Composite tooling is traditionally made of a metal tooling surface and a support structure. For large products, these tools become often very large metal structures that have a large associated thermal mass. The goal of this target was to investigate a

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

It proved difficult to overcome the obstacles observed. Feasible, cost-effective, solutions using commercially available materials could not be developed further within the available definitions of the target. Considering the availability and high cost
