A project about multi bifurcated branch braided structures for lashing straps and cables was carried out in the Institute for Materials Science at Hof University. For this work three manufacturing processes were used. The braidings were produced on a Herzog variation braider and the woven structures on shuttle and needle looms. The aim was to create bifurcated structures without sewing several woven or braided fabrics together. The woven fabrics had only two branches, but with the Herzog variation braiding machine structures with two and up to six branches have been produced. The two branched fabrics were tested for their tensile strength. The main result is that the structures with less elongation have better tensile strength.
