Crane hooks are one of the important components which are used to transfer materials having heavy loads, mainly in industries. Crane hooks are liable components subjected to failure due to stress in accumulation of heavy loads. The design parameters for crane hook are area of cross section, material and radius of crane hook. In the present work optimization of design parameters is carried out using Taguchi method, total three parameters are considered with mixed levels and L16 orthogonal array is generated .The optimum combination of input parameters for minimum Vonmises stresses are determined.
