Their are a few possibilities.

First thing. Have you done a PID tune on the heat bed ?

If you have then a few thing to check if you have a multimeter. Measure the resistance of the heatbed while it's off. Measure the voltage at the heatbed when it's on.

Another possibility is if you are in a cold environment. You may need to add some insulation on the underside of the bed.

@Charles, is there a benefit to adding insulation even if you are not in a cold environment? Just thinking about current draw may be less therefore less chance to damaging the fragile psu's they sell? Also is the BW a 24v bed?
