The paper presents the results of the analysis of failure in the bearing elements of the equipment of the locking mechanism of the high-pressure press for high-pressure casting of products made from aluminum alloy. Based on the analysis of the operating conditions of the press, material of the failed stationary plate and its stress analysis using FEM for various cases of loading, conclusions regarding possible causes of the plate failure were drawn.
