We have studied the effect of the operating conditions for the vibration mechanism of a radial braiding machine on the cover factor for a braided preform. We present empirical dependences of the cover factor for a braided preform on the operating amplitude and frequency of the vibration mechanism. We have obtained adequate and statistically significant models for the dependence of the cover factor for a braided preform on the operating frequency of the vibration mechanism for a Herzog RF 1/64-120 braiding machine.
