Both techniques are typically utilized for shielding applications. The key difference is that with the braiding process which is a weave, the rotational speed is much slower than a spiral wrap process. However, with the increase in speed comes the lack of consistent shield as the wires have more ability to shift in a wound application as opposed to a woven setup.
