Author Guidelines

Submitting a manuscript, the author is obliged to conduct registration on the system. General provisions used in the submitted journal are the suitability of the topic of the journal in the scope of mechanical engineering (energy conversion, metallurgy, design engineering, and manufacture).

Manuscript Format

The Script should be arranged straightforward and clear. The length of this paper should be 6 to 12 pages and be written in English or Bahasa. The page does not need to have page numbering. The Script should be written using Microsoft Office Word (*.doc or *.docx) single-spaced in A4 size letter (210 mm x 297 mm) with top, bottom, and right margins 2.5 cm, left margins 3 cm. The text layout should be written using one column. The Script should be presented in several chapters, starting from the introduction (25%), methodology, analysis (65%), Conclusion (10%), and references. The introduction consists of background, problems, and previous research.

Manuscript Title

The paper's title is written in a brief with no more than 18 words and can represent the paper's whole. It is written in capital letters without including a case study location.


The name of the main authors and member lists should be written in full with the affiliation origin of each of the authors.


This section is written in English containing a summary of the paper including the result of the research. The abstract contains a research description without reference. The abstract should consist of a single paragraph containing no more than 150 words using Times New Roman 10 pt, justified, and italic.


Keywords have to contain around 3 – 5 words. Keywords should refer to the research object, the root of the problem, and method.

Parts of Manuscript

Contain several sections including framework, research methodology, collecting data, processing data, and results.


The section is written corresponding to the section number.  The maximum level of the section is 3 levels, such as 2.1.1. Section and section number should be written using Arial 9 pt bold, justified, title case mode. To separate one section to another, add 1 spaceline.


The paragraph should be started with 15 pt spacing for the first line and should be given space line 3 pt after each paragraph.


Tables dan Figures

Tables and figures are presented in the centre of the script. Tables and figures should fit the columns. If it does not fit the columns, tables and figures should be placed on the top or bottom of the page. Tables are numbered in the order in which they are referenced. They should appear in the document in numerical order and as close as possible to their first reference in the text. It is preferable to have the table title appear at the left alignment of the table. Use Times New Roman 10 pt.  The number and titles of figures should be located below, between the number and title of the table and figures should be given 1 space bar. If the title is too long, then the length should fit the table or figures.



Equation/preposition is to be written using Microsoft Equation. Every equation / Preposition must be numbered and located on the right side as shown in equation 1.


Algorithm and Program

The algorithm or coding should be written in the textbox and presented like a picture. The algorithm and coding should be written using Courier New 9 pt with top, left, bottom, and right margins of 0.1 cm.



This section contains the conclusion of the paper that answers the problem of the research. It contains the result value of data processing that led to the analysis.


The contents of this script should be corresponding to references mentioned at the end of this paper. The references should mention the name of the writer and year of publication followed by the number of references.  Example: ...[1].  References to the table should be placed under the table on the left side. References for figures should be placed under the figure title on the left side. References should be written without section numbers.  References should be written in the IEEE style without section numbers. Every reference should be written in the reference section due to the order of each reference in this paper. The minimum number of references is 15. These are the example of references:
