Hello,

Could you please explain what is difference between a braiding machine and a spiraling machine?

Hello again rahm,

Both are typically shielding or armoring machines for small diameter cables. The fine wires can be copper, aluminum, tinned steel, stainless steel and so on.

The spiraling machine applies an open helix of fine wires to the surface of the small cable. You can see a video of the machine in operation here:

and here


The braiding machine weaves the fine wires around the surface of the small cable. You can see a video of that here:

and here


In each instance a series of fine wires are first parallel wound on a small bobbin (carrier) which is then mounted in the braiding or spiraling machine.

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.
