Thermal uniformity issues are a big problem with many rubber tooling applications. Weather you are utilizing heated platens or heating your tools directly, thermal uniformity is a concern.
Due to the complex part geometries, it is not uncommon to have multiple inserts within a tool. Every insert that is added to a tool presents an additional challenge for thermal transfer. The best practice to take is to implement a heat source or Isobar heat pipe into the insert. The goal is to bridge the thermal break between the tool and the insert. By doing this you will eliminate potential thermal recovery issues that can typically occur.
