Abstract : Ceramic tooling is now used to satisfy the requirements of cold forming and high temperature applications. Work was concerned with molding dies, embedded element hot sizing tooling, hydroblocks, and tooling improvement methods. One new molding die is now used in production. Heat differential problems of the hot sizing die have largely been eliminated. Ceramic molding dies, hydroblocks, and hot sizing dies are capable of producing acceptable parts. Additional applications of ceramic tooling should be considered where heat distortion of conventional tools is a problem, and for reduction of tooling costs. (Author)
