In this study, it involves the protein determination of latex gloves for latex glove manufacturing industry. Natural rubber latex (NRL) gloves provide tactile properties, barrier protection, tear resistance, economy and comfort touch surface area which preferred by the medical field. However, there are more than 200 proteins in the NRL and 13 of them which are known to be allergens to human. In the manufacturing process of latex gloves, the Bradford reagent protein test method is used as a standard method for assessing protein levels for quality control. The current standard methods typically involve many procedures that manually operate which results in high processing time. Thus, new innovative design is needed and involved the cutting system that allows samples stamping and retrieved with less time consumption. The cutting machine can perform the automatic cutting of latex glove into several samples According to the current method, samples cutting process conducted by humans. Therefore, the new system is automated, which may only require an operator to place the glove at the input of the system and remove it at the end of the process. The new latex glove samples cutting system consists of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) moving mechanism with a 28 mm rotating rotary cutter as cutting die. Thus, the cutting system is able to shorten the processing time on protein determination
