Kepok bananas are one of the bananas that are often processed into fan fried bananas or commonly called fan bananas. Fan bananas are processed by first being sliced ​​into several parts and shaped like a fan. At the present time, fried banana traders slice bananas manually. This, of course, takes a long time and is also a possibility for accidents to occur. To facilitate human work in slicing bananas, a fan banana cutting machine was designed. The way this tool works is by placing the banana on the holder and then turning on the motor so that the blade moves to cut the banana. The size of the knife used there are 3 different types of knife width, namely, 3mm, 5mm, 7mm, and has a knife thickness of 1mm. This machine has five seating spaces for placing bananas, so that in one operation, you can slice five bananas at once. This machine uses a DC motor with a rotation of 150rpm. From the test results of the five blades, the best cut results were obtained, namely the Stainless Steel blade measuring 7mm wide and 1.5mm thick with good cutting results.   Keywords: blade, DC motor.
