mapping measurement objects while the camera serves to capture light waves produced by lasers on measuring objects so that the camera takes pictures to take dimensional data from the measuring object in a one-meter unit. The development of machine vision in question is the addition of a mass meter to this system. Mass measuring instrument using a digital weigher in the form of a load cell. A load cell is a sensor designed to detect the pressure or weight of a load, measurements made by load cells use the principle of pressure. The working principle of an automatic measuring machine of mass and dimensions is a measurement object that is placed at the base of the object where the load cell is placed to obtain mass data, along with the laser source and the camera move together for dimensional data retrieval. After getting all the desired data, the measured measurement object is moved to a storage area with a previously designed driving system.
