Abstract

The braiding machines with 4x4 set of horn gears and computer controlled switches can be arranged for production of braided structures with different cross sections. The objective of this work is to analyse the possible basic configurations on such machine. These basic configurations can be used in the future as main building elements for more complex structures with bifurcations. The analysis is performed using numerical simulation of the braiding process with the software TexMind Braiding Machine Configurator.

Keywords: Braiding machine, 3D braiding, horn gear arrangement, Braiding Machine Configurator
