Heating Platens Reduce Mold Surface Temperature Variation
Venango Machine Company’s MultiZone heating platens with a control system reduce surface temperature variation in compression molds by almost 400 percent.
Venango Machine Company’s MultiZone heating platens with a control system reduce surface temperature variation in compression molds by almost 400 percent, delivering precise control to ensure good product and faster recoveries, and saving time and money. The heating platens improve temperature uniformity, increase CPK while lowering the standard deviation and lead to shorter cure times and lower scrap rates.
The company manufactures steam, hot oil, electrically heated (cartridge and strip), high temperature and heating/cooling platens for hydraulic press and compression molding applications. Platens accommodate round, square or rectangular designs for any application. Regardless of press size or type, the company designs new platens or simply manufactures platens to OEM specifications.

Recently, I reconnected with an industry colleague who will bring some international expertise to the states this May to discuss one of the hot topics in moldmaking today: conformal cooling. And, this will be followed up at Amerimold in June.
What can a company do when it has a healthy flow of work running through its facility but a lack of skilled workers to complete it all in an efficient, cost-effective manner? This moldmaker found the solution in two Hurco VMX 42i CNC mills with conversational programming capability.
What happens at Amerimold stays at Amerimold. Well, that’s not true. Attendees return to their shops with what they’ve learned from the technical conference program and exhibit floor technology displays. Here is a look at what you may have missed.
