The heated surface is of aluminium, 70 × 54 inches. It is heated electrically in two sections, each taking 1700 watts. Temperature control is by Sunvic energy regulator. At full load the table takes just over 2 hours to reach 60°C, and starts cooling at about 3° every 10 minutes when the current is switched off. Vacuum is led to two openings in the table, one at each end. (G.T.)
