Abstract

The manufacturing of rubber products has a steady growth. Thereby modernization of existing and design of new advanced equipment for this industry is a topical problem. The article is devoted to optimization of design and performance characteristics of press equipment’s heating system, realizing the process of hot vulcanization rubber in molds. The optimization methodic is based on minimization of temperature difference on the platen’s working surface and can be applied to platens with any type of heating. The choice and justification of methods for formation, verification and finding an extremum of optimality criterion’s response surface has implemented. The example of developed methodic application for optimization a heating platen with rectangular inductors has shown which was made possible to reduce the temperature difference in 2 times. According to results of research the choice of preferable experimental designs for that type of problems has found.
