This paper refer to the centrifugal casting process,in a situation when the molten metal is poured into the mold, the other end of the mould from where the pipe is taken out remains open .This end requires to be closed tightly so that due to centrifugal force, the molten metal does not sprinkle out. The other end of the mould which remains open is closed by a metal covering. This is fixed tightly to the frame by nut and bolt arrangement. The fixation of this covering is done manually. Workers need to tight each and every nut before the starting of casting process and again unlock these nut and bolts before liberating the casted pipe for further processing. This whole locking and unlocking of covering takes 5 – 6 min manually. This time is considered extra, which we can consider as wastage time. So in manufacturing of one pipe if 5-6 min is wasted at the end of the day, and at the end of the financial year we can calculate a loss in productivity by 20-30% to be approximate
