Abstract
In this paper the possibilities to create a rapid tooling process using ceramics as tool inserts were studied. The ceramic components used as tool inserts for injection moulding of thermoplastics were manufactured by indirect rapid prototyping of a reaction infiltrated silicon carbide ceramic material. This material is characterised by a near zero-shrinkage with high hardness and good thermal conductivity.
