The machine concept differs from the single-twist system in that one rotor turn generates two cable twists / turn. The braid is given the first twist at the stranding point of the system feed. At this point, the stranding material still has twice the length of lay of the desired final geometry. The final braid length of lay with the second stranding twist is only completed at the second turning point, before being introduced back into the static coil former.http://www.jslmet.com/tube-stranding-machine/horizontal-pipe-stranding-machine/double-twist-stranding-machine.html
