Abstract: This chapter introduces the range of manufacturing processes for polymer matrix composites discussed in detail in the book Manufacturing techniques for polymer matrix composites (PMCs). It discusses short-fiber composite molding processes, such as injection and compression molding, as well as the processing of polymer nanocomposites. This book covers the major manufacturing processes for polymer matrix composites with an emphasis on continuous fibre-reinforced composites. It covers the major fabrication processes in detail. Very few books cover the details of fabrication and assembly processes for composites. This book fills the gap of knowledge in the field of natural fibre composites for the research community. Among the methods reported that are being used to produce components from natural fibre composites include hand lay-up, compression moulding, filament winding, injection moulding, resin transfer moulding, pultrusion and vacuum bag moulding.

The manufacturing processes that are available for thermoset composites can be selectively adapted for thermoplastic composites. However, the primary manufacturing of thermoplastic composites is not very conducive as processing of thermoplastic composites requires heavy and strong tooling.   Sabu Thomas is a Professor of Polymer Science and Engineering at Mahatma Gandhi University (India). He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a Fellow of the New York Academy of Sciences. Thomas has published over papers in peer reviewed journals on his polymer composite, membrane separation, polymer blend and alloy, and polymer recycling research and has edited three books. Machining of Polymer Composites is an indispensable reference/source book for process design, tool and production engineers in composite manufacturing and can be used as a textbook for graduate and upper level undergraduate courses in manufacturing and mechanical engineering.

Book Reviews / Materials Research Bulletin 35 () – Advanced composites manufacturing T.G. Gutowski (Ed.), John Wiley & Sons, Inc., New York, , pages, hardback, ISBN X, US$ This book is an overview of achievements in the field of advanced composites processing.   Manufacturing of Polymer Composites completely covers pre- and post-design issues. While the book enables students to become fully comfortable with composites as a possible materials choice, it also provides sufficient knowledge about manufacturing-related issues to permit them to avoid common pitfalls and unmanufacturable designs.4/5(1).
