Abstract : An investigation was conducted to develop more proficiency in the fabrication of plastic tooling as a manufacturing aid in the production of Ordnance components. A limited study of the cementing and reinforcing characteristics of epoxy resins is presented. Four current production machining applications were selected and techniques for fabricating plastic tools were developed. The plastic tooling applications were evaluated. (Author-PL).
