    Braiding is a process in which fiber yams are woven into a13; fonn or shape by repeatedly crossing left and right, radically wound strands on a mandrel confonning to the shape of the end product. If the end product is cylindrical the manual braiding operation is adequate. If the end product is other than cylindrical like conical, ogive etc. that requires different speeds of mandrel motor as the braiding progresses, then the manual control does not yield good results. PC based braider controller controls the speed of the mandrel motor with encoder data for braiding position. The encoder data gives the position of braiding to an accuracy of 0.01 inch. The manual control console is interfaced with PC through an Add-on card and necessary isolation circuits for automatic braiding. The control voltages are developed in real time through DAC's in the Add-on card. Hence we can achieve good quality of braiding for any shape with the present work
