Plastic components are taking important role in human life both in form of consumer and industrial goods aspect. Manufacturing of plastic components can be done in so many ways among those manufacturing method, Injection moulding is leading one. In this present project a cavity part (conical cup) of injection mould assembly is considered for analysis. In the first case a cavity half section with three holes is developed in by using PRO-E Wildfire 5.0 software. And thermal, structural analysis is done which is comes under ANSYS 11.0 analysis. In the second case a cavity half section with six holes is developed by using PRO-E Wildfire 5.0 and thermal, structural analysis is done. In the third case a cavity half section with twelve holes is developed by using PRO-E Wildfire 5.0 and thermal, structural analysis is done.
