This paper presents an example of a stress analysis of the arm of an industrial operation machine. The introduction describes the systematic design and stress calculation of the constituent parts of the industrial operation machine. For stress analysis, the finite element method was chosen, whereby a brief description of the method and the finite elements is given. The paper describes the creation of the finite element model of the arm of the industrial operation machine, together with the courses of the resulting final deformation and displacement, as well as the resulting von Misses stress behaviour.
