Once the sides are conformed to the mold, they are clamped in place and left on the heated mold until they are completely dried out.  The mold is then turned off and allowed to cool completely before the sides are removed.  This is a slow process – it takes a full day to bend the two sides and the bindings for a guitar – but it prevents the sides springing back afterwards.
