Main Heat Plate
Function: The main heat plate ensures the required form temperature is met, so that as it travels into the form tool it is optimised for forming.
Toolrite Offering: CMM for flatness and regrind appropriately for flatness, if possible. Remove worn coatings, pre-treatments, prepare surfaces for recoating.
Alternatively, design and manufacture new plates when there is too much distortion or wear. Pre-treat and coating with different options, e.g. plasma, to keep them to specification.
