A simple bench for the task of hammering out metal into basic armour plates.
The Plate Beating Station is a crafting building type introduced in patch 0.50. This crafting station allows players to craft Armour Plating from Raw Iron. Armour Plating is later used to construct plate based armour at the Heavy Armour Smithy. The station requires no power to run, but does require manual labour of a worker. Using it improves the Armour Smithing skill.
