Power box is a component which is used in earth movers. It controls the power circuit. It has top cover, front cover, back cover and side panel. The aim of the paper is to create the L&T power box side panel by using parametric pro/E wild fire 5.0. The part modeling, Core-cavity design, CNC manufacturing programming and Mould flow analysis i.e simulation to avoid potential mould-filling problems is done by pro/E wild fire 5.0. Mould base design and Mould calculations are also done in this paper

Structural analysis is done for core and cavity by using ANSYS software to know the pressure, displacement, stress results. Cost of the total die assembly and cost comparison of different plastic components (HDPE, ABS, PP, and PC) are estimated. Here the process is using in injection moulding and manufacturing a variety of parts from simple to complex components.
