Plastic are certainly most versatile of all known materials today and have therefore, established themselves in enviable position from where are not even possible to replaced. Injection molding machine is one of the most widely used method of conversion of plastic into various end products application to wide range of plastic materials from plastic commodity to specialty engineering plastic.In injection molding machine stationary platen play a very important role. During the process generally compressive stress generates at particular regions. As load varies with fast rate there is chance to failure of tie bar rod. Due to heavy mould shape, size of platen also change, that’s increase its weight as well as stress level at certain region and this is not good in practice . This leads to failure of platen or failure of tie rod due to stretching by nut and platen.
