In Centrifugal Pipe Casting machine, hot molten metal is injected from one end and the other end remains closed by a covering plate having standard dimension. This covering plate is locked by a worker with the help of a spanner. This covering plate again needs to be opened after completion of casting process for the extraction of the pipe from the mould. This paper discuss mainly focused on the analysis of locking plate and its new design so that the human interference must be reduced to higher extent. Thus large amount of time can be saved which in turn will increase the productivity and reduce the cost of production.
