A bit about Platen ...

In letterpress printing, a platen is the perfectly flat steel (or earlier, wooden) plate which is pressed onto the back of paper to cause an impression to be made from the type. Sometimes spelled platten. Also a roller used in friction-feed printers to hold the paper in position for the print head.
