What are the considerations when designing the base of a household steam iron

Update:15 Jan
The base design of a home steam iron is a key factor in ensuring the stability, anti-sticking and safety of the device. Professional base design requires consideration of many aspects, including material selection, coating technology, center of gravity balance, and user-friendly features.
material selection:
The base is usually made of metal or high-temperature resistant plastic materials, such as aluminum alloy, stainless steel or special engineering plastics. These materials have good thermal conductivity and high temperature resistance, and can effectively conduct the temperature of the heating element to ensure even heating of the entire bottom. Material selection also needs to consider wear resistance to prevent the surface of the base from wearing during use.
Anti-stick coating technology:
The surface of the base is usually covered with an anti-stick coating to reduce friction with clothing and prevent clothing from sticking to the base. This coating usually uses polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or ceramic materials to ensure an anti-stick effect and improve wear resistance. Professional coating technology also needs to consider stability under high temperatures to ensure that long-term use will not cause the coating to peel or deteriorate.
Center of gravity balance:
The base design of a household steam iron needs to consider the center of gravity balance of the device to ensure that it is not easy to tip over during use. The reasonable center of gravity design allows the iron to stand stably on the base, making it easier for users to operate. In addition, the balanced center of gravity design also helps reduce user hand fatigue during operation.
Cable storage system:
Some base designs also include cable management systems for neatly storing power cords. This not only makes the base tidier, but also avoids cluttering the power cord during use. A professional cable storage system needs to take into account convenience of use, ensuring that users can easily roll up the power cord and store it inside the base.
Base stability:
The stability of the base is directly related to the user's safety during operation. Professional design needs to ensure that the bottom of the base is designed to be flat, able to fully contact different surfaces, and reduce the possibility of tilting. There may be anti-slip pads around the base to increase friction and prevent the iron from sliding or shaking during use.
