Phenomenon of winding delivered yarn is observed at various stages of textile production such as winding at weaving preparation, soft dye package winding, rewinding of soft dye packages/ left over packages from warping creels, assembly winding prior to twisting, winding at unconventional spinning machines for taking up spun yarn, yarn singeing, single end sizing, take up winding at spinning lines of synthetic yarns, yarn texturising, sewing thread finish winding, winding of string wound filter cartridges etc. Technical developments in winding systems are taking place to offer new possibilities in package building. Efficient utilization of such technologies demands thorough understanding of various winding related aspects. This book intends to highlight on fundamental aspects of yarn winding in a broader perspective.

The book contains eight chapters focusing on a range of topics on yarn winding. The first chapter introduces yarn winding as a weaving preparatory process. Basics of building winding packages are explained in second chapter clarifying frequently used winding related terminologies like random winding, patterning, precision winding, gain, open wind, close wind, head wind, after wind etc. Principles of various random, precision and step precision winding systems are covered in third chapter along with basic mathematics involved. The part of mathematics of Chapter 3 is based on author’s fundamental understanding, research experience and interaction with the industries. There are diverse end uses of wound packages, each having its specific requirements. These can be achieved through optimal selection of various parameters related to package build which are discussed in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 is dedicated to various measures on winding machines employed to maintain optimum yarn tension during winding. Significance of yarn clearing and various yarn clearing devices are discussed in Chapter 6. The same chapter includes a detailed note on yarn splicing. Chapter 7 describes various methods of package driving and yarn traversing on winding machines. Various winding package faults and their remedies are discussed in Chapter 8.

For ease of understanding, the text is supplemented by various self explanatory labeled diagrams and photographs. Main features of the latest generation of winding systems of leading manufacturers are also included in the book.

It is hoped that this book will prove to be a useful reference for students, academicians, textile technologists as well as persons from other engineering disciplines like chemical, mechanical, electrical, electronics, instrumentation and computer dealing with winding systems.

I apologize in advance for any errors and omissions in the content and hope that there would be an opportunity later to rectify them.
