The purpose of this study is to get optimum design and operation conditions of the heating rubber roller for laminating process. The cause of performance degradation of heating rubber roller is delamination of rubber on metal tube, rubber aging due to high temperature. We measured the material properties of thermal expansion, thermal conductivity, specific heat and density and analyzed thermal distributions of rubber layer using finite element method. As a result of heat/flow analysis, the density distribution of heating coil must shorten the stabilization time by reducing the temperature deviation on the length direction at the temperature rising section after increasing the density of the area contacting with the laminate film at the center part which is an opposite of the current composition while enabling to maintain the temperature of heater to be consistent while maintaining the temperature deviation to be low when heat loss is created. Finally, we determined optimum heating method of heating rubber roller.
