Many industrial processes - laminating, vulcanizing, extruding, curing, bonding and isothermal or superplastic forming - require the use of heated metallic platens and dies.  For these applications, there are basic design criteria essential for efficient and effective results in processes ranging from 100 to 2,200˚F (36 to 1,204˚C). The main areas of concern in designing a heated tool or platen...
