This paper presents an analysis of the mechanism of gears and belt system of Small Sugarcane Juice Extractor machines. The existing design of sugarcane extractor consists of two rollers with the pulley system connected by V-belts. The power generated by the motor will be transmitted from the wheel to the gears and finally the rotating shaft. The rollers will tear then press the sugarcane to extract the juices. The need for the mechanism analysis is necessary to obtain information on existing design for future development of a new version of extractor machine. This is due to currently available sugarcane juice extractors requiring high energy to power bulk and heavy roller mills that are mechanically driven. The analysis is focused on gears, belt and roller as well as the weakness, advantages and disadvantages of the existing extractor.
