ALBIERO, Daniel; MACIEL, Antonio José da Silva  and  GAMERO, Carlos Antonio. Design and development of babaçu (Orbignya phalerata Mart.) harvest for small farms in areas of forests transition of the Amazon. Acta Amaz. [online]. 2011, vol.41, n.1, pp.57-68. ISSN 0044-5967.

The babaçu (Orbignya phalerata) is a typical palm of transition forests of Amazon/Savana and Amazon/Caatinga econsystems; it is very important economically, socially and environmentally in this region. Products derived from babaçu provide income for the poor of these regions. One of the problems for obtaining this product efficiently is the extractivist system of harvesting. The objective of this work is to set up a self-propelling project of babaçu harvesting, for family farmers of the Amazonian transition forest region, which would not interfere in natural babaçu forests, and would contribute to harvesting efficiency. The project was carried out with engineering tools. We obtained the calculus memorial, definition of machine elements, which substantiates the technical of the project.

Keywords : Babaçu; Machine Project; Harvest Machine.
