Abstract: Currently in Colombia in the northern region of Santander, exist a large number of farmers who grow different agricultural products and require more appropriate irrigation systems hoses, but due to the high demand, local manufacturers do not meet the requirements and in many cases the hoses are brought from other parts of the country bringing higher costs. In the present work, the design of a prototype plastic extrusion machine for hose producers in the province of Ocaña was carried out. The development of the research was carried out through the execution of mathematical calculations with the support of specialized bibliographic material and a Finite Element Analysis with help of SolidWorks Simulation Software, where the geometric model of the machine in order to identify the elements subjected to maximum of efforts. The results obtained show that the prototype will be in charge of producing ½, ¾ and 1 inch. In conclusion the prototype works in adequate conditions always ensuring high levels of safety and operation; Moreover, the machine will be low cost to promote growth and competitive capacity of hose producers, as a solution to the problems based on competitiveness, working conditions and resources economic.
