| Definition of Platen |
| 1. The flat plate of a press that is often found in the laminating, molding, plastic, board, and forest product industries. Used in the manufacturing of furniture, tires, gaskets, particle board, and plywood. A platen is typically heated with oil, water, steam or electric. |
Typical Heating and Cooling Methods of Platens:
- Steam Platen for cooling and cooling
- Water Platen for heating and cooling
- Oil Platen for heating and cooling
- Electric Platen for heating
Hot Oil, Steam, Water and Electric Platens for Heating and Cooling.
Since its inception in 1954, Custom Engineering has grown to be one of the world`s largest suppliers of precision machined controlled temperature Platens, and is North America`s largest Platen manufacturer. In addition to shipping to all fifty states, Custom Engineering also ships to customers in South America, Europe, Japan, China, and India who depend on them for production Platens.
New or Refurbishing Old, let us help you decide . . We are your experts in heated platen manufacturing.Platens from Custom Engineering are in use today in every imaginable industry; from compression molding of rubber to hot forming of Titanium, from Copper clad and decorative laminating to the manufacturing of plywood, hard board, and particle board.
|A Heating and/or Cooling Platen are an integral part of a manufacturing process for any number of products - from O-rings and seals, to conveyor belting and tire retreads; from plywood, paneling to counter tops and furniture. |
The sizes and applications of Platens are as varied as the products they produce. Custom Engineering makes Platens as small as 12" square for use in laboratory presses and as large as 10` x 52` for the manufacturing of board and panel products.
Custom Engineering`s Press Platens are used for applications as simple as cooling molds after curing and as high tech as hot forming of titanium and composites at 1700 degrees F.
Since 1954, Custom Engineering has manufactured Platens for every imaginable application and is the most experienced Platen manufacturer in the world.
