The increasing population and industry in the world have increased the energy demand. Fossil fuel still dominates the current energy consumption in Indonesia, although renewable energy sources are widely available in the country. One of the sources that can be used as a renewable energy source is solid waste as biomass from palm oil processing. The biomass can be converted to solid fuel by using the pyrolysis technique prior molded into a briquette. This study aims to analyze the biomass briquette molding machine in the simulation environment. The solid work simulation is used to analyze the machine regarding the material strength, static test, displacement, strain, and safety factor. The strength test of von mises stresses achieves a maximum value of 3.713 x 105 psi with node 43,485. It is known that the frame is still safe to use because the Yield Strange value is below the Von miss Stress value. Meanwhile, with a maximum displacement of 0.748 cm at node 62,816, a maximum strain of 0.00104 at element 43,485, and a safety factor of 3.278 x 108, it shows this briquette’s design molding machine is safe to use.
