We are looking for any recommendations of the torque others are using to secure clamps to mold platens.  PPE recommends 245 ft./lbs. for 5/8" bolts.  All of our set-up tech's are complaining that is too much and they are worried they are stripping out threads in the platen.  What are others using?

Thanks in advance,
