Abstract: Home is a place for shelter and survival for every living thing. These residential buildings are made using materials, one of which is brick. The technology of making bricks continues to grow over time. At present, bricks have been made using machines that use modern methods with the Interlocking Brick System (IBS) model. This molding machine using pneumatic to press the clay in the mold to becomes an IBS. This study aimed to determine the structural strength of the IBS printing press when given a load when printing is carried out. This research also serves to determine the most vulnerable locations on the machine structure as a concern when the load capacity will be increased. The analysis was carried out using the finite element method by using the finite element software. The simulation results obtained are, this IBS brick molding machine is safely operated for static pressure loads of 100 bar (10MPa).
